Blog-tober - Pandora's Law

Pandora's Law is a bit like Murphy's Law, which states, "Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong."

Though Pandora's law only seems to turn up on certain days - like full moons and Mondays.

Here are a few of my favourites.

The day that you wear a white t-shirt is the day you get invited out for and Indian lunch. (last week - still trying to get the butter chicken juice out)

The other day you wear a white shirt in the week is the day you have beetroot in your lunch. (Last Monday - thankfully put the t-shirt in to soak.

You will be seen by a random work mate just after you come out of spin class, when you are in lycra and you are sweaty and don't smell very good - not before when you have your over clothes on and your hair is not sticking to your scalp. (Tonight - ran into Glen Waverley at the supermarket)

The chance of running into somebody who you want to impress rises exponentially when you have a large ice cream cone in your hand. (Happened too often to remember)

The day your boss comes to work in a strop will always happen on the day the cat has woken you up multiple times in the night. (This has happened to me many times over the years)

Saying, "Nice doggie," at a pooch at the traffic lights will be greeted with a grown more often than the wag of the tail. (At least once a week)

The desire to ram the person who you let into the traffic in front of you rises exponentially when they don't wave a thank you at you. (At least once a week)

You can never, ever, outs tare a cat. Try it.

When it comes to men, all the good ones are taken. If they are not taken, there is a reason.

A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle. But even a fish needs a ride now and then...

"If men didn't have penises, we'd throw stones at them." (This is a Blarney-ism - but it has to be here)

The best way to find an inaccessible boss is to look at inappropriate content on the internet.

Failure is an option that comes mandatory with software.

The chance of your phone ringing rises exponentially when you are at the theatre and you've forgotten to switch it to silent.

That will do.

It's just the way of the world.

Two more days of this daily blogging to go. Then what will I do - other than give up any idea of becoming a journalist.

All very true observations, dear Pand!

Here's another: When you are doing your very ridiculous doggy voice or silly singing, someone WILL walk in on you. Ditto for a rumbling fart.

Far too many truths I recognise here.
You could perhaps also add - if you are trying to impress someone (for whatever reason) you will discover after the meeting that you had food stuck in your teeth.

Hi Pand,

Yup - I suffer from Pandora's Law but every single day.

"A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle. But even a fish needs a ride now and then..."

We're great - you'd miss us...

;-)
