Challenge #04034-K016: Balanced Beloved

I've a powerful case of good luck, my poor spouse has a severe case of bad luck. Together, we balance each other out and have a good, if not always peaceful, life. -- The New Guy

Do you know what a Lucker is? I bet a lot of people think it's the people who have insanely good luck. The people who have the cheat codes to the universe, if you will. It's not always that way. There are those who have good luck, like me, but you have to understand that there is a kind of balance to the cosmos. For all the good luck, there is bad luck to match it.

What is fortunate for one can be unfortunate for another.

There's some Luckers who have to live in padded houses on a planet of their own because of everything that happens to them. Thank the Powers That Be that my beloved and I are not that extreme. Little slices of serendipity without much in the way of corollary damage. Think... winning a little bit more than you spend on a lottery ticket kind of good luck. And... serendipity plays its jokes from time to time.
