You are soaking in the bath and your mobile rings. Five minutes after you have left home, the delivery guy comes with a package. You are single and have no luck, but once you are in a relationship someone declares their love for you. Work is quiet this week, but the moment you accept a big job other offers roll in. You are waiting for a few phone calls. They and two others ring while you are doing laps in the pool. No sooner have you handed in a difficult translation than you find the perfect reference material you needed online. We cannot control timing. Meeting people is also about timing.
