SoCS – Just My Luck

Continued thanks to Linda Hill who sponsors this lovely stream of consciousness every week. Every Friday she provides a new word to spark our minds into action.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “luck.” Use it any way you’d like. Enjoy!

Have you ever said that when something goes wrong? “That’s just my luck!” You might as well say “Everything that can go wrong will.” I wish people good luck a lot, but I am not sure that anything really happens because of luck.

Or how about this one: “Thank my lucky stars!” I’m not sure stars are lucky and if this was not SoCS I might look up the origin of that phrase. I guess that’s the phrase we might choose when things seem to go our way.

Did you ever watch Hee Haw? It was an American television show that featured country singers dressed in stereotypical denim and plaid dress. They had a segment in which this song was featured (I will come back and add it when I finish my stream of consciousness writing):

How about the phrase “The luck of the draw”? That implies chance to me so is luck just chance after all?

And what about that famous line by Clint Eastwood as Dirty Harry?

Uh uh. I know what you’re thinking. “Did he fire six shots or only five?” Well to tell you the truth in all this excitement I kinda lost track myself. But being this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world and would blow your head clean off, you’ve gotta ask yourself one question: “Do I feel lucky?” Well, do ya, punk?

That’s where my mind went today.

With any luck, someone will actually read this post and comment.

  1. The men with the jugs look a bit crazy!
    I often use the term ‘good luck’, or more usually the Londoner’s version, ‘Be lucky’. It is more a form of ‘goodbye’ in my case, and less about actually thinking the person will have any good luck.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. I love reading your memories as well as where your mind goes. As a frequent flyer in rabbit holes, I can actually follow them. When He Haw was on I always wondered if there were ever people as crazy as them in reality.
