I almost never win contests or drawings. And on the rare times when I do, I usually don’t win something I really want.

So, for once, I did. Someone in our office got concert tickets for tonght’s Steely Dan show, and I won the drawing.

And today I am sick, and I’m not up for going. Bother!

I’ve called the HR manager who ran the contest to see if one of the other people who entered would like to pick them up at the last minute. Shame for them to go to waste. But dammit, I really wanted to see that show.
