Dear Murphy’s Law,
You’re the master when it comes to teaching me what my shins are really for, mostly they’re for when the breaker pops at 0500.
And I have to trump outside to the breaker box (a sadist built our house) in the bracing, freeze your nose hairs into pointy little spikes chill, clad only in my non-thermal pj’s and armed with my cell as a flashlight.
I would’ve used the real flashlight, but then I’d have needed to see to find it. Thank you so much for clearing up the shin part though.
Seems like I had it all wrong.
And the thing you did, you know, with the unexpected guests arriving at bedtime the night before? Awesome work, I never saw it coming. Having them bear loads of laundry for the washer to rumba all night, gotta give you credit-that was a nice touch.
Oh and getting Duck riled up on sugar so he could chatter to his cousin?
Yeah that rocked.
The lack of sleep I got sure came in handy for pounding the anatomy lesson deep into my brain, I promise it’ll remain there.
But you had only warmed up, hadn’t you? Because today was nothing short of amazing.
I can imagine the picture I must’ve made, clad once more in my other pj’s that aren’t thermal either (because that lesson hadn’t been reinforced), sitting inside my less than year old car, key in the ignition and clutch engaged but no engine turning over.
Oh and staring at the dashboard. The non-lighting dashboard, I might add.
You really outdid yourself there. Because I’d have never even entertained the thought that you could cause the anti-theft system link to break (for no discernible reason the tech could find) locking the car into safety (non-drive mode).
One fell swoop and you effectively rendered us stuck without transportation on a school day, an important school day no less, you are a genius! How ever did you come up with that one?
You owe me for the tow and a finger by the way.
I’ll let you guess which finger.
Look Murph, I know it’s fun-for you-and I know that you and I will never see eye to eye on…well…everything, but could you lay off?
Maybe teach someone else some valuable life lessons? All that trauma in 2 days is enough to break anyone and I’m not anyone.
NaNoWriMo is on it’s last week and I’m whupped. I hope you understand.
In short, I hate your stinkin’ guts!
There, I said it.
Seriously, you ought to be ashamed of yourself. It’s not nice to play mind games with the head of an almost 40 year old chick with ADHD who can’t remember to tie her shoes on a normal day.
But I think I might be able to help. Here’s this list of people…
