Series of (Un)fortunate Events

Initial Take

Friday 10pm, previous self-inflicted pain (aka exercise), has finally settled and chooses to reveal itself during a serving opportunity at church, causing inability to walk fast.

1:30pm Saturday, glass platter slips and shatters into hundreds of pieces, a few of them landing on my left lower extremity (aka foot) causing an abrasion and a minor cut.

Same day, 2:45pm, almost did not make it to serving food on time (aka double time) at a friend's wedding.

Three hours prior to bedtime, still Saturday, while performing a three point turn with faithful mechanical transport (aka car), backed up into a fire hydrant causing broken tailight and dented bumper.

Corrected understanding

Friday 10pm, still can walk and was able to serve at church event.

1:30pm Saturday, glass platter slips and breaks, minimal injury.

Same day, 2:45pm, served food at a friend's wedding right on time.

Three hours prior to bedtime, still Saturday, while performing a three point turn with faithful automotive, did not crash into a car or a person.

Still recipient of God's good graces.
