O`Hanlon – Round 23: ‘Unlucky’

Filed under: O`Hanlon — Tags: , , , — Mao @ 9:03 pm

Julie and Asia may have an unconventional marriage, but their lives are fairly normal otherwise.  Maggie is enjoying the last of her teen years before joining her older brother at B.S.U.

Unfortunately for Maggie, things don’t seem to be going too well.  Being a senior isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, it seems.  Sure, her life at school is going fine, but that’ll all be over soon, water under the bridge.  Right now, she’s stuck getting assaulted by their evil trash compactor!  She just wanted to help out and try to fix it.  She should have left it to Julie.  Maggie’s hobbies don’t necessarily include tinkering or jamming a screwdriver in the angry maw of a trash compactor.

It wasn’t just appliances Maggie had trouble with–boys also seemed to be a problem.  Maggie had it all going for her–looks, popularity, intelligence–but the boys didn’t seem to care.  Most of them were just too intimidated by her.  She came on too strong, too hard.  She was a good girl, she was just trying to broaden her horizons.  She wasn’t asking for marriage or anything!  Still, they shuffled off and avoided her like the plague.  Poor Maggie.

There was at least some bit of good news–their dog, Sansa, gave birth to three puppies!  Sandor, Catelyn, and Brienne all resembled their mother and were kept safely in the unused bedroom behind the garage.  Julie and Asia planned to give them away to any willing neighbors when the time came.

Maggie still wasn’t having much look with cooking, either.  Again, the fireman came to the rescue.  He was getting to know everyone in the house by now, especially Maggie.  He was older, but not too old, Maggie noticed with interest as she chatted him up.

“I know you probably think I’m an airhead,” she began, “but I’m not.  I’m really smart with books!  It’s just cooking that elludes me.”

It seems he heard this excuse a lot.  He simply laughed and nodded, “whatever you say, m’am.  Try not to burn the house down.”

It would seem he left his warning with the wrong resident!  Poor Julie suffered her own culinary disaster shortly after Maggie left for University.  Aang was just as puzzled by the roaring flames, unable to move.  Luckily, the fireman was still around and the damages were minimal.  At this point, it seemed a better notion to just hire a caterer… or order out for the rest of their lives.

Note from Mao: Nothing too crazy this round.  Poor Maggie, she really does have terrible luck.  Maybe it’ll improve in Uni.

  1. Hopefully, or maybe she’ll burn down the dorm/house they live in.

    Haha, Julie and Asia are more than capable cooks! No clue why Julie started a fire.

  2. Nothing too crazy… except the kitchen going up in flames! Can anyone in there cook? They just might have to order out for the rest of their lives.
    Awww, poor Maggie scares the boys away too. It’s okay, teen boys are a waste of time anyway.

    I was kind of shocked! Julie and Asia each have at least five cooking points. No clue why she started a fire!

  3. Poor Maggie! I think she just needs to stay away from ALL kitchen appliances. ;)

    LOL! She really does…

  4. Poor Maggie, such a pretty but unlucky girl.

    I’m hoping that changes in Uni!

  5. Oh, sweet crackers. Maggie is not domestic at all, is she? xD And poor Maggie. Those boys are so immature. Don’t you worry. You’ll find someone. Hopefully, he has culinary skills.

    LOL, it would seem not! Poor girl.

  6. Poor Maggie! Boys in studded leather vests are never a good idea anyway!

    LOL, very true.

  7. Sandor, Brienne, and Catelyn? The problem with this particular naming theme is that said names all prophesy some sort of doom, gloom, or other painful things.

    Hahaha, thank goodness they are only puppies and don’t have to worry about such things. ;)

  8. Aww, I love Maggie! :) I think she should call her fireman-dude out to a dorm fire (I’m sure she can manage one!) and see if they have any chemistry ;)

    The puppies are cute!

    That may just happen, but we’ll have to see. She did have a crush on James, too.

  9. Aww, poor Maggie, my heart goes out to her. She’s one of my definite favorites this generation, I can’t wait to see what she will grow up to be like. I see some serious potential in that firefighter gentleman – any chances of him reappearing in Maggie’s life once she’s a bit older?

    Haha, we’ll have to wait and see!
