Bad and Bad




Minnies groupies are busy running around in circles," I told you, something bad must have happened to Minnie!“ Einar looked at Frida and then turned his attention to Bert. "I told you not to let her out of your sight, you know how crazy Minnie gets this time of year." Frida, worry wart that she is started to sipper, "Ohhh, this has to be bad, bad and bad. I just knew that guy was big trouble!"

Just then, Minnie came strolling towards them with a giant grin on her face. "Well kiddos, I decided today was my day to be bad."
BAD

Minnie-ism “for todays A-Z challenge:

“--The bad things that we do can only be defined by the good things we have done. My guess is that it is a ratio of 10-1. For every 10 good things you do, you can do one bad.”

“--Bad things happen for a reason, sometimes we just need to be reminded how good we really have it. Nah, bad things just happen.”

There are a lot of bad things that happen around the world every day. We can ask ourselves over and over again, why? I am sure there are a lot of different reasons belonging to a lot of different things. But the truth is that bad things just happen. It is the nature of man and the fierceness of Mother Nature.

Have you ever had one of those days where everything goes wrong? One bad thing after another just happens, and all you can do is just stand there, hopelessly staring as your day is going up in smoke. I have had a lot of those days lately. Just a lot of little stupid things keep happening, but they happen so fast, just like dominoes falling at my feet. Standing up on the wrong side of the bed seems to be given a whole new meaning ,and now I am sitting here just laughing at how stupid these things really are. You stub your toe, you lose your phone, your car just dies in the middle of the street, your orders get lost, Appointments get cancelled, you lose your parking space, you burn your dinner and you break a plate…etc…etc…

After all is said and done, I must have done at least 10 good things while trying to cope with the bad things, so now it is my turn to be bad. If the ratio is 10-1 than maybe I can do 2 bad things. The little devil in me is busy making plans and all of a sudden it feels good to be bad and the bad does not bother me so much anymore.

Unfortunately I think my ratio is 10 bad 1 good. I always had trouble with math.

I think it's too early for my brain to process that...or maybe I'm just having a bad day.

But sometimes Bad is Good right? Maybe only in the 80s. :) I like the ratio of 10:1.

Tara Tyler said...

I've never heard of that ratio, but it does seem to make sense in this digital, metric world we live in. Keep your chin up and don't let the bad get you down.

I fear my good to bad ratio is not that god!
