I used to joke that I was an unlucky person. The past two weeks though have confirmed it for me. My unluckiness (I’m sure it’s a word!) seems to fall into two categories - 1) causing myself harm through clumsy behaviour 2) the universe conspiring against me during times that are the most inconvenient.
It started with me scraping my big toe under my bedroom door, which really really hurt. Then I sprained my ankle, collapsing to the ground in the middle of the road. This was with the same foot as the toe accident and my ankle still hurts now. Especially after dancing in high heels at a wedding I went to this weekend.
On the way to said wedding, unluckiness number 2 struck. I had to be at the wedding venue for a certain time obviously. I got on a train with a fellow guest with time alloted to check in at our B & B and get changed. Suddenly the train stopped. It stopped for an hour thanks to a broken down train in front of us. This meant we had exactly five minutes to get changed before we had to leave to get to the venue. I’ve never got dressed so quickly in my life! Thank God I’d done my hair and make up in the morning :) We arrived on time albeit rather flustered and managed to enjoy the day, particularly after the first glass of wine!
I don’t really bother entering competitions or playing the lottery thanks to my unlucky nature. I’m hoping one day my luck turns and I get 29 years worth in one go but until then, I need to avoid doors, crossing roads, catching trains and generally leaving the house as much as possible I think!
Am I the only unlucky one here? I need some unlucky stories to cheer me up please ;)
