1 thought on “gambling luck

  1. Andrey, I just knew you’d come up with this very song. Man, I coulda bet my bottom dollar on that.

    Now, here’s my two cents:

    “Lady Luck” is the personification of fortune, whether good or bad. (Sometimes spelled in lowercase.)

    “I hope lady luck is on my side going into this job interview!”

    “Tough luck” is something that is typically used to say you are NOT sympathetic to someones problems or complaints.

    If you dont like the way we run things in this company, tough luck. Youre free to leave.
