Yesterday was my birthday. But frankly, I felt a little sheepish about celebrating, simply because my life has been a non-stop celebration for the past month.
I’m not bragging. But I seriously have been luckier over the past month than at any other time in my life. It’s just plain eerie.
- I won the family NCAA pool. I picked the final four correctly and had Kansas to win.
- I won a Segway tour for two around downtown Chicago. I’m actually completely psyched for this…
- I won the Sony “Young & the Restless” sweepstakes. Seriously. The 46″ TV just got delivered to my house yesterday (thanks to my brawny FIL and a reluctant FedEx guy).
- I got a hot new job at the MacArthur Foundation. I start at the end of the month.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m psyched for all the good fortune. I just hope there’s no karmic retribution…
