The Luckiest Girl in all the World

While walking from the bus stop to the office just now, a pigeon pooped on my head. Some cultures consider this to be good luck but 1) Ick, I just touched pigeon poop and 2) I think those cultures are just trying to make themselves feel better about being pooped on.

Almost immediately following, I was doused by an errant sprinkler head.

I hold no great hopes for the enjoyment quotient contained within the rest of my day.

You are lucky!!!

Hopefully it is a GOOD omen for the rest of the day.

Did the errant sprinker at least wash off some of the poop? I think that it's all uphill from here. Stay away from construction scaffoldings, though (just in case)...

Over in my neck of the woods, they sell hats on the boardwalk with faux pigeon poop on them.

When I was about 9 years old, I was riding my bike and a bird flew over me and pooped on my bare leg (I had shorts on). My reaction was to scream and I promptly fell off my bike. I would have much rather had the errant sprinkler!

If only being shat on by a flying bird did win you as much money as playing the lottery! Hopefully your streak of weird luck has passed!

Ew. Mel beat me to the comments I was going to make. (Well, I didn't think of the scaffolding.)

Wow. Add being savaged by a squirrel in a leather dress and you've had a full day.

Hope it got better.
