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?

A Relevant Story (For Once.)
A few years back when I was still a teenager, GTA: Vice City was released on the PS2 in November, I think. As christmas was around the corner and due to the fact I was working my family expected to get presents off me. I really wanted the game, but decided to play the "good son" card and buy pressies.

Fast Forward to 2 weeks before christmas, was walking to a mate's house and for some unknown reason didn't cross the road at my usual spot, prefering to walk past the pub at the bottom of the road from me. Walking at the edge of its car-park I stop and glance down for some unknown reason. €50 staring me in the face. Look around, pick up note, walk on. 5 steps later, stop, look down. Another €50. Note joins its kin in pocket. Get to mate's house and while walking through town with his dogs later buy game in local video store. Still had €40 left over. Went to pub and got locked!
Still one of my favourite evenings EVER!
