LUCK BE A LADY: Well, it’s the day after Thanksgiving and I am one lucky duck, I have to tell you. Here I am, stuck in this egregious mold pit and thinking what a moron I was for not putting in for a day off today, and then I open my email, and guess what? I have won the Irish, UK, South African, Nigerian, and Philippine national lotteries, all on the same day! It’s truly mind boggling how that happened, given that I didn’t buy any tickets for any of these worthy enterprises. It’s just my lucky day, I guess, although I still think having to send these folks my credit card information and Social Security information goes a long way to proving my heartfelt contention that most government run operations are inherently inefficient. Still, now that I can afford that Leica MP3 rangefinder camera with a super fast 50mm lens that I’ve always wanted, life can only get better and better. Oh frabjous day, callooh, callay, I chortled in my joy.
