D is for Destiny

What is destiny? Is it the end result of a journey or a notion to explain why things happen the way they do? I don't believe in destiny though, so why am I writing about it? When I think of a journey I think of making stops to enjoy myself so the trip doesn't feel so grueling.

I stopped at the Country Inn and Suites on Wednesday night to get a room so that I wouldn't exhaust myself driving all night. The receptionist behind the counter asked if I had a reservation and when I said I didn't but needed a room for the night, she told me they didn't have any vacancies. I asked her if there were some convention in town or anything and when she said there wasn't, I almost thought she gave me some sort of smirk and that kind of pissed me off. I went back out into the parking lot and called Country Inn and Suites, made a reservation, and returned to the same receptionist.

She asked me in a snide way if there was something else she could help me with and I said, "Yes, I have a reservation. I must have been destined to stay here this evening." I think she actually thought she was smarter than me.
