The miracle of the mixed-up checks

I've written a little about my grandmother before. In sum: she's crazy. My father grew up in an alcoholic, abusive home, and it wasn't from his father.

My parents help support my grandmother by sending her a check for a hundred dollars a month - a fact I'd never known until my mother sent me her check by mistake. So now Grandma and I are having to mail each other our respective checks. I took the chance to write her a short letter and stick it in the same envelope.

I told her about Ender, about the BFA, about work and school and all of the glory there is in my secretly glorious life. I told her that I love her. I don't think I've ever told her that before.

I get it, universe. I get it.

Sweet. Now all I need is for your mom to accidentally mail you the check intended for me, everything will have fallen into place.

Cue evil chuckle.

The Universe (or Uni, for short) and I have been more at peace recently, and your story made me happy. Way to go, Uni!

I had an "I get it universe" moment recently, too.

I don't know who you are, but the fact that you're a fellow Krebscout warms my heart!
