This is a question Unexpected Good Fortune

Travelling through Seattle a good 15 years ago, I remembered an old friend I used to blow up Action Men with. We were bored, nothing to lose , so I looked him up in the phonebook. He was the only one of that name in there. "Come and stay," goes he.

Me and my mates were living in a car at that point so a bed was a novelty. After searching for a while, we rock up to a very posh mansion on Puget Sound with its own Helipad. "Come flying," goes he.

Has your luck held out recently?

QOTW can cause good fortune
When I first read the topic of this weeks Question last Sunday, I thought "Shit it, nothing fortuitous has happened to me recently, expected or otherwise."

After casually scanning a few stories, I promptly buggered off down the pub to get semi-shitted. On the way homw,I stopped at a local food emporium. Having placed my order, I went outside for a pish, came back in a couple minutes later. The guy behind the counter hands me my food, says goodbye then disappears through the back, without actually asking me to pay for it. I swiftly turn on my heels and fuck off out it, clutching my gratis Chicken Tikka pakora.

The next time I looked through some more of this weeks stories was yesterday afternoon, killing some time just before I left work. On the way home, I stopped at Sainsbury to buy a belt. Price tag said 8.00, but when the girl scanned it through the till, it went through at 50p. Of course, rather than think something might be amiss and question the price, she happily accepted my proffered 50p, and, once again, off I fucked, happy in the knowledge that reading this QOTW had directly resulted in good fortune.

Although, after reading a bit more today, I have to report that the free pakora has given me such severe stomach pain, that I am now off to hang myself with my 50p belt. Ah well, you can't win all the time.

Apologies for length of belt, its not quite enough to reach aroung the ceiling beams
