Pure Luck

Let me preface this post by saying that I don't believe in luck. But I do believe that certain people end up in negative situations in an ongoing way through no real fault of their own. If you've ever seen the movie from the 80's "Pure Luck", with Martin Short and Danny Glover, you know what I'm talking about. And if you know me well enough, you would know that I am Martin Short's character personified. Why do I say this? Well, here's a perfect example. I bought my Subaru at the end of 2006. The weekend we were moving in April of 2007, my headgasket blew. So I was without a car for a bit. Get my car back. October 2007, a random flying tire from the other side of the freeway demolishes my car, and we possibly all could have died, given our close proximity to a cliff. Right before we move. Get my car back again. Today, as I was driving to pick up a pizza, as we're moving and I'm not in the mood to cook, I get in another accident.

Is my car "cursed"? Doomed to wreck or break every time we move? So far it has. Or am I "one of those people" that freak, random things always seem to happen to me? I just don't know. All I know is, I think I need a different car.
