They say, "be careful what you wish for, you just might get it." True. I was wishing for something last wednesday; I guess I wished really hard.
I was out shopping with my dad. I saw organic strawberries for buy one get one free. That made them 2 small packages for less than five dollars. I was so excited, but did not have any money. Dad did not want to buy them, he said they were overpriced and not worth it. I was so sad and would have done anything for a strawberry. I was even going to post that on facebook to see who would offer me strawberries and the price they would ask.
That was until I was called in to a job last minute. I was picked up for work thursday morning and was prepared to stare at a computer entering data all day. This is a job working for Mike Young, a dentist, who offered to pick me up and drive me to his house so I could work and make money. I like that idea. I get to his house and start on the work. After 2 hours of straight data entry I walk around to take a break.
I was so stiff, I took five or six laps around the inside of the house. (it is a huge five million dollar house, so when I say small laps, I mean small laps with out having to go outside.) After the laps I sit down and do some stretches. Then I sat cross legged and meditated to clear my mind for just a few min.
Before going back to work I decided to peek in the fridge. I know, I know, I'm so bad. But that is the price people pay when they have me work for them. I am a notorious food thief, that will never change. I love trying new food and seeing what people have in their cupboards. Even if there is nothing I want to eat, I always take stock of what is in the cupboards and such so that I would know what is available.
Anyways, I looked in the fridge and lo and behold, there was a batch of strawberries. I was saved. I savored the strawberries only allowing myself to eat one strawberry per break. It was heaven.
The next day I get a strawberry from a friends house. The day after that I come home to heaven. My parents fridge is filled with strawberries, and some home made strawberry jam. Of course jam is too much sugar for me but I still have been eating a little bit to enjoy.
So for the past seven days straight I have had almost a full basket of strawberries a day. I don't regret my wish, the problem is that now the strawberries are gone. I think I'm going to wish harder and see if it won't come true again. I think who ever came up with that saying was bitter from not getting what THEY wished for. Ha Ha.
