You will recall the Bible Re-shelving incident that took place at the bookstore I work at. Well, last night I was graced with an in-person apology from the students who pulled the prank. Mr. Phaedron Rising and his partner-in-crime stopped by the store.
"Tall Penguin?" he asked.
"Yup, that's me," cluing in immediately to who he was.
He offered his sincere apologies for any inconvenience caused. As I told him, I owe him my thanks. Without this whole incident, I wouldn't have met many of you fine people here on my blog. I can't even enumerate the amazing things that have unfolded as a result of this Saturday afternoon prank.
This all makes me think that even the unexpected crazy bits of our life can change our lives for the better. And also reminds me that we never know how our actions will affect another. Much like the butterfly effect, each interaction we have with others can alter the trajectory of their life course. For better or for worse, we are all connected.
