This week's Top Ten Tuesday is a continuation of my post about Big Chamor's wedding last week. It's interesting to note that, not only did Big Chamor help me write this post, but she actually told me to include Murphy's Law of Important Dates, which states that you will get a cold or some other illness whenever there is an important event, such as a wedding. It is further interesting to note, that she mentioned that before her wedding...
10) Murphy's Law of Brothers: Items in the house will start to break about fifteen minutes after your most handy brother leaves for a month in yeshivah.
9) Murphy's Law of Cell Phone Batteries: Your cell phone battery will die just when you get lost in a strange and dangerous neighborhood after sunset.
8) Murphy's Law of Coming On Time To Work: Your father will receive a super important phone call which can not be disturbed...exactly at the minute you need him to drive you to work.
7) Murphy's Law of The Great Outdoors: The sky will be beautiful the entire time you are setting up an elaborate picnic in the great outdoors. It will only start to rain as the guests arrive and start to eat. Alternatively, the sky will open up as you reach the halfway point in a four mile hike.
6) Murphy's Law of Cooking For Shabbos: The food will burn on the week that you are having important guests.
5) Murphy's Law of Babysitting: The baby will always start to cry inconsolably a minute before the parents get home, leaving them to think that the baby was wailing the entire time and you are an awful babysitter.
4) Murphy's Law of Tollbooths: You will always pick the toll lane where the guy will have a problem with his EZ-Pass and take forever. Or the lane with the guy who looks suspicious and needs to wait for a police to come and check his car put.
3) Murphy's Law of Yom Tov: The shabbos lamp will die on the first night of yom tov. It will never, ever, die on a regular week night.
2) Murphy's Law of Clean spaces: The kid will only throw up on a freshly washed floor. Alternatively, the kid will throw up on a brand new carpet or in a car on its way home from the showroom.
1) Murphy's Law of Wedding Outfits: The first time you wear your new, expensive, and (in your opinion) young, stylish outfit to a wedding there will be a lady that's your grandmother's age wearing the same outfit. Alternatively, the same outfit will be worn by the biggest nerd you've ever met.
