positively unlucky day

Today was a real comedy of errors.

We went to Nagoya to visit friends.

It was supposed to be quite the party with a big group of friends getting together.

So far so good.

Then....

One of the party got food poisoning- and her car broke down.

Meg came over all itchy just being in a house that dogs live in- not even playing with the dogs. A new escalation in her allergic history.

It was a lot hotter in Nagaoya than we northerners had imagined and we were broiling away in jeans and long shirts.

Our host's daughter came don with a horrible migraine.

We got caught up in a massive traffic jam on the way home when there was a fire on the highway. Stuck in a hot car, unmoving on the highway at the tail end of a long day.

Amy got a blood nose in the car, while sleeping, and didn't notice until it had spread quite considerably.

Got home and freaked out racing around getting ready for my tutorees- only to realise an hour later that it was Wednesday- not Thursday when my students come over.

Oh well. We made it through the day and it was really a bit of a laugh in the end, yeah?

You've just got to stay positive, don't you? Even when you're positively unlucky!

Thank you for the ride back from Nagoya! I am forever grateful!! The bus only took an hour, which is the good part, but I can continue on with your bad luck story from there as we ended up going to hospital my feet were so swollen and painful. It was a loooong day, eh?

WOW! That does sound like a day full of unlucky outcomes.

Hopefully the bad luck is now over!

Right, surely you've had a bad enough day to suck everyone's bad luck for at least the weekend. I hope it's a good one for you - can't be much worse though can it.
