I often call myself unlucky. I very rarely win contests, and I’ve gotten in more freak accidents than anyone I know. I’ve never come close to being injured by a toilet, although I did drop my phone in once.

I don’t have an athletic bone in my body, but I’m more likely to win an Olympic medal than die from not using the bathroom. I usually need bumpers when I go bowling, so it’s pretty hilarious to learn that it’s more likely to bowl a perfect game over finding a pearl in an oyster.
