A run of bad luck

by Jonathan Hill
Originally published by on 06/07/2013

My day started in a promising way as it was my birthday and I received some money. I bought some brightly coloured things. All was going well.

However, my luck soon changed.

Mid-morning, I received some bills which really deflated me. But then it got worse. I suddenly started having problems with the plumbing and electrics. There were too many bills to pay. Deflated, I realised I would have to take out a mortgage. In the end, I snapped and drove my car into a dog.

"Snakes and Ladders next time!" I shrieked, as my wife counted her fistful of money.
