So you think your luck is poxed.
Acting on the the advice of my doctor to walk for at least 30 minutes a day (It’s getting harder and harder to tell Doctors apart from Personal trainers these days)
I decided to lengthen my walk from the shops by returning home via the local recreation park. Having been told by the doc that my taking an occasional pinch of snuff was a bad idea – I was trying to open a TicTacs container as I walked along the path through the park.
This was proving difficult because of the gout in the fingers of my left hand, I finally got it to open, but not without spilling a dozen or so onto the muddy grass.
Cursing this occurence, I heard a whooshing sound coming from the branches of one of the trees overhanging the path and a dollop of birdshit went straight through the opening of the TicTac box. And you know how small that is.
I rest my case.
