if you can't have best always strive for better.
The other day I had a work function that required me to head up to San Francisco, and in all my grand ambition I was hoping to take the train up. Unfortunately a fire drill entailed and I missed the train. So instead I ended up driving my car to the event. The saving grace was that I was able to drive some people up and back saving a few other cars from being on the road.
Not best, but sometimes better is all you can do.
