Murphy’s law

I have to blame Murphy…

The huge coffee stain on my new pants; the bloody scratch on my palm from hitting the pavement when I tried to break my fall; and my bruised ego after hitting the ground butt first in front of those teenagers who were walking to school that Monday morning.

Like that wasn’t bad enough, an old lady with a cane came up to me to help me up after my bum bounced off the sidewalk. I thanked her while trying to stifle an embarrassed whimper. How can the day get any worse?

My ordeal wasn’t over yet as I still had to walk quite a bit to get to the office. The walk of shame, with a little bit of pain, all the while I kept telling myself “I’m OK, I’m OK…”

“Anything that can go wrong will go wrong…” Murphy must’ve been a sad little kid to come up with that.

When I got to the office and switched my computer on, I saw the smiling faces of my nephews that I’ve put up as my desktop wallpaper. So despite the painful tailbone and the crushed self-esteem, I felt better.
