Years ago Husband and I were watching the news. After a particularly disturbing story about some country running amok I turned to him and said, “Aren’t we lucky to live in a country where the military doesn’t walk around the streets toting weapons!”
Then 9/11 happened and just like that there were military personnel walking around Times Square with automatic weapons slung over their shoulders!
The next comment I made along those lines was about China having to wear masks……I think I said something like, “Aren’t you glad we live in a country where we don’t have to wear face masks to be able to breathe safely?”
And then Covid-19 hit us like a ton of bricks and BOOM, here we are wearing masks!
Last night there was a story on the news about a man who wasn’t allowed to enter his town because he didn’t have the proper ‘papers’ to show he lived there.
I turned to Husband but before I could open my mouth he said, “Don’t! You’ve already jinxed us into gun toting military patrolling our streets and having to wear face masks to go anywhere! So don’t say a word! Just don’t!”
Moral of the story……you can blame me for this mess, it’s all my fault!
