At this point, all I can do is laugh

Joe claims to have bad luck.  He picks up every penny he sees because the one time he didn’t, he had the worst day of his life.  Even with all the penny collecting, he is screwed by the universe on a regular basis. I might have inherited this bad luck when we married.   Does luck work that way?  I don’t know because I don’t believe in “luck.”  Things happen and it doesn’t matter who you are, it’s all random, yada yada.

I’m sure you’re wondering by now why the hell I’m babbling on about luck.  Well, I guess it’s time I broke the news to you.  I’ll try to go gently, as Jack’s daycare provider tried to do when she informed me today that she is going back to school in August.  Yes, dear readers, apparently the third time was NOT a charm.  Either that, or Joe passed up a fucking penny on his way to work today.

    Sean is the luckiest person I know. I think this is because of a few things. First, he’s just plain lucky. He’s also really good at manifesting what he wants because he has a very strong will. He also actively believes in his own luck-powers, which may be the biggest element of all.

    Since we’ve been married, I’ve watched my own luck increase, and as I’ve believed in it more, I’ve gotten luckier and luckier. There may be nothing to it, and I am a very skeptical/cynical person, so it’s very hard for me to just believe in this sort of thing, but that’s how it’s gone.

    So, in the Seanic luck-system you guys are doing a couple things wrong. You’re believing Joe is unlucky, which is reinforcing his bad luck. You’re not believing in the power of luck (and the power of your belief in luck – woah, meta!). You are being affected by Joe’s luck-level, since you guys are a team/unit.

    Also, Sean doesn’t pick up pennies, he throws them. He believes that if you’re holding onto pennies, you’re blocking the flow of luck in the universe. Every time we get pennies in our change, we throw them on the ground outside for someone else to pick up.

    Ok, I just re-read this and it seems so flaky/hippy-dippy, but I swear it’s working for us.

  11. Wow, Katie. You are blowing my mind! You guys have really thought this through.

    When I showed Joe my post last night, he said, “You didn’t inherit my luck when you married me – bad things don’t happen to you. Jack got my bad luck genes.”

  13. Awww… I’m so sorry to hear that you’re having problems with daycare AGAIN. I don’t know what to tell you, other than if you decide to move to my city, Jack can come over and play with my cats when you need day care! 🙂
