Where are you Spring?

I have been trying to save money! Well because I need it. But today I went and got some to go from FuLin’s (a wonderful Chinese place here in Little Rock). A little history about FuLin’s:

Jake and I had been hanging out for a little while but it was still in the in between stage of being considered his girlfriend and still just dating, when he decided to take me out to eat at…..you guessed it, FuLin’s. It was a lot of fun and of course very special to me because it was our first “date” type outing. Well we got our fortune cookies and of course I always want everyone to read them out loud! I of course really wanted Jake to, especially after the face he had made once he opened his. (It was a look of humor and embarrassment.) It took literally ten minutes to get him to read it to me and actually I can’t remember if he actually read it to me or if I took it and read it. But the point is that it had the BEST fortune in it ever! His fortune said: Your true love is sitting beside you!!!!!!!!!!! How’s that for great!

Well today in my fortune cookie I was surprise with not one but TWO fortunes. I consider myself lucky!!!!!! The first one said that “Your short term goal will soon be realized” and the second one said “Time makes one wise. Ask advice from someone older than you”.

Now okay fine with the second one, but now I have to figure out which of my short term goals will be realized and who will be realizing it?!

Moving on. I have to say that I did not really watch The Bachelor this season, I was too busy watching quality TV (Toddlers and Tiaras and Jon & Kate plus 8), but I normally do watch it and I am with the rest of the country…….Jason, you my dear, are a scumbag with absolutely NO class.

Lately I’ve been feeling like I’m missing something and I think I finally figured out what it was. 70 degree weather! Yes, I am ready for Spring! Please, please come Spring. So I thought I would write Spring a letter of encouragement.

Dear Spring:

I feel like it’s been ages since we’ve seen each other. Once, a few weeks ago I thought I saw you, but then it ended up snowing…..must not have been you! I just wanted to let you know that I miss you terribly. It’s so hard to do even the smallest things without you around. For example, walk the dogs…..I only like to do it when you’re here with me. I feel like the sun stays out longer and the cold is scared of you, so it’s usually nice out. It’s also hard for me to look cute in my clothes without your assistance. I mean you always bring all kinds of fun patterns and new designs when you come around.  And although I love the holidays (Christmas is my favorite) once Valentine’s day comes around I find myself feeling depressed and down because I long for your warmth and the extra light you add to my day! Spring, you mean so much to me. I hate that we have to wait so long to see each other ever year……so I was thinking that maybe you could surprise me this year and come a little bit early! I talked to the groundhog and he said he doubted that you would, but I’m still crossing my fingers, because honestly I don’t know how much longer I can make it around here without you! So I can’t wait to see you and all the wonderful things that you always bring with you.

Sincerely yours,

Jonnie L. Honse

    I love your letter to spring! It’s exactly what I would say if I wrote to spring, especially the part about walking the dogs. I’m sick of the cold.

    I loved, loved, loved your letter to spring. I completely agree! I think spring is going to make an appearance for a few days and then get scared and hide again….Damn groundhog!

    Oh! And your fortune cookie story is so cute! You guys are meant to be! 🙂
