Question of the Day VII

posted by Momo Fali on January 3, 2011

You know how you enter a new year all starry-eyed and sure that things are going to be, at least, 20 times better than the year before, then right after the ball drops, your husband spills his glass of punch on your living room area rug, then your son spills sparkling grape juice all over himself, and then nine hours after that you take your husband’s car to the shop and it needs $500 in repairs, and then the shop calls back and says, “Whoops, we mean $700!”, and five hours after that you find out that your sister-in-law, who is also your dental hygienist, isn’t at the family get-together because she’s home with a vomiting virus, and she just happened to clean the teeth and floss the gums of every member of your family two days prior, and then you play in a poker tournament with 15 people where the top three players get paid, and you go out fourth, then you spend the first night of the new year not sleeping at all and on the second day of the new year your dog throws up all day?

Yeah, me too.

    Might as well get all the bad things out there and out of the way first so you can fill the rest of the year up with good stuff. 🙂

    damn woman, if it weren't for bad luck, you'd have none at all! hope it gets better!

  • Goober Daisy

    At least your dental hygienist isn't also your mother. I swear on everything I own that every time I go in there, she takes out 22 years of misbehavior on my molars.

    OH MY GOD. Well, let's hope that you had all of the badness you're going to get in 2011 already!

  • Tara R.

    You need a do-over for the start of the new year.
