“I’m planning on being spontaneous sometime next week”

"Plan to be spontaneous tomorrow” is a jocular saying that has been printed on many images. The saying was posted on the newsgroup bit.listserv.os2-l on August 15, 1997.

Authorship is unknown. “Plan to be spontaneous tomorrow” is sometimes credited to American stand-up comedian Steven Wright, but there’s no evidence that he created the joke.
