Not a bad day after all

The day appeared jinxed.I put on the washing machine at the kitchen and entered the living room. An editor- friend from Mumbai came online and I got engrossed in chatting. Hardly 20 minutes passed by, when I felt something wet soaking my toes. No, I had not done what a baby would have. I looked down and was aghast to see my room filled with soap water.
I had ostensibly left the washing machine outlet tube down the floor and all the rooms were filled with water. I called the watchman and he began cleaning up the mess.
I sat on a chair to chat again when I lost balance and the chair broke. I asked the watchman to discard it.
I then picked up my phone to call India only to realise that there was not sufficient credit.
Enough, I told myself and went down the building to buy fresh milk for coffee.
I saw a friend coming in the opposite direction. He had already taken AED500 from me as loan and I thought it was not the best of days to greet him. I entered a laundry shop. He was approaching fast. I ran to the next pharmacy. He chased and successfully caught me.
Before I could say anything, he thrust AED200 in my pocket and said, “Thanks. I will return the rest later.”
The day was not jinxed after all.
