Good things come in threes. So do bad. Even the near misses can be counted with that number. I have to pick as to how I would count the following:
1. By a hair’s breath and only in the nick of time, Greg discovers the real departure time of his plane.
2. Greg, at the request of a clerk in a registry office, works for a day (maybe the better part of two days) getting together the true and accurate list of names and addresses of the shareholders in a small company he manages. Then he returns to the registry, is helped by another clerk, who says, no, to make these changes is unnecessary and will be costly.
3. Greg then goes to complete one of the last things on his list of errands -- a final haircut on the day before he leaves on his trip. Before he can get out of his car, a man backs out of the liquor store next door to the barber shop, ramming the side of Greg’s car. Then, as inexplicable as it seems, the SUV gives Greg’s car one extra bash.
How do I measure this?
Departure on time: checkmark
Save money at the registry: checkmark
No injury, no haircut: checkmark
My take? Greg is living on the right side of trouble.
