Do you want fries with that?
I’ve been practicing my Grateful statement for the last 3 weeks. It is a big thing – another dream job. I’ve been practicing on little things, too. But I really didn’t focus on this one.
Last night after a glorious spring day being outside, my husband and I were discussing what to get for dinner from Arbies. He wanted fries, and I did not. We usually share them if we get them, so he joked that if he ordered them, he wouldn’t share them with me. Fine with me, I replied. I didn’t want them. As it turned out, he didn’t order them.
I was talking with the clerk about the day. When I was picking up the bags, she asked if we wanted fries – they had plenty.
