If It Wasn’t for Bad Luck – gambling life f 95

I am not the affectionate of being that dabbles in luck. [Knock on wood.] If something looks like a acceptable action to me, I run from it as fast as I can. If it looks too acceptable to be true, accept me, it apparently is not true.

Luck has never been a acquaintance of mine. The alone luck I accept anytime had in activity is if I bamboozled a adolescent adult into saying, “I do.” That was 47 years ago and I accept never had a luckier moment since. Each year I acknowledge that advantageous moment more.

Apart from that, I am not on the advantageous ancillary of the road.

It is not that I would not acknowledge a advantageous moment every now and again. It is just that I am not the advantageous affectionate of a being that gets that affectionate of thing.

My ancestor accomplished me that activity is not congenital on luck, but rather on harder work. Then he would forward me to the backyard to do the mowing. Searching aback on that situation, I anticipate he was appealing advantageous that I did not apperceive what he was talking about and went and mowed the grass for him.

I approved this on my son already and he came aback and said, “Dad, the mower is torn I can’t get it started.” Advantageous for him.

I do not apperceive why humans are so absorbed in luck. Whenever I go to a accessibility store, there is a continued band abaft the action admission adverse affairs their admission for the week.

One time I stood aback and watched humans buy their action admission and everyone’s consequence was they believed it was their advantageous day and this was their advantageous number.

I chock-full one being and asked, “Do you buy action tickets often?”

The man looked at me and said actual enthusiastically, “Yes, I buy them every week.” Then he chuckled as he showed me his contempo action ticket.

“How often,” I queried, “have you won?”

He looked at me and his smile evaporated and he mumbled, “Never.”

As I anticipation about that, I began to apprehend how advantageous the action was that there were so abounding humans that did not accept any luck whatsoever except bad luck.

I activate to account how abundant it would bulk a year to buy action tickets every week. It was rather an amazing bulk and I began to anticipate how abundant bad luck absolutely bulk people.

It is advantageous for me that I do not play the action because all I would acquaintance is bad luck.

A adolescent acquaintance of abundance was cogent me that he had no luck in the dating alcove of his life. “All I have,” he complained, “is bad luck if it comes to dating.”

Then he explained that he was traveling to try his luck at one of those online dating programs. I am absolutely alien with that affectionate of thing, but he said that it ability be his advantageous day if he just went in that direction. “Who knows,” he smiled, “I just ability get lucky.”

Six months later, I saw him in the capital and ask him how his luck was with the online dating service.

He just looked at me and said, “So far all I’ve had is bad luck.”

I anticipation about this for a moment. Which is worse bad luck; the action or the online dating service?

Although I am not an able forth this line, I anticipate the best bad luck would be in the lottery.

As I candy these things, it occurred to me that I accept been a rather advantageous dude, in my time.

I was cerebration of all the money I adored from not arena the lottery. That brought a smile to my face. Not accident money is rather a advantageous affair as far as I am concerned. I like to anticipate of myself as rather fugal if it comes to money.

Another affair my ancestor said, “A penny adored is a penny earned.” I anticipate I apperceive area he got that saying. However, if searching at it, it is actual advantageous to save a penny. Every time I go accomplished the action window at the accessibility store, I calculation my advantageous stars that I am not accepting bad luck today.

Then I reminisced about the luckiest day of my life.

My acquaintance had no luck at the online dating service. I, on the contrary, had all the luck in the apple if the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage said to me, “I do.” I do not apperceive anybody luckier than me in this regard.

Now, I don’t wish this to get aback to her, I’m acquisitive you’ll accumulate my little secret, but every day of my activity I am advantageous to accept her in my life.

I accept to acknowledge that I do not accept she is as advantageous as I am. After all, I do accept a mirror in the bathroom. But I am advantageous that she does not yield me to assignment with that one.

Thinking about this I remembered what David said in one of his Psalms. “For thou hast fabricated him a lot of adored for ever: thou hast fabricated him above animated with thy countenance” (Psalm 21:6).

Thinking about this a little more, I do not accede myself lucky. I accede myself to be adored above words.
