1048. Oh! Lucky day!

There was no doubt that this was Homer Hamlen’s lucky day. There was no denying it.

First of all, his local supermarket phoned first thing in the morning to say he’d won the sparkling sports car because he was the lucky one who had purchased the secretly marked can of baked beans. He could pick the car up any time from town. It was a fabulous car. It could go from 0 to 110 in 10 seconds. What a lucky day! He would pick the car up after work.

His wife was so excited that she foolishly said he could have a dog. He’d always wanted a dog, and his wife had bickered about it for two years. Now she had excitedly relented. He knew exactly the breed of dog he wanted. It would be a Groenendael. In fact there was a breeder of Groenendaels quite local. He phoned. There was a puppy available! What a lucky lucky day! He would pick it up after work. The car first, and then the puppy.

When he arrived at work, his boss told him he’d got a promotion and a pay rise. A hefty one. Oh lucky lucky lucky day! Oh joy! Oh rapture! Oh lucky day!

After work he picked up his new car. The excitement! Then on the way to get his puppy, he ran into a power pole and was killed.

          Speaking of which – my next door neighbour (aged about 40) with five dogs (a rotweiller and 4 little yappy things) suddenly dropped dead about an hour ago. So there’s great consternation occurring outside my window.

                  Yes – but I hope Chelsea his partner gets rid of the Rottweiler as it charges the fence barring its teeth and half the time I’m too scared to go into the garden! He had it in the backyard anyway just to protect his marijuana plants which he won’t need any more.
