The stars on a clear night wink at me;
Congress has actually passed a good law;
my brother has not asked me for money;
the cherry blossoms are out in D.C.;
I won $10 on a scratch-off lottery ticket;
my class went well;
a friend loved the book I recommended;
my boys are coming over for the holidays;
I planned a surprise party for my wife;
the weather has turned warmer;
my taxes are finished;
I saw a very funny movie on TV.

All this and more happens
when my beloved Mets win.

April, it appears, is not the cruelest month.
