I find it a little odd that people look to a normal incident
happening at the right time as a miracle, yet they pay little mind to
the amazing shit that created that "right time" in the first place.

A ten-thousand dollar accounting error? That's amazing.

Your company got work? Not so amazing (unless your company never gets
work, which I doubt is the case). I mean, really, what's more
probable to happen? Your company getting work, or your company losing
ten thousand bucks in an accounting error? If miracles can be
negative (and the definitions on m-w.com don't seem to imply a
positive event, just an event), your accounting error is the fucking

IMO anyway.
