Daily Prompt: Comedy of Errors (and bonus assignment!)

“Murphy’s Law says, “Anything that can go wrong will go wrong.” Write about a time everything did — fiction encouraged here, too!

Bonus assignment: do you keep a notebook next to your bed? Good. Tomorrow morning, jot down the first thought you have upon waking, whether or not it’s coherent.” The Daily Post

A time when everything went wrong? Hmm.. sounds like last week to me!

  • The girl from my calculus class got mad at me.
  • I didn’t understand the calculus lesson.
  • I never had time to study.
  • They misspelled my name in a school video announcement.
  • Someone told me I looked dumb in the Friday video.
  • I fell behind in Key Club work.
  • I had to call out from work because there was too much to do.
  • I was stressed out over a volleyball marathon.
  • I had to miss a National Honor Society Meeting.
  • I had to miss a Student Government Association Meeting.
  • I had to rush to submit a scholarship on time.
  • The people I needed to get papers signed all coincidentally were absent.
  • The printer I had to use was coincidentally jammed.

Also, many more things took place but I don’t want to bore you. As you can see, my life isn’t perfect. It’s basically beyond basic.

Regarding the bonus assignment, sure, I’ll give it a shot! But on a normal day, I can remember my dream without ever writing a single thing down. Like last night I dreamt about a certain kid confiding in me the fact that he’s gay and then he asked me to prom and I was SO happy because I really liked him and I knew it meant I had a reason to not go with the kid who asked me to prom last week. Now that I analyze it, could this be my sub-conscience mind trying to tell me not to go with him…?
