. . . you get to one side of Wal-Mart and realize you’ve forgotten something all the way over on the other side? Or, even worse, you finally make your way to the front of the checkout line and only then notice an item on your list you overlooked?
. . . your hair looks great on the day you plan to clean the house but has a mind of its own when you have an important meeting scheduled?
. . . you only notice the coffee dribbles on your white shirt after you’ve gotten to work?
. . . two hours after lunch, you look in the mirror and notice something green between your teeth?
. . . you’re running late and then realize you forgot to fill up your car yesterday?
. . . you want a bowl of cereal and find out the milk’s gone sour?
. . . you try to slip on your favorite jeans and have to tug instead? (Surely it couldn’t have anything to do with how many desserts you had last week? And the pizza? The french fries?)
. . . what you really want to wear is still in the dirty clothes hamper?
. . . you’re in a hurry and everybody in front of you isn’t?
. . . in the middle of a dirty job, you realize that you need a particular item immediately, and so you run to the hardware store in your nasty clothes, sans make-up, hair in a sloppy pony tail, only to run into everyone you know?
. . . someone calls to see if you want to go out to eat and you’ve already started cooking?
. . . you can’t get the ketchup out of the bottle, so you pound and pound, and then it comes out and floods your plate?
. . . you choose the fast-moving line and then hear “Price Check!”?
. . . great looking shoes hurt your feet?
. . . the waiter says, “I’m sorry, ma’am, but we seem to have lost your order”?
OK. I'm getting on a roll here. I guess this is another subject we'll return to.
