What Could Happen?

Daily Prompt: Worst Case Scenario
Of all the awful possibilities, what’s the worst possible thing that could happen to you today?


Thinking of worst case scenario means, tempting fate. Even if nothing is going to happen, you think of it, and the deed is done.

Yesterday the microwave stopped working. Time to get a new one. You can imagine the misery we are going through.

The worst thing which can happen today, is that the flush won’t work. It’s a nightmare. It means trips to to the downstairs bathroom, when the need arises. There you are banging at the door, and the elder one, or the middle one is in there having a jolly good time with his iPhone. The earplugs are in place, and they can’t hear you.

The last time the flush was not working, I made a paper sign, and put it on the lid, “Don’t use.”

The youngest, IB didn’t look at it. He removed the sign, and used it. It bubbled right over. There was a huge mess to be cleaned.
