I’m taking off on a road trip tomorrow, which means I’ll be taking a little vacation time too. I will post while I’m gone—though at the moment it’s unclear how often—so do check in. And expect me back here on the regular the Tuesday after Labor Day. And speaking of which, this time of year always puts me in mind of getting fired from Lucky, as that happened right after Labor Day too, back in 2010. Losing that job was a jolt at first, but wound up being one of the best things that ever happened to me. So tell me this: what happened in your life that felt like a curse at first but ended up being a blessing?
