The Game Came
About a week back, I had been wanting to have two expansion games for “Rome:Total War” which are all PC games. So one day when my father had free time, I asked him if he would order them for me online at Amazon.com. I had a little doubt he would say yes, but in the end I kept faith and he said yes. The two were due for arrival by mail on two separate dates – one game might arrive a few days or a week from when my father ordered the games, and the same thing for the other game.
About a week had gone by and since then, only one of the games had come. So one day I decided to use “The Secret”… but I was not going to use it to attract the other game, I was going to use it to attract a movie I had been wanting to see for so long. My Dad was going to the supermarket, and before he left I asked him if he could rent the movie “Vantage Point” for me. He said yes. But the renting machine called the “Big Red Box” had some history with us of not having the DVDs we want. The DVDs would come in the renting machine at the date it said it would come, but somehow there wouldn’t be enough from time to time depending on how many people rented the DVD.
So on that day I kept visualizing in my head the movie “Vantage Point” and having the DVD in my hand. Then I was distracted when my mother told me to get the mail, and so I did, but I still kept my positive mindset on the DVD, feeling happy as ever. As as I opened the mailbox there was mail mostly for my parents, BUT, there was a package in the mailbox, and in my heart I knew it was the other expansion game that I wanted. I opened it and there it was… the last expansion game I wanted. But then the doorbell rang and I was pretty sure it was my Dad. As soon as I opened the door I asked if he had the movie, and he said, “It was the last one.”
So not only did I get the last expansion game I wanted, but I also get to see the movie I practically craved for, and as you can expect it was a phenomenal day.
