Today I had such an AWESOME day. Even though I really shouldn’t have. You see, theoretically speaking, if one were to add up all the horribleness that happened to me today one would have to conclude that I’ve had a “bad day”. But for some unknown reason, a smile has not ceased to be on my face. Even as I came home at the end of my day,I didn’t through myself on the couch face first into a dog hair infested pillow and fall into a deep coma. No, instead I said, what a great and insightful day! I ought to blog it!
HORRIBLE THING NUMBER ONE:
So, here’s what happened. It all started around 4:00AM today when I woke up with my first ever bout of heartburn. Now, you may be asking yourself, if it was your first ever, how do you know it was heartburn? My answer to that is as follows: because it felt like a weird burning sensation unlike a sore throat throughout the length of my upper esophagus. But then again, it really could have just been the feeling of a feral alien impregnating me E.T.-finger-pointing style (who knows?). Either way It hurt like a bitch and kept me up which led to……
HORRIBLE THING NUMBER TWO:
Me being late to my mathematics class, which is really not THAT bad but I just don’t like being late to classes if can help it.
HORRIBLE THING NUMBER THREE:
So.. some stuff happens in the middle and then we get to……work.
Without getting into detail, I am in child care andI had one of the worst possible things happen today >_<. A child ran out of my class! Now, here are the major problems:
1. I don’t have a phone in my classroom so I have to use my cell which means i must go through all the prompts before reaching a superior.
2. I can’t leave the rest of my students to go after the runner.
3. I can’t not go after the runner.
What’s a girl to do? Have her class line up outside the room and go under the watch of another teacher while I run wildly to find my lost sheep (the runner). I find my sheep and he is very upset and I’m just relieved that the child is fine a few calming words a supportive pat on the back and everything is back to normal, until the lost sheep does it AGAIN! No lie. Again. Same thing happens only this time I finally get through to my superiors and they handle it from there. When I see my sheep next there is a big fluff of cotton candy gleefully hanging from their mouth and sticking to their hands. ( If I run out will I too receive cotton candy bliss???)
Okay so a few bad things, not so awful right? you’re probably telling me, “get over it”,”it’s not that bad”. Hold your judgments for later because that’s not the end of it.
HORRIBLE THING NUMBER FOUR:
I’m wearing a lovely babydoll dress that I received from my in-laws last Christmas. I love it. It’s a ashy grey color, hits just below my knees and has these feminine eyelets that create two bold stripes across the middle. NEVER WEARING IT AGAIN. Why? Because a T.A. asks me, “Are you pregnant?” I’m not even fat! My BMI is in perfectly in the middle! What gives? I could tell she was embarrassed when I said “No” so I played it off like i really wasn’t understanding what she said.
HORRIBLE THING NUMBER FIVE (LAST HORRIBLE THING):
I’m going to keep this one short. I got pegged in the back with a football by a fourth grader. Both my ego and back are now hurt.
So now I’m home and I’m still smiling and happy and I realize that all of these things could have derailed my mood but I managed to laugh at myself and say,”well, at least it didn’t rain”.
