And I always thought I was fairly UNlucky...

Yesterday I was out for a meal with some close friends, and one of them thanked me for bringing the sunshine out that day. I laughed... bemused, and asked what she meant.

She explained that if they were going out without me, it would've most likely been a horrible day, with bad weather etc etc. Now, although that is a ridiculous statement, because the day was as it was, it allowed me to look at my life a little differently. I mean, Apparently I am considered to be quite a lucky person.

A strange new perspective on my life, I must say, because I have always thought that I had shit luck. I'm fairly clumsy, and often break and spill things, I was in crippling debt for years, and I have had more than my fair share of knocks and bad/sad times.

This having been said.... I was in town today, painting my friend Richard's face pink and purple (as you do), and I received a phonecall.

Picking up my blackberry, and subsequently covering it in a pinky/purplish smear, I answered the call.


"Hi is that Mr. Patrick Currier?"

"Yes it is..."

"Excellent... well I am about to make your day!"

"How's that?"

"Well Patrick, this is Chris from Overture, the HiFi shop in town.... and I'm calling to tell you that you've won a pair of Linn Loud Speakers in our competition."

"!@* f´®u*!˚bç∆g©kj!^&!!!!!!!! THANKYOU THANKYOU THANKYOU!!!!"


"Um... I'll be down in a minute to pick them up."


So here they are:

I think probably everyone thinks they have bad luck.... either that or I've just been really ignorant for a long time about all the wonderful things that life gives me.

In either case, whether my luck has changed, or if I've had it all along.... TODAY is a good day.
