A ‘lucky’ day

When people say they are ‘lucky’, it’s usually a good thing, like winning a lottery. But I’ve always wondered, what about bad luck? Isn’t that luck too? By that logic, someone who is truly ‘lucky’ would have had both good luck and bad luck intertwined.

Like what happened to me a while ago.

Good luck – I rushed to train station and barely caught the train.

Bad luck – The train I caught was experiencing a disruption, so we had to take replacement buses.

Worse luck – The buses were there, but none of them were moving, and quite a large crowd had gathered waiting for those buses.

Worst luck – When the buses finally started operating, there were so many people I couldn’t squeeze in, so I had to stay behind and wait for the next bus.

Good luck – As the last bus left, we received news that the train was back on track, so we could just go back to the platform and wait for the train, which would be faster than taking a bus.

Bad luck – I was late to work anyway.

Good luck – It didn’t matter.

? luck – If I had missed the train, I could have skipped this confusing event completely.
