Now y’all know I’m not a huge fan of sushi! It was just a couple of months ago that my friend convinced me to try it. If you remember, there was ONE that I enjoyed. With that being said, I still would not pick a sushi bar when being asked out to eat. So, we went to dinner the other night and guess where we ended up...a sushi restaurant. I was a little annoyed because I was hungry and didn’t see ANYTHING on the menu that I was interested in. And to make matters worse, I could look out of the window and see a Cheesecake Factory. The waiter came to take our order and at the last second, I saw the California Roll on the menu. Since that was the only thing I knew I would half way like, that’s what I ordered. He ordered some other entrees. The food comes out and our sushi (different kinds) are on the same plate! AND, he wouldn’t tell me which one was mine! So, because I know everything, I just went in on what I just knew was the California Roll. Listen, when I say I devoured each one!!! I got down to the last two and he looks at me and says “You like it?” I looked at him puzzled because I just knew he was getting ready to drop a bomb on me!
The man let me eat almost all of what I thought was mine and then decided to tell me I was eating his lobster rolls. The funny thing is, I swore to him I don’t eat lobster! The look on his face was annoyingly priceless!
In life, we can’t be afraid to take chances. You never know what you might like, what you can do, or how great you can be if you never try. Go after that new job, or the person you’ve been crushing on, or that new home! Don’t live in fear. I encourage you to do it! Go on honey and take a chance!
