Good Luck Bad Luck

Still pretty flat out at uni but ill leave you with this i found on a blog this morning

It got me thinking about Wendy, Wendy a friend of mine fell down a flight of stairs 2 weeks ago, seriously the whole flight !!

I wasn't there but apparently it was really frightening - glad i wasn't don't really need that kind of fright

Anyway i felt a bit rude as i kept telling Wendy how lucky that she was badly bruised and cut etc but that was all !!

No broken bones or anything serious and seeing as they were a flight of wooden stairs down to the hard wooden floor below she was BLOODY lucky. I guess its just the way i look at things but i just couldn't get past the fact that she was very lucky and all was good!!

Just me i guess ?


Good luck, bad luck
A father and his son owned a farm.
They did not have many animals, but they did own a horse.
One day the horse ran away.
“How terrible, what bad luck,” said the neighbours.
“Good luck, bad luck, who knows?” replied the farmer.
Several weeks later the horse returned, bringing with him four wild mares.
“What marvellous luck,” said the neighbours.
“Good luck, bad luck, who knows?” replied the farmer.
The son began to learn to ride the wild horses, but one day he was thrown and broke his leg.
“What bad luck,” said the neighbours.
“Good luck, bad luck, who knows?” replied the farmer.
The next week the army came to the village to take all the young men to war.
The farmer’s son was still disabled with his broken leg, so he was spared.
“Good luck, bad luck, who knows?”

How true............ it all depends on perspective (and sometimes hindsight!)

Same thing happened to me, only the stairs were concrete & I crashed into a wall at the bottom,lol! Looked hilarious...didn't break a thing & fortunately I have a fat arse but my feet have suffered from soft-tissue damage ever since & I have to have regular cortisone injections . So no broken bones doesn't necessarily mean no chronic problems unfortunately. Hope all your studying goes well ;-D
