Quirk et al.An ironic or quasi-subjunctive use of should is current in certain Yiddishisms, especially in
I should talk. [I shouldn't talk!]
I should worry. [Why should I worry?]
I should be so lucky. [I'm unlucky.]
I do not think that is fine, not so in logical terms at least.If I wanted excitement, I should be so lucky having a surge of adrenaline now flowing in my veins.
