I’ve learned to be careful what you wish for.
I said not long ago when I was talking about my new gym that one of my goals was to make best friends with the morning parking attendant.
Here’s the update.
The original guy who was the attendant and I never really became besties. But he left and was replaced by the friendliest parking guy in the world.
I think I may be one of the few people who actually acknowledges him in the morning. And as a result, I’m clearly one of his favroites. From the moment I get there and choose a parking space, he’s right next to me. He helps me park, says “Good moring hawnee” and walks with me to the staircase that leads to the gym. The other day, he gave me “pie fine” which I learned from his outstretched hand meant “Hi-Five.”
Last week, he walked me all the way to my car and opened the door for me. Every day I see him he always says “See you tomorrow, hawnee.” Because of my schedule, I don’t always make it to the gym daily. He doesn’t care. He says it every time I see him. Even Fridays. And he doesn’t work Saturdays.
It’s only a matter of time before this turns to hugging.
And as much as I’m glad to have a friendly face in the morning… it’s a little much for my sleepy, tired, sweaty self.
But…it’s not his fault. I asked for it. And the universe provides what you ask it for. Even when the results aren’t exactly what you expected.
