There were about 20 tables set-up, we found seats with folks we know from camping here a lot. Once the meal is set and the prayer is said the table numbers are put in a hat and drawn out for the line-up order to try to be fair.
When we sat down I said something about being at table SEVEN, we would be lucky. The lady beside me said, "Nope, we will be the last called, I am the most unlucky person in the world."
Funny thing about the tables called, 19,8,12 etc. (No 7 called yet). When it gets down to 4 tables left, I say, "#7 can not be this unlucky we will not be last."
The call continued: 18, 13, 6...............Nothing!!!! There was no more numbers! Not a SEVEN in the hat! The lady said, "What did I tell you? Nobody is more unlucky than I." NOW I AM GOING TO TELL YOU, "I THINK SHE IS RIGHT!"
I am not an overly lucky guy (except in love), but I am very POSITIVE. I thought, 'my Positive attitude is going to override this ladies Negative attitude.' But with all the positive thoughts in the world, if your number is not in the hat, 'ain't no one gonna draw it.'
Sorta like I mentioned once here, A guy kept praying over and over that he would win the lottery, and finally God whispered to him, "Hey jack, help me out here, buy a ticket!"
Do you know a negative person?
