My distributor needs to be replaced, and it costs $500-- exactly what I was willing to spend (vs. giving up and getting a new car)
My car died in traffic, and yet I coasted into a safe corner parking lot, right next to a policeman.
My car broke down in Schenectady, and not enroute to Florida.
Roadside assistance took 2 hours instead of half an hour (hello, black Friday), but the sun was shining and I didn't freeze.
I am the luckiest girl in the world.
There's gotta be a word for this kind of luck...
Shitten luck*. Yes, shitten luck IS good luck, indeed!
Seriously, though, I'm very blessed, all things considered :)
* It's archaic, but it does actually mean good luck. I can find no other word quite as appropriate right now!
