Murphy’s Law

“I never had a slice of bread,
Particularly large and wide,
That did not fall upon the floor,
And always on the buttered side.”

I’m an optimist. Really. But what are the odds that in the days before packing up the family for Spring Break, we should have a big leak from the upstairs bathroom showering down on our dining room table, one garage door should break, a rare cougar is sighted making outdoor play nerve-wracking, and a woodpecker in a misplaced effort to attract a mate should start pecking on my metal chimney flu while I’m attempting to finish some writing deadlines?

This little ditty is one of the precursor’s to Murphy’s Law. History seems a bit murky on exactly who Murphy was but we all know whoever it was said, “Anything that can go wrong will go wrong.” It’s against my nature to think like that. So I will just add to my To Do list and count the hours until we’re whizzing away blissfully down the road (hopefully from a dry house with our sense of humor in tact!). Happy Spring Break!
