This morning I discovered that they had replaced the soap dispenser in the comfort station at work. The original one never worked, so this was a huge upgrade. Totally out of the blue, also. No inter-office memoranda circulated in advance of this change. No anti-bacterial task force was charged with selecting the vendor and product that would replace the faulty dispenser. I accepted this as a life lesson: allow yourself to be surprised by unexpected positive events.
This afternoon the new soap dispenser stopped working. I accepted this as well.
