Humor in the Annoying

An empty gas tank in the middle of the road;
Slipping on a discarded banana peel;
Locking yourself outside in the pouring rain;
A huge zit you just can't conceal;

Your keys tumbling down the storm drain;
A bug flying up your nose;
A broken high heel shoe at work;
And the pain of stubbed Pinky toes.

Stepping in a fresh pile of dog poo;
Poking yourself in the eye;
Losing a crisp twenty dollar bill;
Dropping a fresh baked apple pie.

So many silly accidents happen everyday;
There's no point in getting annoyed.
Chaos is all around us;
It's not something we can avoid. 

So the next time you trip on nothing at all,
Or get brain freeze from your favorite ice cream,
Remember to laugh at those silly moments -
They're never as bad as they seem.


  1. Great advice; cliché warning: don't sweat the small stuff, and everything is . . .
    Just FYI - AtoZ skips Sundays: G is Monday, H is Tuesday, so you get to take a break 'til Wednesday for I. Yeah!
    G is for: Great Honors Bestowed by Ludwig

  2. Ha! Loved this. Those little annoyances only seem to happen when you just can't take it, don't they!
    Operation Awesome. Our A to Z 2019 theme is the writing journey.
