Friday the 13th

I meant to buy a scratch ticket
Someone else won the prize
I forgot to listen to the weather
and hail pellets the size of eggs
cascaded around me
I bought two pair of bell bottoms
just before skinny legs became the fashion
I won a black leather attaché case
the year I decided to carry a backpack.

You wrote about luck in a poetic way. The skinny jeans part, the backpack, the pellets the size of eggs..made me smile in great empathy.
