Default Lounge Thread #7000 (What moments of your life made you feel lucky?)

In honor of the lounge's 7000th thread, I present to you a simple question that should hopefully produce some interesting posts.

What are some moments of your life that have made you feel lucky?

That, and I won more than $100 in Vegas slot machines. I started from $6.

The first ever Yu-Gi-Oh! GX booster packs I ever bought had Elemental Hero Flame Wingman and Ancient Gear Golem. I'd say that was a pretty great day for me.

I felt lucky when I met you logi ^_^.

In truth, I've felt lucky when I won rock paper scissors in 3rd grade and got a map of Montana.

I also felt lucky getting Nintendoland for free with a 30 dollar Xenoblade.

I'd say my luckiest moment was when a professor had me switch sits. The kid she had me sit with was then my best friend for 4 years.

In general, I'm not a lucky person, but I wouldn't say I have bad luck either.

Probably when I was out of work for a couple of months and I replied for a (really good) job interview that was open for 6 months. They forgot to close it, but wanted to see me anyway. Didn't get the job.
Two weeks later I got a call again, another interview. Long story short, last month I celebrated one year employment!

I'm lucky because I'm still alive in this wretched world.

Fell over my bike twice going downhill on a street without managing to hit my head.

Walked in to gamestop to get The Last Story regular version, and the guy behind the counter decides to give me the limited edition with the artbook (the last copy there) for the same price for some reason. Good day, that.
