(DISCLAIMER: This post is supposed to be an amusing post of the irony that comes into our lives. It is not a post of complaints. Things that make you shake your head and say ‘it would only happen to me’.)
There is a Law (a spoof on one of Newton’s Laws of Physics) called Murphy’s Law. This law states that: anything the can go wrong will go wrong.
The whole idea for this post came from this particular experience:
I was in a friend’s wedding over the weekend and exactly 10 minutes before the ceremony was to start, I ended up pouring water all over the front of my dress. I was not completely soaked…no, no…this was much worse. I managed to make it look like I had just pee’d myself. Excellent. To make matters worse, after the groom was walked up by his parents, I (and a groom’s man) were the first to walk up, which meant I either had to go up like that or try to dry it off.
(Here’s the dress:)
With the help of a fellow bridesmaid blotting my dress with a Kleenex, and the exclamations of “It’s not that bad!” and “It’s already drying!” from both her and the groom’s man that was walking me down my dress miraculously managed to dry with time to spare! And it wasn’t even noticeable! Whew!
I decided to try to think of other times that Murphy’s Law came into play (It’s harder than you think to go back and figure out times when this happened!):
It seems to be that the time you get a flat tire is either when you’re on your way somewhere and you’re already running late, or when you’re driving the 30 miles home from visiting family AND you have groceries in the car…not the packaged, non-perishable groceries, but the lettuce, fruit and pretty much the MOST perishable produce you could have bought.
A girl and her parents bring in their dogs for a few shots for the girls senior photos. We were told one of the dogs was skiddish and uncomfortable with new surroundings so not to make any loud noises, etc. So what happens? I lean a ladder against a wall and the ladder decides that now is the perfect moment for it to fall for the first time ever and comes slamming to ground but not before it makes all the noise it can and hits multiple things on its way down. Yep…only to me.
These few stories were the only ones that I could think of at the moment but I’m going to try to start keeping track of these things and hopefully this will be a long running topic!
