You Can Have a Free Banana...If You Ask for It

"You can have a free banana." A big smile hit my face and I skipped around the produce aisle. A minute ago the Trader Joes guy had walked passed and casually greeted my boyfriend & I with the classic Seattle, "Hey, how are you?" Davey and I both said "fine" and then we looked at each other and corrected ourselves, "Actually, not so good." (We had a weird day). The Trader Joes guys frowned. "Can you cheer us up?" I asked. He smiled and pointed to the bananas. "Choose anyone you want. You can eat it as you shop." I was filled with sudden joy because it felt like I reached through to a parallel universe where cooler things happen. You get what you open yourself up to and ask for. This mini life adventure was probably subconsciously inspired by the book I'm currently reading: "Rejection Proof: How I Beat Fear and Became Invincible Through 100 Days of Rejection" by Jia Jian // Cha
