Why? Why is Murphy harassing me? Alone at home, I put on loud music, locked the door, wrapped a towel and entered the rest room. I was about to put on the shower, when the damn landline rang. I ran, picked it up and the line went dead.
Back to the rest room, I put on the shower. Wow, what a pleasant hot/cold mixed water! In less than four minutes, I had soap all over my body. It was then that Murphy struck again. The same damn phone.
It was a friend. “Oh, you are taking bath?” she asked me.
“No, I am dancing,” I wanted to reply, but politely said “yes.”
“Talk to you later.”
The room was wet all over. And a few drops of soap water also splashed on the laptop near the phone.
I had to rush to Dubai for some work. I asked a friend with car to drop me.
“You should have told me. Just 10 minutes back, I was crossing your house and thought of ringing you up,” he replied. “Now I am already in Dubai.”
Murphy’s Law played its trick again.
Once when I mentioned that if I find Murphy I will hang him upside down and pour hot water on his face, famous blogger Priyanka Khot laughed out.
I am telling you again, I will do it. Grrrr.
