Lunch Box Wisdom 27 Apr 2018...

Lunch Box Wisdom 27 Apr 2018...

"I cannot brain today. I has the dumb."

Have you ever had one of those days where everything seems to be running in slow motion, backwards, in the wrong color?  I have... several actually.  

Once I went to turn a corner in my Jeep, went to wave a friend, and ran over one of the daily special signs. So hopped out to stand it back up and my Jeep kept going.  I jumped back in my jeep and slammed on the breaks.  Relieved, I looked out to see the person I was waving at laughing historically.  I grinned embarrassed and head on to work. 

My day went on pretty much that same from there.  I was late to work, forgot both my security badge and my laptop at home. So I had to head back home to get them, making me even more late for work.  At lunch I realized I had forgotten my lunch too.  Wow, could it get any better.  Yes is could, my stomach growled so loud in the afternoon meeting that everyone started to giggle.  I tried to shrink into my chair, and explained how I had missed lunch.

It was not until I was back at my desk that I started to see the good in my chaos day.  My friend from the morning sent me a message saying that my sleepy driving skills had given her the best laugh all week and she thanked me.  I had to smile and think, I guess that was the best thing that could have happened in that situation.  Some laughs and no crash.  Plus one of the folks from the meeting brought me some cookies. She said she had missed lunch once last week and they should hit the spot.  They sure did, they were some of the best homemade chocolate chip cookies ever. 

So moral of the story… every bad day can become a great day. It’s all in how you look at it. Plus, you never know who you might be impacting with you unwitting entertainment value :-)
