The officers of the Graduate and Professional Student Senate (GPSS) had a happy hour at McCormick and Schmick’s in downtown. McCormick and Schmick’s is a great seafood place and has the best two dollar happy hour any where in Seattle. On Tuesdays they have a wonderful promotional activity – if you order the beer of the day, you enter in a raffle where you can win t-shirts or Mariners tickets to that nights game. We had been drinking for a while, ordering appetizers, and then it became time for the raffle.

The announcer called out saying the first drawing would be for a woman’s t-shirt. He shouted out, 8 – 1 – 3. Being slightly buzzed, from the beer, I did not realize at first that I had won. The waitress came over with three different t-shirts and said that I could exchange mine for a men’s shirt. The she asked if I wanted the Mariner’s tickets. I quickly said yes.

It was a beautiful Seattle night. The temperature was around 75 degrees and there was not a cloud in sight. Seattle went on to lose the game that night but I could not help but thinking about my lucky good fortune.
