Why Me?


At one time or another we all have experiences that seem unexplainable: ‘chance’ meetings; the ‘feeling’ that something is happening to a distant friend; a cancelled flight that ends in disaster; that we have been to a place before.

Things that some credit to God and others to ‘chance’.

Here is a story of one such individual, and how his almost constant brushes with ‘luck’ affect his life.

It will be difficult for any reader not to be reminded of events in his own past.


Then it seemed that his Grandfather’s voice appeared out of nowhere — funny, thought Charlie — every time Pa appears to me his image is a little less distinct; but his voice is as clear as ever!

“Christ Laddie! That’s a Hell of a lot of if’s! No real gambler would ever give odds on such a coincidence — and most certainly never a Scot!

“Charlie my lad — you are one lucky son-of-a-bitch! That’s the simple fact of it. Didn’t you see me on the beach shaking my head, trying to tell you what a foolish thing you were about to do?

“Don’t let it become a habit, Boy! You’re starting to rely on it! These things don’t for one minute say you have angels on your shoulder — and it sure as Hell doesn’t suggest you can pass any good luck on to your men.”
