Today, I noticed at lunch some waste of a human being keyed my car. There is a long stripe down the driver's side that could be nothing but intentional. I will be forced to notice it every time I get in. I like my car. It is the only car I've ever had that is a 'step up' from lower end models. My ride is a little over a year old. Oddly, I wasn't all that pissed off. In times past, that would have really keyed me up.
Despite my relative calm, my general belief is that people make mistakes and do damage all the time. I find that easy to forgive and forget. Deliberate harm or destruction is another matter. "I knew I was going to hurt you but I didn't care," will earn my eternal wrath. This is that category of event. I suppose made slightly less because I have no idea who did the deed. In short, the 'evil doer' had not pretended to be my friend first.
So, as I sat in my office, and thought of conjuring Andromulas the 72nd goetic spirit but then I immediately remembered the dual warnings of my HGA and mentor and decided against that idea. Not because it is out of my structure of ethics (it used to be) but because of prior warnings that such work is not good for me at this time.
I came home and literally forgot to tell My Gal about the incident. Then I open up my email and there is this stunning picture of my very expensive thing. I feel as if my listening to the warning was immediately rewarded by seeing a picture of my expensive thing four days ahead of schedule. I find it hard to believe there is a simple reward and punishment going on here. But, given that every time I take a step towards following what I hear from my HGA, something positive happens. In this case, it is reversed.

Previously, each time I took a step towards buying this thing there was a step toward promotion. This time, it was a positive life decision and a positive expensive thing experience occurred four days earlier than scheduled.
