Unfortunately I can’t think of a mistake I’ve ever made that’s led to exceptionally nice results. Of course I can most certainly imagine that that must have happened to a significant number of people over the course of mankind’s history. Someone may stay home from work one day, or miss out on an appointment, only to find out that somehow he has thereby either averted a tragedy or gotten some interesting benefit to show for it. Maybe the occasional misspelling or memory lapse would do me a world of good. Nobody ever has any idea what stroke of fortune can befall him just because of a mere lapse of judgment. It goes to show that often the greatest of breakthroughs can be counted on by way of bad breaks. Maybe I should even be looking forward to my next missed train, forgotten phone number or other mishap. Dame Fortune often shows up in the very oddest ways.
