Edward A. Murphy, Jr. Creator of Murphy’s Law

I have to tell you, I finally got it figured out on how to de-stress myself. I got a massage, figured out how to meditate in bathtub full of smelly stuff and a candle. Yep was doing  and feeling pretty good. I wasn’t cussing at other drivers, was patient when the person in front of me at the checkout made major decisions about every item they had in the grocery basket. Was doing very good.  For about a week. Then, BAM, I got sick, I got better, my mom  died, I got sick again. Yep old Murphy was right.If anything can go wrong it will. Here or some more of Murphy and his friends.
