We all have our favorite spots where we eat and hang out with friends. We all have favorite go-to foods, the tastes and aromas that just mix perfectly with the spirit of the gang. This is our traditional food when Friday night comes, or the weekend, or the 4th of July. Here is what we suggest, just for fun. This week, if you plan on dining with friends, each order your food as you normally would. Get what you like. If you are ordering at a deli counter, you’ll want to keep each order separate for this exercise. Then, when the food arrives or when you get to your party venue with it, randomly switch plates or bags with someone else in the group. Even if you get something you’re already familiar with, this simple switching game has a significant impact. It creates a situation where you must make do with sudden change, but it also throws you a curve. We usually resist change. In this situation, since you are among friends, and you probably share similar tastes, change becomes an easy challenge to face, and enjoyable too. You never know, it could make you feel uncommonly daring the next time you face a real, sudden change of plans.
