One of the principles for my version of rejection therapy is that if I get a ‘yes’, my request has to be something I want to do. While in Washington DC, a few folks suggested that I ask to sit on the lap of the Lincoln Statue at the Lincoln Memorial. It sounded simple, but was really hard to execute.
First of all, I can’t ask Mr. Lincoln himself since the statue itself probably won’t answer my request. Secondly, even if I get a ‘yes’ from a park ranger, would climbing on Mr. Lincoln land me in jail? Lastly, do I really want to sit on one of my favorite Presidents as if he were Santa Claus at a mall?
Just like all well-planned adventures, I wanted to have a plan B. Would I get rejections for both plan A and plan B?
