Never Ask What Else Can Go Wrong

Keep Calm and Use the Konami Code

Keep Calm and Use the Konami Code

There are many theories around misfortunes – about how they seem to travel in packs, descending on the unwary traveller through life like wolves in the winter’s dark – and there’s certainly enough circumstantial evidence to support that view. The more practical way of thinking about it is that you actually become sensitised to things going wrong, so that as other things don’t go to plan, or happen in a less than optimal way, you are subconsciously expecting it, and so the impact is greater on your outlook. At least, that’s how it’s always seemed to me.

In this instance, it’s been some bad news about my grandfather, and it’s knocked the wind out of me. It’s not looking good (although, as with anything that’s also a matter of perspective), and now the internal debate is about whether I can safely manage a last minute 10+ hour round trip tomorrow and still have wits about me for heading out for a longer journey a day or so later. Pensive doesn’t even begin to describe my emotions right now.

Still, I have people around me who love me, and life will continue in it’s weird and wonderful ways regardless of my decisions in this instance. Perhaps I should be kind to myself rather than make extravagant decisions right now. Next week is Disney week, perhaps I should try not to be a nervous wreck before I actually get there…
