Misfortune Monday: Things Just Keep Happening

There's never going to be a time when things are perfectly alright, but it would be nice to have a few moments of peace. Sadly, this being life and all, that's kind of impossible. Misfortune is abundant and chaos has many names. It could be something as small as a dropped plate of spaghetti or as big as a tornado whipping a house away. A lot can go wrong.

Misfortune Monday: A Lot Can Go Wrong

We can't stop every bad thing from happening in our lives. We can do our best to mitigate errors of our own fault, but sometimes, for no good reason, there's a snake in your toilet and your tires explode. Sometimes we have to face that the world is unpredictable. And in that world, boy oh boy are there many flavors of chaos.

Misfortune Monday: All Kinds of Bummers

Life manages to produce an unpredictable and wide variety of unforeseen chaos that we just kind of have to deal with. Sometimes it's as arbitrary as having your mailbox exploded by lightning, and sometimes it's as small and disheartening as realizing you just tried pouring something into an upside down glass. Life has its messes large and small.

Misfortune Monday: Unforeseen Chaos

You never know when messes large and small can present themselves and wreak havoc upon your life. Your car could get eaten up by a sinkhole, you could accidentally leave a whole book in your washing machine, or you could get your keys stuck in your teeth. It's a decent reminder that uneventful days aren't bad days.

Misfortune Monday: Uneventful Days Aren't Bad Days

Sometimes the days you don't remember are the best ones. Not because anything particularly good happened, but because a strange and specific mishap did not happen. You can never be too sure of what mess large or small will be just over the horizon, but if one thing is for sure, it's that misfortune puts things in perspective.

"It's Not Stupid if it Works" Moments

We like to think solutions have to be as complicated as the problems themselves, but sometimes a seemingly stupid solution is exactly what you need. Where there's a will, there's a way, and sometimes resourceful DIY solutions don't look pretty, but they work.
