Murphy tends to appear when I least expect, or more importantly, want him to. Murphy has been in my life for at least the last 38 years. I doodled him in school, on basically any flat surface. A few years ago, a similar shape/character appeared on a clothing line – I can’t remember the name of the company now, but it was quite big in Australia. But Murphy, as he later became known, was all mine. All buck teeth and soulful eyes. LOL
When I was pregnant with my third child, I did an adult literacy course on how to teach adults to read, write and do basic math. One assignment on the course was to write a short story that would be easy to read for beginners, but aimed at adults, not children.
I brought back to life the doodle I’d done in school and named him Murphy. I even created him a whole backstory. But the upshot was – he represented Murphy’s Law. When something can go wrong – it quite often will. And believe me – in today’s video – that’s exactly what happened!!
Okay, enough chatter, let’s get on with this post.
