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?

Ball tampering...
Went to see England v Pakistan in an one day game (*) at the Rose Bowl last week. We were right at the top of a double tier stand, about as far from the bar as it's possible to be. During the course of the day we had a few beers and got chatting to the two blokes in front. We got the usual "wow, you mean you like sport?" and "my daughter's about your age, she'd never come to a match" spiel, then they offered us a drink. We accepted a couple of beers off them, and carried on chatting. Half an hour later they get up and come back with more beers. This carries on for a couple of hours, until I insist that it's my round (I actually needed a piss, but what the hell). At that moment, one of the guys goes green, gags, and throws up right over the edge of the stand. His mate rolls his eyes, mutters "not again" and escorts him from the ground and we never see him again. Thus saving me three quid a pint for each of them which I could then spend on myself!

Good fortune, indeed. Though less so for the guy walking underneath the stand when the spew shower occured.

(*) That's a cricket match for any Americans reading. And England lost. Meh.
