Luck is not on my side

by AW | Score: 4150

Raccoons are called trash pandas for a reason. I know this cause one of the little beasts screeched in my ear for stealing his precious packet of seeds. I couldn't hear anything in my left ear for a week but oh well. I think what I'm trying to say is that the universe actively hates me. If you tell me to "look on the bright side" I will punch you so hard that you will feel like a drunk roofer afterwards. It's not that I have bad luck, it's the fact that time actually stopped one day and the universe actually spoke to me saying that I was a scourge to the earth. Well okay, not the actual "universe" but just a speaking cat statue of a luck spirit. Helen B is what I call her and she is actually out to kill me. She can't do much but she really tries. Like when she almost dropped an air conditioning unit on me by undoing the screws, or unlocking the cage to the rhino exhibit while I am near the zoo. One day I actually got swarmed by a bunch of "curious astrologers" as they called themselves (which I have no idea if she actually did that or not). Helen uses small things to make my life miserable. Why? I am still trying to figure that out. She can't do bid things like make aliens attack earth (I hope) or make volcanoes come out of the earth.
