I have heard the saying, “revenge is a dish best served cold,” many times over the years in both literary and proverbial form. This week I happened upon an occasion to see revenge in several forms take place that did not involve me in any way.
No pre-meditated vengeance on my part. No blood on my hands, just the satisfaction of a job well done.
Some definite “might have beens” hanging out in their heads.
Punctuated by congratulatory emails on which the other was copied.
Yes, I am happy about that.
Sometimes revenge happens best by doing the right thing and then letting karma play itself out.
