He has the absolute best luck of anyone I've ever met. Ever. The day he buys a lottery ticket is the day I'll start shopping for my dream home. It's uncanny, really, how fortunate he is.
He's the only person I know that could compose an entire senior portfolio in one night and still manage to get a passing score. He can speed down the highway at nearly 100mph and never get a ticket. He never ever makes a plan for anything, and yet everything always works out without a hitch. He hardly ever gets sick, and on the rare occasion that he does, it lasts no longer than a day. He once drove my car from my hometown to campus and back while the you're-about-to-run-out-of-gas-you-idiot light was on without running out and being stuck on the side of the road. He can ingest copious amounts of chocolate cake, oreos, ice cream, milk, pizza and tacos without gaining a single ounce. (I'm more than a little jealous of that particular talent.)
It gets even better, too. The following scenario is a typical example of Kyle's luck:
During my first semester on campus, while Kyle was still enrolled at Eastern with me, someone broke into my car and stole my stereo system. It kind of broke my heart a little. I lost some of my faith in people that day. That same night, someone broke into Kyle's car, but they didn't take anything. Instead they left him an iPod. Go figure. (He then turned the iPod in at the campus police station. He's too sweet for his own good. :] )
Yes, he leads a blessed life, and apparently being his fiancee gives me the privilege of siphoning off some of that luck. A phone call was made to my phone company this week in which my miserable case was pleaded. During this phone call it was discovered that a) Kyle's calls placed to me are free of charge. b) with an international calling plan (for only $5/month) the rate for my placed calls to Germany is only $.26/minute. and c) people will pull strings for a
So, my expenses have been reduced to less than a third of my previous total, and it's all being written off to the fact that Kyle, being Kyle and all, has wonderful luck. :) There are perks to my lonely situation.
On a completely unrelated note, I was checking out the Live Traffic Feed today and noticed this location: Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala. Never have I ever heard of this one before, and never will I ever be able to pronounce it. Anyhow, welcome Thiruvananthapuram-ian visitor! I'm glad you stopped by. :)
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
