Luck, II September 3, 2006

Posted by caveblogem in luck or time, Other.

This quote from Douglas Coupland’s latest book, JPod:

<<Kaitlin said, “What a weird coincidence.  I should go out and buy a lottery ticket.”

“How come?”

“Any time you have a coincidence happen to you, it means you’ve entered a luck warp–for the next short while everything you do will be touched by it.”>>  (253)

The narrator’s character then decides to stop looking for a good flight to China and just show up at the airport hoping for something to turn up.  It does, another character booked him a first-class ticket.

So I’m not alone in thinking about this streak-of-luck business, I suppose.
