Naturally we were thrilled with this largesse on the part of the Big Boy corporation, but it is hard to compare that to what happened to me yesterday. I went home for lunch because Lauren's dad was in town, and when I got back to the office I opened my Gmail account because my friend Phil in Spain had asked me to read a draft of a proposal he was writing for a tool company in Toledo, Ohio.
When I opened my mail account my eye immediately fell to a new message from Virgin Atlantic. I had entered a contest on their web site a couple of months ago, but no one ever wins those, right? They just take your email to market to you until you get frustrated and change it. Or maybe, sometimes, you might win?
I am happy to inform you that you are the winner of our Virgin Atlantic Flight Number Sweepstakes. You've won two round-trip Upper Class tickets on Virgin Atlantic Airways. Please see the full terms and conditions on our website --> virginatlantic.com/flights. Please call me at ------------ or reply via email and we can begin processing the documents for your prize.
Congratulations, and we look forward to welcoming you onboard soon!

Thanks Richard Branson! We're going to London! Did I mention that Virgin Atlantic is the best airline in the world? This really made my day, what a riot. Luck happens!
