Mr Lucky Bags
Stoke-on-Trent ST1 5NG
They say you make your own luck, but in fact you don’t. It is manufactured and bagged here on this industrial estate in Stoke-on-Trent.
The consignments of luck are delivered overnight by teams of black cats, guided by the light of the lucky stars.
The recipients tend not to notice these bags when they arrive, although people often remark on their absence. “My luck’s run out!” they say, or “No such luck!” This is when they give the secret signal to Mr Lucky Bags.
Mr Lucky Bags keeps a careful record every time people cross their fingers and makes sure his deliveries get to them eventually. Then people wake up and just know it’s going to be their lucky day!
None of this is true, of course; just a pleasant flight of fancy. Mr Lucky Bags actually makes bags of sweets for children.
But Mr Tweets is off to buy a lottery ticket just in case.
