Bad luck is romantic, it’s full of soul and gave us Sylvia Plath. Good luck is a bit annoying, it’s full of chance and gave us Brad Pitt. I have no luck at bad luck, or at good luck, really. I have weird luck. Weird is a cheap word because it doesn’t really mean anything. But you usually know it when you see it, and you definitely know it when you smell it.
Weird luck is having three strangers compliment your hair in as many weeks. And two of them are developmentally disabled. And one of them was an elderly Albino woman.
Weird luck is going surfing and meeting a 400-pound man named Rob in the middle of the ocean. And he immediately decides to tell you he has cellulose disease. And that he was from Washington D.C., where he has 300-pounds of weed that he think he will get a half mil out of.
Weird is the least predictable of the lucks — and perhaps the most interesting. And definitely the most awkward.

Thank you for this! Hil-freakin-larious with a sting of truth.
Thank you!! Btw, your user name amuses me to no end!
There is though a lot to be said for Sylvia Plath, though little to say about bad luck, besides “shit that’s terrible”..I definitely think weird luck is good luck though – because it provides so much fodder with very little pain..;-)
Damn, but that weird luck is fun. Give me some.
I find if you open yourself up, it will find you
I have weird luck too. Stuff like that ALWAYS happens to me. It’s fun though!
Super fun! And a bit puzzling.
Most excellent! 🙂
nasty dude on a surf board! 300lbs of smoke? Don’t brag about it, prison bound!
He was just wading, who knows if anything he told us was true
The only order is chaos.
Physics has rules, explanations, and predictability?
I thought the chaos theory was a physics thing. Though, there us a solid chance I’m misplacing that as I have somehow never taken a physics class.
Oh, you may be right…my dad taught physics…but heard so much at home, I skipped it
500,000 / 300 = 1666.666666666667 sounds about right.
Good luck is annoying, because it either makes you think it will continue(which it wont) or you just wait for even worse bad luck that will offset it. I like to just mentally prescribe all my bad luck as weird luck, and work from that perspective.
Couldn’t Bill tell that you were a surf cop??!
I too have the “weird luck.” I have been told while measuring a bathroom (for work) that I remind this stranger of a Disney princess… I said thank you and retracted my tape measurer.
Now I know what to call this “luck” that keeps running into me
Ooooh I have weird luck. I have random people tell me the weirdest stuff lol
You had me at the mention of Sylvia Plath 🙂 You also made me flash back to high school, when I read it 😦
sounds like me. I never know how much anything is going to turn out. 🙂 Interesting post.
All luck is weird.
