Untitled - Undated
By, Xim Xom
I used to carry a lucky rabbit foot in my pocket for good luck.
But then I got hit by a water balloon that just so happened to be falling from the top of the Empire State Building as I was walking by.
All my life, I'd heard that objects dropped from that high reach terminal velocity and cause serious damage.
Pennies dropped by mischievous tourists can go through people's skulls like a hot knife through butter.
That didn't happen to me.
I just got wet.
But it was pretty bad luck all the same.
