When things go as unplanned

Life has a way of throwing surprises at us when we least expect them; but then again that's why they are called surprises, right? Some of them leave us on top of the moon while others leave us rock bottom. Either way, I can bet my last dime that we have all passed through these surprises at one time or another in our lives. For instance, today I was in the office working on a document when suddenly the application I was using just shut down, erasing everything I had been working on for several hours.

What sank the Ship?

Not to say that there's any good way to die, but I think death by water is just too painful. Why do I say this? Because in my earlier days of learning how to swim I drunk enough pool-water by force (hoping it hadn't been peed in), and the feeling was just wrong! Besides the water drinking, there's that part where water gets into your nose and it is a horrendous feeling! Can you imagine how the victims of death-by-water must have felt? Especially the kids and non-swimmers? My heart just goes out to them, and may their souls rest in eternal peace.

A Random Act of Kindness from a Dog!

Not all days are the same and whether you want to believe it or not, even I have my moments of feeling low… I’m human after all, ain’t I? And Thursday the 12th of July was such a day….You see, the previous morning my gym instructor SAS had taken me through a killer program and needless to say, when I woke up on Thursday morning my entire body was screaming at me to the point of feeling feverish, but I still had to go to the gym…. Yep, I know; No pain, no gain….. :-(
