Every person in the world knows what it”s like to just miss the mark. Maybe you got to McDonald”s at 10:35 AM, so you won”t get breakfast. Or maybe your DVR cuts off the last few minutes of your favorite reality TV show. Close calls can make anyone”s blood boil, when they leave you out in the cold.
Like most things in life, though, close calls can be a two-sided coin.
These examples prove that sometimes it”s better, and even life-saving, to juuuust barely miss something.
