Wow. This was the scene last Towel Day:
Me (to my wife): Ok. I want to put up the next installment of The Expensive Universal Instrument tonight. I feel a bit off, but no matter how it gets, I’m going to finish it tonight!
Universe: Oh yeah?
Cue the universe basically kicking my ass six ways to Sunday and dragging in innocent bystanders to boot (apologies to my wife, one of those bystanders). Not content with mere physical sickness, it proceded to be nail us in inventive ways. It was a royal beat down and I am appropriately chastened.
Me: 0, Universe: a bazillion.
Now. That being said, I feel better today. It’s time to get in gear again! *ducks*
