...and some you lose.

Have you even known someone who is just lucky?

50/50 draws, empty licence bureau lineups, $20 dollar bills in a winter coat, "nope, no mold", "the branch missed the roof by this much", sold high, bought low, "can I take the next person in line?", lottery wins, starts on the first pull, "it turns out it's a first edition!" - you know, those kind of people?

This woman isn't one of them.

Sounds like something Monty Python would have thought up. To quote the hyenas in the Lion King... Poor unfortunate soul. Or... The series of books that Princess Courtney has always loved... A series of unfortunate events. But it really does make you realize that each day is a gift, not a right. Plant your butt (no matter how soft and flabby it lay be) in your favourite... Oh, say... MX 5 and let the breeze tossle whatever hair you may have left, turn up the tunes, and let 'er rip. The car, that is. Not the bean burrito.

That gave me goosebumps... pictured the Grim Reaper following that poor woman around until he finally got her.

Reminded me of the Final Destination movies. Cheat death but death keeps coming until it gets you! Bad luck though. Jeepers.

Oh, good lord. "Mentsch tracht, Gott lacht." I'm sure she can appreciate the irony, where she is now.
