55 - Charmed

His life seemed charmed. 
The right job was there when he needed it. 
People came into his life at just the right moment. 
Even when finances looked desperate, 
money would arrive. 
He felt like he had it all 
and it all led to this very moment in time. 
Now, all he could do was smile.

Cute set of sentences. Maybe add a final one: "And play the lottery."

G-Man said...

And you know...
He realizes that he's One Lucky Bastard!
I feel that way when I wake up in the morning.
Loved your insightful 55 MM.
Thanks for playing, and have a Kick Ass Week-End

I can't help thinking something horrible is just around the corner (but that's just my crazy way of thinking). A charmed life - would be fun to have it for while, wouldn't it?

Nothing is too bad if you can smile - as long as it isn't a demented one.

MorningAJ said...

Must be nice. Enjoy!

I'm up here.

the walking man said...

I have thought that was the way life was? Oh ye of little faith. (not you MM)

izzy said...

This would be nice! good optimism.
I question: shoe #2 -?

Caty said...

It is nice that he feels lucky even when times are desperate...that's a great attitude! :) I like this 55, MM

Christine said...

just purchased a hockey calendar hoping to win the 1000.00 draw, could you send some luck my way

Yvonne Osborne said...

And then the bottom drops out? Come on....nobody has it this good!

Mijayami said...

Lucky guy :)

hope said...

I went from Brian Miller to you and it hit me, "Is your fella sitting in the catbird seat?"

Sorry long day...about to get even longer. Have a great weekend!

Nara Malone said...

You remind me life is more charmed than I realize.Not always, but sometimes.

Alice Audrey said...

Charmed indeed. Kind of makes you want to kick him, doesn't it?

wcg1670 said...

ahhh yes...smile

fortune finds us when we are ready

Peace

Very lucky to be so charmed

hedgewitch said...

I kept waiting for the nasty twist at the end, but you played this one straight. And when you get lucky, it's good to enjoy it in at least 55 ways. On your WTH story--59 ain't old, and 29 is way too old to be purse-snatching for a living and unable to ride a bike. I also want to be part of the lady's fan club.

manicddaily said...

Like Hedgewitch I was waiting for the come-uppance. Though if all one does is smile==hmmmm...

And love pursesnatching! I once ran down some pickpockets! Got the wallet back!

(Don't know if I'd recommend it. They were not armed!)

good news then,
nothing could be better than such satisfaction in life.

yellowhousecafe said...

charming, just charming...but seriously, I wished him to end more of a statistic (like me) (smiles); a charming 55~

Katherine Krige said...

so appreciate those moments

point taken MM

razzamadazzle said...

That's the guy I can't stand, but he makes for a great 55!

Lydia said...

Wow, what an upbeat 55. I really needed its positive rays because I have had the flu for several days now (which is why I am late and have not read others' 55s) and your 55 made me feel better. So thanks. And thanks, too, for letting me know that my link over at Gs was messed up. I corrected it, and I really appreciate your perseverance so much.

happygirl said...

Thank you for the weekly challenge. I loved the ride. I'll miss this coaster being open to ride. :)
