Top of the evening to all...
I often heard my mother say to me that life is unfair. I learned to accept that. She is right. My lament on that is that I do not mind that life is unfair. Every once in a while, I would like it to be unfair in my favour. It does not seem like an unreasonable request.
Having said that, I try to make note of when life is unfair in my favour. Three good things have happened over the last couple of weeks.
I am a member of Cycle Toronto, and have been for eight or nine years. It is Toronto's cycling union. During the month of June, there was a drawing for new and renewed memberships. The winner of the drawing won a bicycle. It is quite a comfortable ride. I ended up upgrading it quite a bit, both in terms of speed capability and in terms of basic issues of comfort, so I ended up with about $1000 worth of bicycle for less than half of that amount. Nice!!
That would have been sufficient. I then purchased a $3 instant lottery ticket. It won $100, and then I won another $15 the same day. My friend David says that playing the lottery is mathematical illiteracy. He is absolutely right. Still, yet again, life was unfair in my favour.
Today was the kicker. One of the local radio stations has a contest three times a day. If you are the tenth caller, you get to answer increasingly difficult trivia questions. A correct answer increases the amount of money won. An incorrect answer loses everything. You can quit at any time and take your winnings. I elected to quit after having won $500.
At this time, I would like to note for the record that life has been unfair in my favour. I do not expect it to continue, though I would not mind.
Have a good evening everyone.
