Bad luck follows me

I'm feeling like a bit of a jinx today.

It occurred to me, after hearing about an employee being trampled to death at a Wal-Mart in Valley Stream, N.Y., on Friday, that I've shopped in the plaza where that store is located.

And that picture of me at the upper-left corner of my blog profile — the one with the baseball cap and sunglasses — was taken in a shopping mall parking lot in Palm Desert, Calif., almost directly across the street from the Toys 'R' Us store where two men were shot to death on Friday.

Moral of the story: Find out where I shop, then go somewhere else.
