Have you had a happy and unexpected surprise in your life recently?
The word “recently” for this discussion will be limited to, say, the time period starting with the beginning of September till now.
For me, long story short: I am in Fairbanks, Alaska, and have been since the end of September because I could not find work in Spokane, WA for a year. My pregnant wife and 2 boys are in Spokane, WA. I have been steadily getting more depressed and sad about it since, which yes, hasn’t been helped by the lack of sunlight.
So last Saturday night I’m working and my fellow laborer starts to tell me about the concert he’s going to later. I ask him who was in town and he says “Filter”. I say holy shitsauce Batman I want to go! So he gets me a ticket (which I paid for later) and it turns out to be one of the top 5 coolest shows that I have ever seen. Not bad for finding out about it about 5 hours before the show started.
So what sort of happy accident has been a bright spot in your life lately? Edited for too many capitalized words in the title (sheesh).
