So Close…

I got a phone call from my dad while I was at the office. Apparently, his email was down for a day or two and it just came back today at around lunch time. Normally, I’d expect a phone call when the email goes down, not when it comes back. Today, though, he called to tell me about a message that had been sitting, inaccessible, on the Verizon POP server.

I’m paraphrasing here, because I didn’t have pen and paper handy at the time: “Congratulations! Your entry was selected and you are eligible to purchase 4 tickets for Green Monster seats at 1 Red Sox game this season. To complete your purchase, log on to between 10 AM and 11 PM on Tuesday, March 30…”

After getting off the phone, I promptly went off and found a wall against which I could repeatedly bang my head.
