Yup, that’s how today was going. Keyword there: was. This morning was absolutely horrible. You know,one of those kind of days. Me and Physical Science had a fight this morning and it won. Awful.
I was still feeling pretty miserable on my way home from class, when I grabbed the shoulderstrap on my backpack to pull it up a little bit, and I grabbed too hard. Before I knew it, my hand was swinging up by my face.
This reminded me of Scotland. And before I knew it, I was laughing. All the way home. The people I passed probably thought I was a little crazy, but I do not even care.
You see, in Scotland, I did the same thing. I was just harmlessly adjusting my backpack so that it wouldn’t slide down my arm, and I put too much energy into it. Up swung my fist, and KAPOW I punched myself in the ear. Not just a tap punch, either, a full on oomph punch.
Punching yourself in the ear hurts a lot. But it is also hilarious. Because who does that? Just me, probably. The whole time we were in Scotland after that, I laughed any time I adjusted my backpack. And I am still laughing that I almost did it again.
Who knew that causing yourself pain could brighten your day so much?
