Ever have a day that was just a bit strange?
Not necessarily in a bad way, though I'm sure someone without a sense of humor might find these things annoying,
but sometimes you have to laugh like when a stop light waits until you've come to a complete stop before turning green.
Sometimes it feels like it's doing that on purpose, like it gets a kick out of making you stop for a split second.
So I went to the store and had to use the facilities. When I went to wash my hands, the water didn't turn on. Well, I assumed that I didn't trigger the sensor and took my hands out of the sink.
That's when the water kicked on. So I put my hands back in and the water turned off almost like it was set backward. This went on for a few passes.
I was ready to wipe off the soap when the sink decided to cooperate just enough to get my hands soapy, so I talked to it.
"I know this must be a grand game for you, but I've got stuff to do. Could you please cooperate with me now so I can go about my day? You can harass the next person."
The water stayed on and I could rinse so I could fight with the paper towel dispenser.
I always refuse a battle with the paper towel dispenser. Air drying is more environmentally friendly anyway, or I can just use my jeans.
I did my shopping and rounded to produce grabbing myself a few apples. I opened the bag and placed the apples inside only to have them fall through the bottom.
I stood there for a moment just looking at the bag like it was just going to magically put itself back together.
Normally this kind of thing would bug me, but I suppose I was just in a good mood. I shrugged it off like no big deal and selected another bag.
Perhaps this will get me to carry around some reusable grocery and produce bags. I own them, but I can never seem to remember to bring them when I shop, even if I leave them in the car.
Days can be strange, sometimes you just have to roll with it, otherwise, you might just lose your mind.
