Me: Actually, I bought a lottery ticket that night. I was sure I'd win.
Her: (laughing) I think you already used up your luck for the day.
The girl that was in the car with me politely told me that we probably wouldn't be seeing each other again. I guess almost getting your ticket punched on a second date'll do that.
That same day, I also realized I how much work I had ahead of me both with the car and with real work.
And to top it all off, I got onto the wrong train on my way to the junkyard to deal with my crashed car. I was going to waste at least an hour getting there now.
Little things, yeah. But we know that the little things mean a lot to me.
Then these three kids stepped into the subway car and started hitting everything around them with drumsticks.
I asked them if they would play me something. They did.
The little things almost ruined my day. Then again, a little thing saved it. The guy at the pound said I was a lucky boy. The doc said I was fine.
Later that night, I met four lovely ladies, three of whom were traveling from Sweden. The girl in the conversation above lives around the way. I also met some other people but those are stories for a different time.
I also fixed my screen.
Perhaps best of all, I slept six hours that night.
Thank God for the little things.
