The following is Murphy's other law. Hope you enjoy this Doris LaRue.
1. Everyone has a photographic memory. Some don't have any film.
2. He who laughs last, thinks slowest.
3. A day without sunshine is like, well, night.
4. Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine.
5. Back up my hard drive? How do I put it in reverse?
6. I just got lost in thought. It was unfamiliar territory.
7. When the chips are down, the buffalo is empty.
8. Seen it all, done it all. Can't remember most of it.
9. Those who llive by the sword get shot by those who don't.
10. I feel like I'm diagonally parked in a parallel universe.
