On Saturday, I discovered that I was out of both gin and tonic water. My favorite store, which sells the best at the best prices, was closed for the weekend, and the prospect of biting the bullet and going all weekend without gin & tonics was too awful to contemplate. So I went with the flow and bought a bottle of Sapphire and some second-rate tonic for a few hundred yen more at another store.
That's how I went with the flow instead of biting the bullet.
Now wasn't that a nice edifying little story?
