Default One of THOSE Days...

It all started so innocuously this morning. I had finished a decent workout at the YMCA and had headed for the locker room and a shower. I had just gotten lathered up when the fire alarm sounded followed by an announcement that this was not a test and the please evacuate the building. Fortunately I was able to towel off on my way to my locker and was able to grab my pants and shirt. Everything else stayed behind.

Did I mention I was the only one taking a shower at that time?

The firemen soon arrived and swept the building. Just a malfunctioning sensor. We re-entered the building after receiving the all clear and I proceeded to finish my shower.

But I did learn a valuable lesson today: A towel can only dry one thing per day. It was a pretty uncomfortable drive home.

Anyone else ever have a day like this one?

Constantly. That's why I had a "Murphy's Law" page-a-day calendar once. It was a reminder that I'm not the only one trying to prove Chaos Theory. The universe does it on a daily basis.

What great good fortune, Monty. That this should happen to you in June instead of February.

Monty, it must have seemed like the worst day of your life at the time! However, it will remain a wonderfully entertaining story for many years to come. Thank goodness you were able to grab some basic clothes on the way out.

The closest I can come to it was the day, almost 30 years ago, when I had to take my cat (Isis) to be euthanized. I wanted to bury her in my garden, so I brought her back home. We were somewhat poorer in those days, and my cat-carrier was basically a big red and white striped box with vents. Needless to say, I had been crying quite a bit. I arrived home and my next-door neighbors were outside. I gathered up my cat-carrier and got out of the car. George immediately realized that I was very upset, but Liz (who is from Scotland) shouted across the street in her heavily burred Scottish accent, "Beth, how good of you to buy Kentucky fried chicken for the whole neighborhood" ...while George was madly trying to shush her! As soon as Liz realized what was actually going she felt terrible. George felt so guilty that he insisted on digging the grave for me.
It wasn't a funny incident at the time, but over the years that story has provided a lot of belly-laughs for my friends and family, and also for theirs!
