Overheard at Booth 1: Cryptoquotes - Some Luck by Garrison Keillor

 "Some luck lies in not getting what you thought you wanted but getting what you have, which once you have got it you may be smart enough to see is what you would have wanted, had you known."
— Garrison Keillor

So I really wanted this flu? I must be a masochist.

He said "some luck," not all luck. This rings true for me. In my own life, a few total disasters eventually led to some of the best things that ever happened to me.

Like having to stand in what looks like a longer line only to find out it's moving much more quickly.

A nice spin on moving on after not getting what ever we didn't get. I'm thinking of a job that, had I got it, I'd have been excessed within a few years. Instead I had a full career with that same agency.

letfreedomring similar situation, very early in my career I wanted to work at a company so bad but I took a job across the street from the company because they did not hire me. Looking out my window one day, I saw TV crews, camera trucks and a big commotion. The company I wanted so desperately to work for had gone bankrupt. I was glad I had NOT gotten that job over there.
