" . . . time and chance happen to them all"*

On Mondays and Thursdays, when Shacharit/Morning Service is longer because there's a Torah reading, I find it particularly challenging to get to work at a decent hour.

One day, I was lucky enough to get a bus and an express** train, and got to work at 9:06 AM.

Another day, I was not so lucky and, not seeing see a bus, I walked to the subway, then got a local, and arrived at work at 9:27 AM.

Yet another day, I got a bus, then a local, and got to work at 9:18. This is despite the fact that I left for work at the same time each day.

It's not fair. :)

*Kohelet/Ecclesiates, chapter 9, verse 11

**For the uninitiated, a local subway train stops at every station, whereas an express skips many of them.
