especially when you've just experienced a string of rather unsettling events.
What else could go wrong?
This is a HUGE NO NO. It's like talking about extra money you just came into while driving your car. IT CAN HEAR YOU! No, it really can and it will immediately develop something that requires you spend your extra money (down to the penny) on it. We never talk money in the car. Never ever.
I once made the mistake of saying out loud how amazing it was that we had been Children's ER Free for over a month. BAM! Not more than three hours later we were sitting in a tiny hot room with one of our girls laying on the hospital bed.
Today, after a rather painful night in which one of the kids had to sleep with me and my husband had to sleep elsewhere, we ended up at the pediatrician and then would have been admitted into the hospital (but weren't, that's another story entirely), our basement flooded and then the suburban become possessed.
No, it did. There was no swiveling head and spitting out green pea soup but still. When I turned it off and took the key out, everything started blinking. The lights, the radio station lights, the...everything! I even opened the door to see if that would stop it. Nope.
Blinkity Blink Blink Blink.
I called my husband, who was home and recounted my horror at our possessed vehicle.
He heaved a rather large sigh and said, "What else could go wrong today?"
I shudder to think.
