You know how sometimes in a fairy tale,
the witch disguises herself as an old woman
and if you pass her without helping her on your quest,
then she'll curse you?
Well, I think I must have skipped past some old woman without seeing her.
Or, perhaps I accidently stepped on a frog prince?
Sat on a pixie?
Stepped on a four-leaf clover?
Ran over a black cat and a mirror in my car?
I've hit quite a string of bad luck.
My computer died. Completely.
My camera's broken. Frustratingly.
My new iPhone 4 has been stolen. Crushingly.
My car insurance increased exponentially.
That's bad luck, isn't it?
So, how to I make it stop?
Do I need to concoct a complex potion and drink it naked under a full moon?
Should I plant a tree and stop wearing shoes?
Should I stop and help every old woman I see, whether she needs it or not?
Maybe I should head to the animal shelter and adopt every black cat I can find!
And polish every mirror I pass...
I'm determined to turn this bad luck around.
