I don't really believe in luck or fate.
But it doesn't mean I won't tip my hat to it in times where, if it existed, it wouldn't hurt to have it on my side.
I had my neck surgery on 12/12/12 at 12pm.
I scheduled my back surgery for May 4th (As in "May the Fourth be with you").
About three weeks ago I made the call to cancel it. I left a voicemail.
The next day the surgeon's scheduler called to ask me if I could re-schedule it because the doctor had a conflict.
Basically, the fates didn't want me to have the surgery.
Today is May 5th and is a good day.
I'll take it.
