Bad Timing Is Everything.

It is frustrating how all it takes is one annoying thing to ruin an entire day. 

Not that it was all that good of a day to begin with, but it wasn't really a bad day. 
You can feel like you are holding your own and then something happens to cause a startle of some sort. 

A bump in the road. But that bump feels more like a pothole.
It kinda knocks the breathe out of you, causes confusion. 

An annoyance that feels like a crisis. The brain locks up. The body goes into panic mode. It becomes a crisis in the moment. 

Brain Overload!  TILT! TILT! TILT! 

The next thing you know you are on your butt with those cartoon stars circling around your head. 
The rest of the day you feel like a punch drunk boxer. 
Headache and exhaustion, jumpy on the edge of panic. Body hurt all under. Stomach in knots. Nerves shredded. 

All because something happened today, on a marginal day, instead of happening on a good day, when it would have been only an annoyance.


  1. Hi Phyllis,

    I like this bad timing piece because it is so true. Something happens to cause a little startle. HAH. After 30 tears who knows what that could be? I would like to print ion pour snail mail LIFELINE. Permission? I can send you a copy once it is done
