One of Those Days

Have you ever had "one of those days"? We all have. We've all had that day where it seems that everything that can go wrong will go wrong. If you are unfamiliar with "those days", let me give you a hypothetical example:

You sleep through your alarm clock. You are then jolted awake because the ceiling fan in your bedroom falls from the ceiling, missing you by inches, but managing to crush your cell phone to pieces. But you have no time to clean it up because you now realize you are late for work and can not call in that you are late as you no longer have a phone. As you rush to the bathroom to hop in the shower you trip over your shoes and end up falling headlong towards the toilet. You smack your face on the rim and chip your tooth. You fight through the pain and jump in the shower. You find that you have no shampoo at all and only enough body wash to clean half of yourself. When you exit the shower, you are only half clean and your hair is still dirty, but now it is wet. You have to skip breakfast. You get stuck in traffic because you woke up late and end up being 2.5 hours late for work. You get fired. Now you have gone through all the trouble of the worst morning ever just to get fired. You go out to your car to go home, but you have a flat tire and no spare in the trunk. You have to call a tow truck to haul your car to the shop and take a $50 cab ride home only to find that you forgot to lock your house and have been robbed of everything except your busted ceiling fan and broken cell phone.


As you can imagine, having "one of those days" is extremely stressful on the human body. Heart rate, mental stability, and blood pressure, are all negatively effected by having "one of those days". As such, most people can only physically survive 1 of "those days" at a time. Fortunately, "those days" seem to be spread out over the months and years rather than being back to back. This is why the expression is "one of those days" and not "one of those weeks" or "one of those months". On the rare occasion that an individual does experience 2 of "those days" consecutively, they usually do not survive. However, such instances are extremely rare. So, if you are having "one of those days", take comfort that tomorrow will be better. And if tomorrow is also "one of those days", you'll most likely die and then you won't have anything else to worry about ever.
