Case in point:

I won carbon-fiber Profile clip-on aerobars at a LA Tri Club 1st Thursday social event (the first 1st Thursday I’ve ever been to).

I wrote a haiku and won a free entry to the Hemet Tinsel Tri after I thought my 2005 tri season was already over.

And now, after Mel, Dave and I decided to try for the random drawing/ lottery slot for Escape From Alcatraz….

….I got a slot.

Shit, I should be buying freakin’ lottery tickets.
