Everything that could possibly go wrong today duly did so. The most alarming part about it is that I didn’t even care. My unfuckwithability is positively scaring me. Here’s a selected list of disasters that befell me within twenty-four hours:
- Not only did someone take my seat on the morning bus, but the evening bus was a substitute one. Among other downgrades, there was no Wi-Fi on board. I don’t need to say more. Except that I was considering staying overnight, sleeping rough with (as of among) the local homeless population.
- When I arrived home, freezing and starving, I mindlessly dropped my earphones on the floor, which attracted the mindful cat, who chewed the right-ear wire within a split of second. Now I have a mono listening experience (a new set of earphones is on the way).
- Five minutes later, as I was removing my favourite amber earrings from the ears, the stud of one came away from the post, and lo, I was left with a miniature sceptre and orb. I wasn’t impressed. (The broken earring is currently being fixed and will rejoin the unbroken earring and the cat pendant that goes with it – picture above).
I faced the uninterrupted series of horrors with perfect indifference. As apparent from my comments in the list, I also didn’t waste time to get things fixed asap. I hope I’m not becoming a model trouble solver. That would be very unlike me. Also, may the malevolent ruler of the universe send no more disasters my way, if I may, I’m good.
