He thinks he was lucky because it could had been his eye!!!

He also now calls it his luck weight.

I just confirms what I already believed about fishermen.

Depends whether you are pouring it in or drinking it out.

was in Mexico in Cancun in January and got the chance to go big game fishing on one of the high speed boats there, the ones with a big tower and arms that reach out each side,

was amazing and we were catching baraccuda and caught some pretty large ones, anyway we were moving on from one spot so i decided to sit at the front as we powered along at a fair old lick, one of the crew offered a fresh beer so i slid along the front of the boat and sliced my leg open on a metal fitting that had chaffed and gone razor sharp. sliced right at the top on the inside if you get my drift

bled all over the boat and fishing boats are not the cleanest of places to have such an open wound, anway back to the hospital and had 6 or 8 stitches, so did not consider that my lucky boat either....

but a point to consider ....watch any anchor holders or such items that may chaff over time so they dont get sharp and cause injury to you or your children

nearly lost the crown jewels....

Lucky?

I think this could be correctly called the story of the "lucky bra"!
