Let’s say you’ve been having a bad week. Let’s imagine you freelance for a living and need a few hours everyday sans children to write. Let’s imagine the public school system and a good babysitter provide you with just that. Now let’s imagine that on Tuesday the wind chill factor is such that school gets cancelled. Now let’s imagine that because your youngest child throws up on the way to the sitter’s on Wednesday you don’t get much work done (now two days running). Let’s imagine it’s now Thursday and you are sick along with your little boy.
What do you imagine happens next?
a. Your other two children throw up at school and must come home.
b. The extreme cold causes a pipe in your home to burst.
c. Your ex starts dating a model.
d. You win a million dollars through Ed McMann’s Publisher’s Clearing House Sweepstakes.
So what do you think really happened? While I’m not giving prizes to people who guess correctly, reading your responses just might cheer me up.
