that perfect hand…

In Ocean's 11, Danny said that "the house always wins. If you play long enough, never change the stakes, then the house takes you. Unless, when that perfect hand comes along, you bet big… and then, you take the house." Here's the hand I've been dealt, sometimes it's risky and sometimes it's safe, but all the time… it's perfect. It's mine.



Three weeks ago:
Me: Hi, I locked my keys in my car at UVic…could you send someone to help me out?

BCAA: Sure, I just need your card number and name please.

Me: 5555555555 and my name is Lucy.

30 minutes later:

BCAA: Hi, Lucy? Which car is it and I need your card.

Me: It’s the blue one. Thank you so much, I think I am in love with you. How’s your night going? (It was pouring rain and I had to go study.)

BCAA: Ohh not too bad, I just got on shift. (We chatted a little bit).

Fastforward, in the meantime, Mom has brought me my own BCAA membership. She sent me with hers for the interim at Christmas since her new car has roadside included for 3 years and since they never ask for id…

Friday afternoon:

Me: Hi, my starter is not working and I am stuck at the Can West Mall, could you send someone to tow me to a mechanic?

BCAA: Sure, I just need your card number and name please.

Me: 5555555555 and my name is Katie.

BCAA (upon arrival): Hi, Katie? Which ca…Katie?

And what do you know? The same guy came to help me this time.

Did he recognize me, you ask? Absolutely. And with an awkward, hilarious laugh at me, he asked for id this time. Shook his head, and got my car started and I have since got the part replaced. Atleast I am memorable?

In the words of Luke: What do you always say Kate? There is a lesson in this.

In the words of Amanda: Rewind…Delete.
