One of those days

MSU News - July 8, 2015 - 3:30pm
Ever have one of those days? Today has certainly been one for me. It started out with my dog waking me up just early enough to be too early, and just late enough to go back to sleep. To top it off, my arm was completely asleep - I might as well been trying to open the door with a wet noodle. Though it was too late to go back to sleep, that didn't stop me from turning off my alarm and dozing back off, only to wake with a start realizing that now I was actually late. I jumped into the shower to find only a trace amount of shampoo left. How does that happen? I swear there was more in the bottle yesterday. Are bandits sneaking into my house while I'm gone to shower and use my shampoo? Is it evaporating? While I was rinsing out the minuscule amount, an alarm on my phone went off, causing me to drip all over the floor in a mad scramble to shut it off. As I pulled on my skirt, I put my toe into the hem, ripping a good section so I chose something else to wear - and promptly tore the strap on the shirt. I moved onto outfit number three very carefully and eventually got dressed. I jammed my toothbrush into my gum, poked myself in the eye with my eyeliner and turned on my blow dryer to find it groaning like it's on its last leg.
