I guess I’m not in control of my own destiny

Remember how yesterday I was going to leave work early and enjoy some sunshine?  Yeah…I shouldn’t have said it out loud.  The universe didn’t take it well.

“Oh, you want to leave early?  You’re a little frustrated with work?  Looking forward to some nice spring weather?  Need a break?  Oh, ha ha ha.  That’s so cute.  Tee hee.  That you should have such aspirations – oh, it’s too much.  Really.  Pardon me while I wipe away tears of hilarity.  Oh, ha.  Hum.  Hee.  YOU WILL BE PUNISHED.”

A three hour conference call began at 3pm.  I left work at 6:30.  I might need to placate the universe somehow.  I’m sorry!  I didn’t mean to offend!

Update: It JUST occurred to me that yesterday was April Fool’s Day.  Was this a cosmic joke?

    I think you nailed it. Speaking of cosmic jokes, JCPS cancelled schools again today. Corey called a little while ago to see if he could bring Gaby over. No snow–instead, floods. All the rain from yesterday and last night, along with L’ville’s inadequate sewer and drainage problems, has flooded all the low areas in and around the city. Cars are floating down some streets. On top of that, there’s a gigantic 5-alarm fire at GE’s appliance park–so big it’s showing up on weather radar as a storm. We can see the huge, thick black plume from our house. On the eve of Passover, I’m wondering what next? Boils, frogs, pestilence….?
