Free Bad Luck

This morning I once again tested the theory that computer keyboards don't like to have Coke poured on them. Just so you know, they don't. The guy at the Apple Store assured me that this nice new keyboard doesn't like any kind of beverages poured on it, so I didn't have to test it. That was good of him.

So, on my way to the store I was thinking about all of the mirrors that I broke in grad school. I was up to about 28 years of bad luck, due to balancing flimsy wall mirrors on paint cans. It will be interesting to see what happens in, let me think, 2020, when my bad luck should be used up. Anyway, thinking about that got me thinking that it would make an amusing little sculpture to hang a mirror on the wall, put a hammer on a pedestal next to the mirror, and label the whole business "Free Bad Luck".

But hey, who needs to spread that bad luck around? So I'll just let you make the sculpture in your head like I did a few minutes ago.
