Making the Most of a Moment |
Yesterday, as I was leaving dinner at Boa,
"Excuse me Miss, do you know what means the word ko-rage?"
I turned; it was one of the valets.
"It means bravery. Be brave." My car had come and the driver valet waiting for me to take it was impatient. Sunset is a busy street and he was nearly standing in traffic—
"Be brave..." the valet murmured. He showed me a slip of paper: His fortune from a fortune cookie. He still needed to Know.
"Yes, so basically this says," and, as we walked toward my car to relieve the driver valet, I paused so as to be very clear, "be brave and good things will come."
He smiled to himself, and said thanks.
I thought about it all the way home.
