Well, today is the luckiest day of the year! It's St. Patrick's Day!
I honestly don't believe in luck. To me, the word 'luck' could be a coincidence or a blessing. Sure, I use the word 'luck' probably more than I think but I don't really believe in it. It's kind of weird. XD
But today, I'm gonna use the word lucky a lot.
Since today is, as AJ calls it, Lucky Day, I thought I'd post some lucky stories. ;)
Enjoy my tales of woe and luck! :D

A couple of years ago, me and Koolest decided we wanted to buy rollerblades.
Spring had just come and memories from when we skated on ice in winter were fresh in our minds. We both enjoyed the thrill of going fast, your hair in the wind, moving your feet fast, going as fast as you could go.
Rollerblades would fix the problem of having to wait all the way until next winter to skate. We could skate pretty much all year!
So, off we went to the store. When we got there, we rushed to the section with rollerblades. There were these beautiful ones that had a little bit of blue on them. We each tried them on. They were amazing.
But, we decided to buy them in a week or so. (I don't remember why...)
When we came back, our dad made us check a few more out, just in case. We tried on black and red ones, built for taking on anything. They fit wonderfully.
We decided to buy them. But the lucky thing was, there on sale for an amazing price!

Just last year, me and Koolest were dogsitting an adorable dog, named Mocha. We loved her to pieces and she was so funny and sweet.
Every evening, we had to take her out for a bathroom break. So, we let her out in the backyard.
As we let Mocha go out in the yard, I watched her. She wandered a bit in the grass and then stopped. Curious, I moved my head so I could see behind the bush. I saw a rabbit.
Almost in slow motion, my mind thought, "Oh no! Mocha is gonna run after it!"
Sure enough, the bunny darted through a hole in the fence, just the right size for a bunny. And Mocha.
Mocha bolted after the bunny and paused slightly, her head peeking out hole.
"Mocha!!" me and Koolest yelled.
Ignoring us, she continued her chase and ran out of view.
I rushed up to the hole and peered through, looking for Mocha. I was hoping she'd be right there, waiting for me. No such luck.
Frantic, I whirled around to face Koolest. "Go get her treats and leash!" I yelled and ran as fast as I could to the front of the house. My feet pounding, I ran down the street a little and turned onto a sidewalk the ran along the houses next to Mocha's.
I reached the side of the house that was next to Mocha's and poked my head through the bushes.
There, standing calmly in the middle of her neighbor's backyard, was Mocha. Not caring that I was going on someone's private lawn, I dashed up to Mocha, swooped her up in my arms, and made it out of the yard in just a few seconds.
Still shaken, I walked down the sidewalk, holding Mocha and scolding her gently.
How lucky I was that she didn't run far or go onto a street.

This next story is a little longer but that doesn't mean boring.
One day, last year in summer, I was just chilling online with my friend, who on AJ goes by Fluffykittenlover17. My mind suddenly thought of a youth retreat I was going on in December with Koolest. It was going to be out of my country.
So I told my Fluffy about it. She asked where I was going. I told her. She then told me she was going to find a way to be there at the same time I was so we could meet. In real life.
At first, I laughed at the idea. How could it possibly work?
I went along with it. The more we talked about it and the closer it got to the date of the retreat, I was so excited. I wanted this to happen so bad.
In December, she asked again when I was going. I told her the 28th.
She was going to be going back to her home farther away on the 29th. We could only make this work on the day I arrived, the 28th.
The evening before I left, I was so panicked. We needed to know a certain time Fluffy could come to my hotel but I had no idea when we were arriving.
I told her a rough guess my mom had. I also told her which hotel I was staying at.
Going to bed that night, I was so panicking and crying. What if it didn't work?
The next morning, I tried to not think about how it could totally not work. As we got closer to the time I had told Fluffy, I felt so bad.
Finally, we reached the hotel. For some reason, the idea of meeting Fluffy went to the back of my mind as I hurried around, getting my room key and finding the hotel room. As soon as we dropped of our suitcases, me and Koolest rushed downstairs.
As I walked out into the lobby, I randomly glanced to the area where a couple of people were sitting in armchairs.
A girl turned around. We stared at each other. My legs felt like they were going to melt and my head felt like I was going to black out.
Now you see, I knew how Fluffy looked like. She knew how I looked like. But SEEING someone in real life is much much different than seeing someone in a picture online.
Fluffy got up and I walked over to her. We hugged for a long time. :)
Now THAT was more than luck. That was a pure miracle.
I'm so glad I got the chance to meet my awesome best friend from online.
