This is one of those posts I very occasionally write that has nothing to do with teaching at all. It happens. (WHAT?! There is life outside of teaching? Tell me more!) I know, right? Shocking.
The other day I was craving Chinese food. Does that ever happen to you? You just absolutely have to have something really specific at that moment? Anything else, and I wouldn't have been happy. I really really wanted Chinese food. But not just any Chinese food, mind you. It had to be Chinese buffet food. (Random, anyone? Yep. That's me. Random. It happens.)
I texted a friend who had already eaten, so she invited me to the Timberwolves game. Do they have egg rolls there? I think not. So I had to turn her down.
I texted another friend who was busy. What? Busy? That's ridiculous. What could possibly be more important than Chinese food?
I was starting to think I'd have to settle for homemade pasta (sigh...) when I got a last-minute text back from a friend (new bff?) that made my day. His response to my randomness: "If you're craving something, you might as well indulge yourself. Let's go."
That's friendship right there, man. People who indulge your cravings with gusto.
Guess who got her fill of sesame chicken and wontons? Yep, that's me. Even my fortune cookie was awesome.
Sometimes indulgence is just the best thing ever. (That and cheese wontons.)
