Be Careful for What You Ask For ...

Be careful for what you ask for because you just might get it.

Let's use a puppy as an example.
On one hand a puppy is going to bring you a lot of smiles. On the other hand, you have no idea how much energy a puppy has and how creative a puppy can be when it comes to making its gums feel better.

Let's start right here - there is no such thing as a free puppy. You might not have to pay the person giving you the puppy any money, but that puppy definitely is not free. The puppy requires shots which requires a vet visit, not to mention food, a collar, a leash, a bunch of chew toys, and endless supply of dog treats, the annual licensing and the very required pooper scooper. If you happen to forget about the chew toys, the puppy is going to make his own chew toys, such as your shoes.

If you are a child. You may ask for a puppy because you think you really want a puppy. Not only does the puppy need all the aforementioned tangibles, but he also needs lots of love and attention - no matter what kind of mood you are in at the time he wants it. The puppy is a living and breathing creature, so you can't just toss him in the corner when you are done playing with him. You are responsible for him pretty much all the time - even after he grows up and becomes a dog.

Sometimes the best thing that happen to you is being told that you can't have puppy because sometimes the worse thing that can happen to you is getting what you want.

So be careful for what you ask for, you just might get it.

Make someone's day and perform a random act of kindness. However, I do not recommend giving them a puppy unless they really want it and have thought out the entire process.
