Writing Prompt: Seven Years Bad Luck

I dropped a beautiful tortoise shell antique hand mirror that was a gift and my first reaction was to worry about whether or not I had jinxed myself. Fortunately, when I lifted the mirror, it was undamaged. 

Write a short story about someone who has a terrible run of luck. Try to make it funny as well as tragic. How does the person react to his or her misfortune. How do others react to what is happening?
