"Murphy's Law" In its simplest form, Murphy's Law states "If anything can go wrong, it will."
Good morning. Tis gray outside this morning and it has been raining a bit off and on. We should have some sunshine later on and temps in the low seventies. Rather a nice day.
Yesterday turned out to be a day I'd rather not repeat. It was my grocery delivery day. Well, that's what it was supposed to be. A little after ten a.m. the delivery car arrived. With only five items out of the forty six that I had ordered. The whole thing had to be sent back to the store.
I called the store and spoke to someone acting as manager for the day. (It was the manager's day off) I explained the problem and he said he would take care of it right away. Soon, the delivery car came back with a lot of groceries. After the driver left, I went through everything and put it all away, making a list of everything that was still missing.
Another phone call to the store, and I named all the missing items to the "manager" who (once again) said he would take care of it right away. In a while, the delivery person showed up again with the rest of the groceries. By the time everything was put away, I had already done a whole days work and was exhausted.
Deanne and I had originally planned to go out and enjoy an ice cream sundae after she got out of work, but now I was just too tired to go. This should be the end of this saga, but it isn't.
At 8:25 p.m., another delivery car showed up with groceries. I told the driver that I had already received my order earlier in the day, and she left to take it all back to the store. I really felt bad for her, but I wasn't up to starting this whole shebang over again.
"shebang (SHa'baNG), noun, a matter, operation or set of circumstances" per dictionary.
Sadly, I did not do any crocheting yesterday. However, today is a new day and I intend to put a few rows on each of my projects. I'm also going to make some egg salad to enjoy later. I have and Egg Pod that I want to try out.
