Fall Fair

“I am glad I took the day off work,” said Unlucky Uncle Ungus to himself. “I am going to go to the fall fair. I love fairs so, this is going to be so much fun.”

Unlucky Uncle Ungus put his shoes on and just happened to look at the calendar on the wall.

“Oh dear!” exclaimed Unlucky Uncle Ungus. “It is Friday the 13th. Maybe I shouldn’t go!”

Unlucky Uncle Ungus thought for a minute. He always had bad luck but, he always had double the bad luck on Friday the 13th.”

“I am going to go,” said Unlucky Uncle Ungus. “After all, how much bad luck could I get into by going to the fall fair.”

Unlucky Uncle Ungus saw his umbrella sitting in the corner by the door. He was going to take it with him but, when he looked out the window, the sun was shining bright so, he left the umbrella where it was.

Unlucky Uncle Ungus arrived at the fair grounds and he saw the midway was a bustle of activity.

“This is so much fun,” said Unlucky Uncle Ungus, buying himself some cotton candy. “Oh look! It is the ferris wheel!”

Unlucky Uncle Ungus loved the ferris wheel. After his cotton candy was finished, he went over and was going to pay for a ride coupon.

“I am sorry sir,” said the clerk at the ticket booth. “Due to bad weather, we have to close the rides.”

“What bad weather?” asked Unlucky Uncle Ungus.

“That bad weather,” said the clerk, pointing to a huge black cloud that had just rolled in.

Unlucky Uncle Ungus didn’t have time to be disappointed. He ran to his car to get out of the path of the huge black cloud. He was soaking wet once he reached the car.

“Just another typical Friday the 13th for me,” said Unlucky Uncle Ungus, driving home. “Nothing but bad luck for me!”
