83. If You Listen Carefully, You Can Hear The Universe Laugh
Marjorie must have circled around the office park. She drove by to flip us off again and hit a tree. Despite the car’s airbags, Marjorie – the very person trying to alert people to the connection between binge drinking and head injury -- got a concussion. Some would call Marjorie's head injury just a coincidence and blame it on a defective airbag. I could almost hear the universe laughing. She had tempted fate and gotten burned.
Today I will beware: the universe has a wicked sense of humor and loves irony.
