Why do we get our best ideas when we are about to drop off to sleep!

And forget about them when we wake up?

Why when we start for an appointment on time, we are late by half an hour

And if we leave five minutes early, we have bushels of time to spare?

Why the day we wash the car, it is going to rain so hard and cover it in mud

And if we don’t wash it hoping it will rain to wash away the dirt, it doesn’t?

Why when we want to cook something special for someone special

It will be quite a failure in the departments of taste and looks

And a meal cooked in fifteen minutes, comes out looking like cordon bleu?

A special day, a special occasion and doing the best we can to look dazzling

Turns out that the dress, chosen with care is unflattering

And after hours spend on the hair, it’s fallen flat!

Why the best laid plan of mice and men often go awry?


I am sure you must have experienced such incidents and have asked, Why?

Hope you will share some of your experiences in comments.

  2. I think when we are crunched for time things go right because we work best under pressure. It’s like you know someone’s coming over to visit and within 10 mins you clean your house better than when you take a whole day to do it.

    It’s something about pressure…ih, yeah, it’s makes diamondsπŸ’ŽπŸ’ŽπŸ’ŽπŸ˜‰

  3. All of these! And you can never think of the right response at the time. But the next day, you are all ready to say something extremely witty and the person isn’t there πŸ˜‚

  4. Welcome to the aggravating world of Murphy’s Law. This idiom says that whatever can go wrong will go wrong. And it may just be right. This isn’t because of some mysterious power the law possesses. In reality, it’s us who give Murphy’s Law relevance. When life goes well, little is made of it. After all, we expect that things should work out in our favor. But when things go badly, we look for reasons.
