Wisdom Wednesdays: Featuring Dr Sidney Wang
This week's e-mail comes from a reader named Charlene S. from Portland, Oregon. Charlene writes:
Dear Dr Wang,
I have always wanted to see Niagra Falls and I finally booked a trip to visit. However, a close friend is planning to elope with her boyfriend and asked me to be her maid of honor on the same weekend as my trip to Niagra Falls. My trip is mostly non-refundable, but I have always told my girlfriend that I would be there for her. What should I do?
Dr Wang responds: Dear Charlene;
Indeed you are in a predicament. If your friend suddenly decided to get married and expects you to drop everything and be there, she is being unreasonable. On the other fin, she is your best friend and you have already told her you would be her maid of honor. I have consulted the Great Bubble Wall in my tank and your future is now clear as the glass walls of my home...
You must go on your trip to Niagra Falls as planned. There you will meet someone who will play an important role in your future. This person is already within six degrees of separation from you.
Your girlfriend will be upset with you for missing her wedding, but do not despair, her wedding is ill-advised. This man she is planning to marry is evil. He is a fisherman who has rounded up some of my distant relatives for human consumption! This will be a source of some strain between you both, until she learns of his wicked ways.
The good news is that she will remarry a farmer- which is the true wedding you will serve as her maid of honor. In the meantime, keep on swimming upstream.
-Dr Sidney Wang
