Tempting fate!

Watering the lawn, washing the car or doing laundry is tempting fate to rain that day

Saying things are going well is indeed tempting fate to make them go awry

Saying that you never lose your way is definitely a challenge to the fate to make you get lost and waste hours of precious time

Don’t challenge Murphy to mess up your day, so even if you want to brag about something, do it very quietly in your mind!


Wednesday Thoughts, is a new challenge hosted by Jim. This is a challenge where you can do what you want to do, or be what you want to be, but you are encouraged to use the theme which is “tempting fate” for this week and write a poem or a story, or whatever you like.

  1. “… the original Murphys law? …proclaimed, “If there are two or more ways to do something and one of those results in a catastrophe, then someone will do it that way”. This is the true and original form of Murphy’s Law.”

    I thought when I went looking I might find out who poor Murphy was… but not quite.

    Kind of like superstitions – which I know some label ‘stupid-stions’ – but really who wants to tempt the Fates”
