A Blonde Journal
Had to take my Christmas scarf back to store — it was way too tight!
Fired from pharmacy job for failing to print labels. I really tried, but those bottles wouldn’t fit in the typewriter!
Exciting success! I finished the jigsaw puzzle I got for Christmas after only two-and-a-half months — even the box said “2-4 years”!
Missed the deadline for filing income tax due to being trapped on escalator for several hours on my way to the post office (the power went out!)
Tried to make Kool-Aid, but the instructions were wrong — 8 cups of water simply do not fit into those little packets!
Tried to go water skiing, but I couldn’t find a lake with a slope.
Lost breast-stroke swimming competition. Learned later the other swimmers cheated: they used their arms!
Got locked out of my car in huge rain storm. Car interior ruined because convertible top was down.
Missed getting on “Jeopardy” because I missed the first test question. I was sure the capital of California is “C”!
Realized I hate M&M’s — they are too hard to peel.
Thanksgiving turkey ruined, even though I followed the directions perfectly (instructions said 1 hour per pound, and I weigh 118. I know you have to prepare big dinners in advance, but 5 days is ridiculous!)
Fell off step stool while decorating Christmas tree, but couldn’t call 911 — there’s no “eleven” button on the stupid phone!
All in all, 2008 was a terrible year. I sure hope 2009 is better.
