A to Z challenge W for Why

Personal experiences, incidents and smiles

Why?

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?

Why?

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

This poem is a re-share as I wrote in three years back!

Hope you will share some of your experiences in comments.

  1. I often ask these questions too 🤣. I often think of Sod’s law or more commonly, Murphy’s Law which states that if it is possible for something to go wrong, it will go wrong. Not that I really understand this law 🤷🏼‍♂️. Great blog post!

  2. I’ve experienced these too. My favorite to say to my students was one I heard very long ago.
    Why is it when I study for a test it is easy and when I don’t the teacher makes it hard?

  3. Oh, yes, excellent reflections, Sadje. My favorite is when I have all the time in the world and my hair doesn’t cooperate, yet when I am running late, it just does itself. Weird, and ultimately helpful! 🤣😅

            1. No worries my dear, it was a long time ago. I was more than compensated by having a very loving and caring father. And later on my mother in law was a very kind woman. Thanks 🙏🏼

  4. An old man turned ninety-eight
    He won the lottery, and died the next day
    It’s a black fly in your Chardonnay
    It’s a death row pardon two minutes too late

    And isn’t it ironic?
    Don’t you think?

    It’s like rain on your wedding day
    It’s a free ride when you’ve already paid
    It’s the good advice that you just didn’t take
    And who would’ve thought? It figures

    Mr. Play-It-Safe was afraid to fly
    He packed his suitcase and kissed his kids goodbye
    He waited his whole damn life to take that flight
    And as the plane crashed down
    He thought, “Well, isn’t this nice?”

    And isn’t it ironic?
    Don’t you think?

    It’s like rain on your wedding day
    It’s a free ride when you’ve already paid
    It’s the good advice that you just didn’t take
    And who would’ve thought? It figures

    Well, life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
    When you think everything’s okay and everything’s going right
    And life has a funny way of helping you out
    When you think everything’s gone wrong
    And everything blows up in your face

    It’s a traffic jam when you’re already late
    A “No smoking” sign on your cigarette break
    It’s like ten thousand spoons when all you need is a knife
    It’s meeting the man of my dreams
    And then meeting his beautiful wife

    And isn’t it ironic?
    Don’t you think?
    A little too ironic
    And yeah, I really do think

    It’s like rain on your wedding day
    It’s a free ride when you’ve already paid
    It’s the good advice that you just didn’t take
    And who would’ve thought? It figures

    And yeah, life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
    And life has a funny, funny way of helping you out
    Helping you out.
