When Running, Sh*t Happens


Shit Happens


Whenever you run, sh*t happens!  In my case, bird droppings.  That’s why they say that you should be thankful that horses or cows don’t fly.  Just image the mess when they drop something on you.

I was running around the park this morning when this happened.  The bird was probably on the electrical wire above me.  Of all the runners and walkers at that time, I was surprised to see something fell on my hands.  I was there at the wrong place at the wrong time.  I shouldn’t have overtaken that guy. This could have been for him.

Or maybe I was at the right place at the right time.  Some people believe that when a bird dropping lands on you, especially on the head, it means that good fortune is coming your way. And when they say good fortune, they mean a major sign of wealth.

Well, I hope the bird droppings I got earlier comes with a digit on what amount I should expect. Or a list of numbers that I can bet on a lottery ticket. Or a ticker in the stock market that I should invest in.

I kept on looking at it but there is no other sign. It’s just plain sh*t.

Sh*t happens but just keep on running. 😀
