I had a bit of good luck on the trip I just took to the Bay Area, outside of the fact that my meeting went well. I got bumped to first class on both the outbound and return flights; I'm an MVP mileage club member for Alaska Airlines and have had premier frequent flier status on various airlines for years, but I've never been upgraded before, let alone twice on one trip. It's a short flight, but first class is still nice.
I also had my rental car upgraded to a Mustang convertible. I've always had a huge soft spot for Mustangs, and I love convertibles. I also really like the new body style and have wanted to drive one for a while. As it turns out, it's still a squishy American car, but it was great to buzz around in a convertible under the sunny California skies. And, it beat the heck out of the boring sedans I normally wind up with.
I'm not sure what I did to merit this luck, but I'm happy to have had these small bits of good fortune to make the travel a little nicer.
