Do you need anything?

People always ask me that when my partner is in the hospital. I say “no.”

“Would you tell me if you did?”

“No” again.

Then tonight, one of my friends is in the hospital, and I asked his wife if she needed anything. As I asked it, I wanted her to say “yes,” and I realized that people who ask me the same probably want the same.

So from now on, friends, I will respond in the affirmative. Here is a map to the nearest Burger King.
