...After a trip to mall solely with the intention of appeasing my mother by not isolating myself indoors for another day, thus hopefully decreasing the possibility of her haranguing me about not leaving the house for days on end (one that took hours longer than expected, and bored me to tears - does not help when you're pressed for time and doing absolutely nothing productive for hours grate on your nerves, for God's sake), we went (or rather, I was dragged there) to Chou Lee's Chinese Restaurant
. Not that I do not like the place - oh, quite the contrary. But then again, when you're just itching to go home-...
....But first, I'd like to point out the little time I spent in what I would deem, 'Tea Heaven'...not named so, I must admit...but it certainly is a place where you can probably achieve some sort of...'Tea Nirvana'...
...Probably that's why it's called, 'Teavana'
...in Lenox Mall. Perfect.
...I spent a good while in there, taking gracious liberties in sampling their complimentary mini-cups of tea. And by liberties, I do mean 'generous', recalling that I may have sampled at least 20 of those little cups over and over again...
...We left Teavana spending a whopping (approx.) $50 on tea. Oh, and that German cane sugar. Wait-...German
Up to now, I would have believed that a cash-crop like Sugar Cane, primarily produced in the tropical climates of the West Indies, would not be able to grow in Germany - a place with a rather unforgiving climate, as to my knowledge.
...I do believe that I have now learned everything I have to learn with life. Expect the unexpected. That's it.
...In any case, the most noteworthy point of the day today was my find while at the Chinese Restaurant. After randomly choosing a fortune cookie out of a large bowl (the one that conveniently caught my fingers while I blindly whisked my hand around), I do believe that I have come to further show consideration for the credibility of the fortunes in these cookies - if I have ever done so before, I mean. For, quite surprisingly, I cannot recall another time in which I have gotten two random fortunes so conveniently stuck in the same cookie, which both were extremely relevant to each other and my life at the same time. The first fortune I had said:
"You will have many friends when you need them."
...This may not seem very exciting to most people, but for someone in my case - as for someone who has been seriously doubting the bonds of friendship since of recent...It really made me...a bit...contemplative.
The second one said:
"Investigate new possibilities with friends. Now is the time!"
...Well, I would have to admit that I
was slightly taken aback by the two fortunes. Slightly.
So, in my recent stint of doubting the potency of friendship, seemingly attaining a newfound attitude that such relationships are ephemeral and that friends are apparently things to be recycled
- Out with the old, in with the new - as I have so deplorably discovered, these fortunes certainly hit the spot.
...So I stuck them in my daily planner.
Then over to Sonnie's place.
So! New friends, eh? Should I start...recruiting? XD
