#1 - Last night I saw that my neighbor was throwing away a loveseat (I guess that is the word for a small couch?). I went over to look at it in the dark. There didn't seem to be anything broken or wrong with it. As part of moving the television into the basement at the sweet man's place it would be nice to have an additional place to sit in the living room. So I called him up and asked what he thought. He had similar thoughts to myself, so I grabbed it and brought it inside.
However, a principal concern remained. How was I going to get it over there? My one thought was a good friend of mine's father who lives nearby and has an SUV. I would have liked to call him before I grabbed the couch off the curb, but it was 10pm.
#2 - So I waited until this morning and then hesitantly called and asked. I was apprehensive to do it even though I was 90% sure he would be happy to help. It can be so hard to ask! Anyway, I just called and he not only said he would but...
#3 - He said he'd come by this morning and we could get it done today!
I feel so wealthy.
#4 - I was planning to bus to the sweet man's later this AM anyway so this really couldn't be more convenient!
#5 - I like to have the steps all figured out before I act. So it takes a leap of faith for me to act before I have the steps in place.
But I'm glad I did.
And as a bonus...a little spoken word
