if bad things happen in threes, i’m screwed
On Tuesday, for the first time in my life, I ran out of gas. Fortunately, I was only a couple of blocks from a filling station.
Tonight, my glasses fell into the toilet, another first. Fortunately, I had just flushed. Unfortunately, I was not at home.
That’s consistent with my luck. Totaled four cars, never been hurt. House burned down, lost only my books.
