I was coming home from the store earlier, and the car i was driving (a shitty loaner while mines getting her work done) was STRUCK BY FUCKING LIGHTENING!!! tires popped, battery fried- and my phone was at home. and if that had been my car it would be really not easy to get some of the parts that got ruined. that got me thinking... my 'weird luck' is a much discussed topic among those who know me best, but i always assumed this shit happens to everyone- but maybe not? lets see, i once had to chase a pack of coyotes out of my yard with a hand-tiller... a bum offered to split his earning with me (no strings attatched) when my wallet got stolen... another bum jumped in front of me a week or so later yelling " ive got blue ones, brown ones, pink and red ones- who wants to buy?!?' and all i could do is stand there, mouth agape, because it was late morning and in a part of town where bums just dont go! once, i was driving on a shitty spare with my best friend (who i call charlie- as in the unicorn- because shes just so normal and cautious but surrounded by crazies) and she asked if i was sure it was safe- so of course i go 'yeah- it will be fi- *bumpbumpbump.. hisssss*' total blowout. and instead of being totally screwed or psychos stopping to offer help (i really just need to glue a phone to my hand), a jeep full of army boys stop and just fix it. and she is just glaring at me sayin ' do you know how fucked i would have been if that was just me? REALLY FUCKED!' oh- and she and i went to a nice, quiet restaurant for her birthday (darn INTJ), and some drunken hipster dude stumbles out of the bathroom, SITS ON MY LAP and asks me if i had the fish tacos. i said no, because i hadnt, and he just goes 'oh. well dont." and walks out of the restaurant. can we say 'spectacle??' and these are just a few examples of the weirdness! so im just curious- does this happen to anyone else, or am i just living in some kind of fucked up sims-style thing here?
