“Nearly all the best things that came to me in life have been unexpected, unplanned by me.”
Have you ever reached into the zipper pocket of your ski pants at the beginning of winter to find a $20 bill tucked inside, forgotten from the prior season?
Well, I have and it was totally unexpected. The best thing ever – when I could still buy most of a ski lift ticket with it.
Now, years later, that $20 might buy me a cup of coffee and a hamburger at the lodge. It’s why I no longer ski…too expensive.
Fast forward to June 3, 2019. I was rummaging around in the freezer at work. I’m in there every day, but haven’t been paying any attention to the contents hiding under the lower shelf. I don’t know what possessed me, but I started dragging things out of there and…
OMG! Look at this!
No, I did not find a $20 bill.
I found three packages of organic chicken breasts that I once threw in the freezer for Natasha because we didn’t have any spare room in our own freezer at home. They weren’t supposed to be there long, but were forgotten at some point. Perhaps because Natasha bought a chest freezer late last summer and a large quantity of chicken from her supplier and I thought I had brought that chicken home.
I texted Natasha with the unexpected good news. I would surmise that the chicken was worth about $30, which might be even better than finding a cold, hard twenty in the freezer.
Natasha responded, “Yay! Bonus! Thanks!”
It’s nice to come across the unexpected, whether it is money, frozen chicken or a valuable something you thought you had lost. They really are the best things in life.
Don’t you agree?
