it pays to have good friends in your life.
these are the people who make me go on,
even when i feel like giving up.
so this morning,
karaoke texted me asking me to do her a favor.
she wanted my cable info to watch a show on her computer.
since she is one of my closest friends that i trust,
i said why not?
one thing about karaoke is she cooks really good.
her family makes the best food.
she always sends me pictures of food she makes.
well i’m no where close to florida to get some food,
and i was stupid hungry,
so i texted jokingly…
“i’ll take breakfast to go!
“well it will be 30 minutes-ish!”
i got up and made a small breakfast for myself.
i do mean “small”.
2 hot dogs
2 slices of bread
it didn’t have a lot of food in my fridge.
after i made it,
i went back to my room and got ready for e-church.
as i was watching,
a number i didn’t recognize called me.
when i answered,
the person did not speak any kind english.
i told them they had the wrong number.
well 5 minutes later,
they called back again.
“bro you have the wrong number.”
i hung up.
in about 5 minutes,
they called again!
“yooooo you have the wrong number!
stop calling my phone!”
i had to pull the (he)bitch out because he was making me real vex.
as i was hanging up,
i heard the person say…
i was confused as hell.
i started to wonder if it was someone i actually knew?
was it someone in trouble?
were they kidnapped and speaking in some kind of code?
but i had to look at the possibilities.
i got a little worried.
i didn’t know the number,
but this person knew my name.
suddenly karaoke called me.
the delivery guy is in your hallway with breakfast.
he says he is calling,
but you keep hanging up!”
i was so embarrassed.
i ran to open the door and sho nuff,
this short spanish wolf was outside my door with 2 bags.
i did not think karaoke thought i was serious about breakfast!
i apologized to this non-english speaking wolf profusely.
soooo definitely need to work on my latest funky attitude.
inside the bags was:
3 large pancakes
much better than what i made.
you know i get dumb emotional over shit like this.
don’t cry on me!”
the fact she did that for me when i was joking about the entire thing.
she told me how she googled the closest restaurant to me.
she paid for my breakfast all the way from florida.
she hoped the food was good.
i never even ate at that spot,
but the food was incredible.
even if it was bad,
i would have eaten it anyway.
i am so thankful for what she did.
lowkey: if you have a chance to do a good deed,
the way the person feels after you do it is incredible.
pay it forward for one of your friends this week.
