One of Those Days

How many times have you had someone say to you "Did you ever have one of those days where..." (fill in the rest with whatever crises has befallen them all day)? I think the most common ending to that is probably "...nothing goes right". Surely something had to go right. Imagine a day where nothing went right.
Alarm clock goes off late. When you finally wake up and realize your late you slip and fall rushing to the bathroom, emptying your bladder upon contact with the floor.
Jump in the shower, hot water knob breaks off so you take a cold shower. Rush out of the shower, put on your clothes, maybe you can still get to work, but you forget about your earlier accident (that you didn't clean up) and slip and fall again, now these clothes are wet and you have to reshower.
Finally getting that out of the way, you go to the kitchen to grab a quick bite to eat. Maybe some toast and juice. Toast burns the first time, of course; next one does ok, you butter it, and promptly drop it buttered side down into the dogs food dish.
Ok forget it. Grab a juice and get going. Head into the garage to start the car that has, you guessed it, a dead battery. No problem though because you have one of those emergency jump start batteries,...still in the original box since you got it as a christmas gift. Never charged up.
So you finally decide to just give up and stay at home. Head back into the kitchen and trip over the dog enjoying a fresh piece of toast. You decide to call in sick; however, your cell phone is broken. (you fell on it after your shower).
Now, given the above is a bit to the extreme, I still believe that nobody has actually had a day where nothing went right. Grab on to one thing a day that does go right and build from there.
