You know the superstition that bad luck comes in threes? Happened to me today. I was carrying a bag of cypress woodchips out of the garage when the bag disintegrated.
I thought the leaf blower/vacuum was doing a pretty good job of cleaning the mess up. Then I looked behind me and the garage was covered with cypress dust while the vacuum bag was virtually empty. The vacuum bag’s zip had failed.
Later I was making dinner and had just finished putting half a packet of dried spaghetti into the pot. I tipped the packet containing the remaining spaghetti upright when the contents suddenly emptied on to my feet. The spaghetti packet had developed a hole in the bottom.
Lucky the groceries survived the trip home!
