There is a time to every purpose under Heaven, right?
Take washing the car, for example. After misty, drizzly days, you are itching to wash the accumulated dirt and seeds and what-not that feels glued to the exterior. And the day after you wash your vehicle, it rains. That evul Murphy and his Laws strikes again. Sometimes plans don’t jive with Fate, and the efforts seem wasted. I prefer to think of it as an opportunity to learn.
And I tend to learn a lot. Over and over again, it seems.
Things Never To Do Out of Order
#5– Never wash your car if there is rain in the forecast
As alluded to before, even if you live in the desert, just learn to be patient and wait for endless sunny days.
#4– Never bathe your dog before taking him to the dog park
Hilarity will ensue after he discovers new scents into which to revel.
#3– Never try new cosmetics the day of an event
Redness and splotchy look great in commercials, but not in real life.
#2– Never take the newly-opened exit ramp
People are creatures of habit, and as such will STILL act like the ramp isn’t there for days afterwards.
#1– Never do your nails right before cleaning anything
Or gardening, or sewing, or laundering, or fill-in-the-blank. This is my Achilles heel and forever will be so until such time as I have either a full-time housekeeper, gardener, and cook, or I give up on having pretty nails.
I’m pretty sure the latter will win out 😀
