Murphy, DH , cutting wood and my temper
Brenda's post on the storm and Sarah's SIL have made me think a bit more about the smashed roof and tree limb. I don't know of much that has ever made me so angry and every time I remember it I just get angry all over again. To me a double hitch on a broken limb is just common sense and the whole task is a matter of simple physics and geometry. I really need a reminder that what is simple to me is not obvious to everyone. I need to get a life.
Do you think there is a saying somewhere that I could put in a nice frame to remind me that not everyone thinks the same way? After all, I could never manage to take care of animals the way Sarah and Chicky do and training a dog is something that I couldn't manage in a dozen years. That kind of ability amazes me. The kind of thinking I do seems to be much closer to the way a cat thinks. LOL.
How about telling us about your way of thinking and if you have a saying to remind you of the differences between people or to explain how you think. I'm not talking so much about those general prayers such as knowing the difference between the possible and impossible (or maybe I am, if that makes sense). What gets you through the day and gets you back on track when everything seems to be going wrong? My favorites have to be one of the many corollaries of Murphy's Law and the Chinese curse. Sandy
Anything that can go wrong will.
The bread always lands butter side down.
May you live in interesting times.
