There is something exciting about a walk with my dog down my street — even though everything we see and do along the way is entirely predictable.

I know members of the church congregation are going to have their Saturday cookout. I know my dog Milo will start pulling when he sees the grocer at the end of the street and realizes a treat is coming any minute.
