- Last night while she was replacing a new mouse for her bedroom light, she got an electric shock. Fortunately, she wasn't killed. She has a very lucky destiny.

- Are these sentences natural at all?

Thanks a lot to Teachers,

The sentences seem very natural to me.

I'm not sure that I've previously come across the collocation "a very lucky destiny," but it works for me.

I'm curious about the mouse-operated bedroom light. Maybe a new light for her bedroom mouse? Emotion: thinking

But the sentences read well.

- A.

Yes I too am bemused by "a mouse for her bedroom light". Also you would not replace a new mouse unless it were faulty. You would replace the old one with the new one, we would say "replacing" and it is taken as read.

"Last night while she was replacing the bulb in her bedroom light,............" (for example)
beoproShe has a very lucky destiny
This does not sound natural to my ear. I would simply say "She is very lucky"

Good point. How did I miss that?
I think people who are careless with their English (native speakers) sometimes use "replace" for "install."
(I was installing a new mouse.)
