Bad Day Turned Good

{Author’s Note: This is created from a quote I saw on a website called ‘Peter Tork makes me smile!’}

“Mick, I don’t know what to do! This day has been awful for me! I burnt my breakfast and was late for work and I can’t find my guitar pick and…” I whined to my boyfriend one Friday evening.

“It’s ok hon,” he said, “Sigh I’ll go see if there’s anything I can do to help.”

Just as he left the room, Peter came in and sat down next to me.

“What’s wrong hippiechick?” he said, in a cheerful way, calling me by my nickname.

“Do you really want to know?” I asked.

“Yeah,” he said.

“K!” and I went on in this big thing for about 5 minutes. He listened to every word and then smiled at me.

“Ash, come on, don’t worry about all that. You’ve got the best friends in the world, and one heck of a boyfriend! Life is more then the little things. Let’s make plans to go out with everyone tonight and you and Micky can be together.” He smiled.

And like that, I was better. That’s all it took and I went out that night and had a great time, just like Peter said.

Moral: The little things don’t always count.
