Good Luck ? Really ?

This past weekend, Danny and I returned to Monterey, CA to celebrate our one-year wedding anniversary.

We loaded up our bicycles and biked the stunningly beautiful beach portion of the 17-mile drive. We walked around Cannery Row. We went back to Lover's Point, the gorgeous setting where we said our vows in front of our closest family and friends. And we made reservations at the Chart House restaurant, where our reception was held - the most awesome steakhouse, with superb food and stunning, sweeping bay views.

Walking towards Chart House, hand in hand, we were dressed to the nines. It was a fancy place, and this was a very important celebration. We were almost to our destination, when I heard a smacking sound from above. And then, something hit me.

It was bird shit.

Yes, that is right. I got shit on by a wayward bird, splattered when the shit hit the power lines above me, all down my shoulder and some in my hair, while on the way to celebrate our first anniversary.

Some say that it is good luck to get crapped on by a bird, but I wasn't feeling fortunate at that particular moment. I raced to the bathroom of the restaurant, and soaked myself with soap and water, removing the nasty, stinky excrement from my fancy blouse and hair.

Problem solved, and we had a lovely dinner, with the best filet mignon we have ever tasted in our lives. Plus a heavenly lava cake dessert, given to us for free by the restaurant staff.

The celebration of the beginning our lives together was well worth the bombing outside of the restaurant. I am just hoping against hope that the bird poop good luck charm lasts for a lifetime, and does not need to be renewed every year.
