The Way Of Murphy.

Around the office, Murphy's Law (the facetious proposition that if something can go wrong, it will) gets blamed for a lot of things. At least once a day, Amy or I will say "that's Murphy for you!" Amy even saw a billboard the other day that said "Blame Murphy":o).

Every Friday (normally around 5ish... right Katie?!?) Amy will print off a copy of the Sunday bulletin for Katie or I to proofread. Yesterday there were tons of people in and out of the office all day so it wasn't until about 5:15 that I proofread the bulletin. I caught a couple of errors here and there, including a line being where it wasn't supposed to be, a space after a dash, a two-colored line, and the phrase "Regular classes resume this week" for Bible Institute even though Pastor Hammett left on a trip Friday morning - no regular classes this week! But all in all, there weren't too many mistakes and I was pleasantly surprised. Amy changed everything, printed it, and then folded the bulletin.

Twenty minutes later the room was as quiet as could be (with the exception of Bev, Amy, and I typing at our computers) when Amy suddenly cried "Oh no!!!!" Bev and I turned around and looked at her, and she had this goofy grin on her face.

"I forgot to change the date!" So with the perfectly lined up announcements, the correct spelling of names, and the correct cleaning schedule tucked in the right hand corner, the date May 13, 2007 boldly sits across the top of the left hand page.

Sometimes, that's just the way it is... and of course we thought of good 'ole Murphy!
