My fridge is empty
05 Mai 2019
My phone rings while I am skiing. My friend asks what we are doing on Saturday night. Without thinking I tell her, « We’ll be back from holiday at half past six, we’ve nothing planned and as our fridge is empty, we’d love to have supper at yours! »
My husband says: “You’ve got a cheek.”
I later found out that my friend had called to invite us and she’d thought it was lovely that I’d shared my hopes with her without any false modesty.
A week later, she called me again and asked the same question. As I already had something else on, I said I was sorry. Then she told me she’d really love a gin and tonic made the way only my husband knows how.
I invited her for drinks and we went to our dinner afterwards.
When we sincerely express what we would like, there is a good chance the other person would like to give it to us to bring us pleasure.
What about you? What would you really like to ask for?
