Is this a story or an article?
I am not sure whether this is a story or an article.
I am rational, I don't believe in ghosts or fairies at the bottom of the garden. I don't believe in luck either, it's just probabilities and possibilities BUT there are some people who undoubtedly receive more of their fair share of possibilities than others and I wonder if it has anything to do with quantum mechanics? Can they influence those tiny quantum particles to spin more in their direction?
My husband appears to "Know" things
He doesn't believe in ESP, though I would not class him as "rational" as me - he is much more of a gut feeling type person than me and I have learned to trust his gut feeling. For instance, when out driving, he might say to take the X route, whereas I might prefer the Y route but I have often found that the Y route has had delays or lots of traffic or has been in some way not good for driving that day. We don't have a satnav and he doesn't have a mobile phone of any kind, so he is not tuning in to any traffic forecasts - not on the radio waves anyway!
My Son in Law is "Lucky"
No matter the situation, he generally comes out of it smelling of roses or even well in pocket. He gambles occasionally and usually wins, Certainly he comes out ahead. If he is looking for a car, he finds one at a really good price, (practically give-away) with no work or only minor work needing done and if anything is going for free or at a good price, it just seems to fall into his lap.
Some people have "negative" luck
If it comes down to a choice between following my gut instinct or my husband's, I have found it better to follow his every time, which means perhaps that i ought to do the "opposite" of what I feel!
