A big hello to all of my readers today! Yes, I know I’m a bit late getting my post out today but some other things had to be done first today. I was hoping to get more reading done today as well, but, that also didn’t quite happen as planned, though I did visit a few of you earlier today and I will check in with more of you yet today. I was hoping to get a nice picture of the neighbors cherry tree today, but, it is a rather wet, rainy type day and the color just doesn’t show up the way it should. Perhaps tomorrow.
That fellow Murphy was certainly a smart person. Like those laws of his. Or whatever they are. Certainly fits me anyway. Doesn’t matter what it is, if I am doing something, there will be problems. Always happens. And at the worst times too. Like when I am in a hurry. Speaking of being in a hurry. I was late getting my supper. Picked up the pot of corn too quickly and the water splashed out. All over the stove. And the counter. And on my hand. And down my leg. On jeans I had just put on. And on my socks. Which, amazingly, I had only changed twice that day. And when it splashed on me, it was of course, quite hot. So I ended up jumping around and dropping the pot. Which just missed my foot. Which then spread the contents all over the floor. Which I then stepped on and went sliding. But amazingly didn’t fall.
Muffin decided to come and see if there was anything good to eat, but quickly realized there wasn’t and since I was still jumping around she decided to leave. And so my supper was a little late again and without my veggies. By the time the cleanup was finished my supper was not exactly hot anymore, and, and…sigh. Things happen to me all the time. One day I was taking apart an old desk. And the top fell on my head. Which made me lie down on the floor. Don’t ask how the top fell on my head. But it did. And it left a rather large lump. But the lump disappeared after a while. Things happen to me.
I inherited this from my Dad. He was very accident prone, as you all know, well, many of you know, except for my new readers. But you will soon find out too. So things just happen. All the time. Speaking of phones. One day I wanted to check on something about my phone. So I call their phone. But, of course, no people answer, just a machine, telling me to press the number for what I wanted. Except there was no number for what I wanted. So I pressed the number that I thought was close. I have done similar things before. So I should know better. Anyway, all I get is more choices. I press a number again. And I get more choices. I press a number again. And I get more choices. This is now getting annoying. But this time there is a number for an actual person. Great! A lady answers. I’m sorry, she says, this is the wrong department for that. So she tells me to go back to the main menu and start over. At which point I hung up. I was not about to go through that again. Sigh.
Surely things like this must happen to other people too. It can’t just be me. Or could it? Oh well. Livens up the day. And gives me something to write about. Sigh. Anyway, enjoy the remainder of your day and God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
