"random" sucks!

In the past couple days, two things have happened that have convinced me that "random" has to be one of the scariest words in the English language.

1) Someone I know (an in-law of my sister) received a devastating diagnosis of a nerve disorder that may leave her paralyzed or partially paralyzed for the rest of her life. She's in her mid-thirties like me, and previous to this, healthy as a horse. The cause of the illness is unknown. Random.

2) A drunk man passed out at the wheel and ran his car smack through the wall of my friend's house. Yeah. THROUGH THE WALL. While they were home making dinner! No one was hurt (except the drunk driver, who, lets be honest, is an idiot of the highest degree and pretty much brought this on himself--not that we wish him to die or be in pain or anything but good lord man, what a MOE-RON). As you can imagine, the house is wrecked. There are no skid marks on the grass, the guy just plowed on through. This seems about as likely as a toilet flying out of the sky and landing on your car, doesn't it? totally Random.

You know, acquiring a few good luck charms kinda sounds like a good idea right about now...

Okay, there's one good reason to keep the ugly chain-link fence around our house.

You don't wanna that they told Charlotte she may still have ALS.
They will know this week for sure. I'm off to buy more rabbit feet keychains!

Oh, and whose house? Glad they weren't hurt ( I mean your friends, not the drunk guy)!
