Array ( [sid] => 184988 [catid] => 1 [aid] => mick [title] => Murphy/'/s Law [time] => 2018-03-26 17:19:11 [hometext] => Hard to break murphy/'/s law. [bodytext] => I paid it off,
Then the warranty expired;
I finished running the marathon
But ran the wrong route required.

The box said “this side up, keep dry”,
But the contents were upside down and wet;
My toast fell out of my hands
Landing buttered side down—on the carpet!

Hey, I won the lottery!
My ticket was safe in my house that burned down;
I threw the ball on the opponent’s one-yard line,
But it was intercepted, could’ve had a touchdown.

I calculated four possible problems that could happen,
Then, working on the solution, a fifth problem developed;
I almost got the little ball to roll in the hole,
Then my elbow got bumped.

Today just can’t get any better!
So, I guess tomorrow will suck?
My car rear ended a loaded hearse,
No injuries but the dead guy was still out of luck.
That turned out okay,
‘Till I was sued by the dead guy’s estate, schmuck!

If it can go wrong it will go wrong if given the chance,
Possibilities, probabilities and never-ending circumstance.

And it’s just Murphy’s luck to get the blame - hehe. Good poetic list of things that can go wrong. Any day Murph can be avoided is a good day! Blessings.
