It was a rough day.
Six people had called in sick at work, four of my classes had their finals today, my car broke down, and now?
Now I have to do dishes.
And fix the broken lamp that my cat knocked over.
Sighing, I get out the broom and dustpan, ready to give in. Throw it all away.
And, in that small moment of weakness, I say it.
I say it.
“Okay Dad, you can come take me away any time now.”
It was a joke. One-hundred percent, I was joking.
But, wouldn’t you know it—
That’s sayings got some truth to it.
Speak of the devil.
