the domino effect

For every action, there is a corresponding reaction.
I learned this the hard way yesterday morning.

I sat watching some morning television, something I rarely have time for. I was enjoying my morning cup of British blend tea. Someone said something on TV, and that started the domino effect. That is when the first domino fell...

I inhaled instead of swallowing.>> I tried to swallow anyway.>> Realized I was doomed and the tea was gonna spew.>> To save the carpet, I spewed into my cup, ruining a good cup of tea.>> Wretch was watching, and started to laugh.>> Made me laugh.>> I peed my pants from laughing and choking.

And so the dominoes fell, and my year comes to an end. Not a totally bad way to end the year. Laughter is good.

But I would have preferred not peeing my pants.

Hope y'all have a great 2012, filled with lots of laughter!
