I Once Knew A Teacher

There is a statement by the name of Murphy's law. It goes, whatever can go wrong, will go wrong. Of course I know this to not be pure fact. Although in my life there have been rough spots, plenty of fine sailing has occurred without a hitch. This of course relates in no way to the possibility of a jinx, despite the fact superstitions are somewhat rooted in reality.
Murphy's law does seem to take a more powerful truth in my life as a military brat. Many possible problems can arise as there is no way to truly know what will happen in your parents lives, if they'll be deployed, or if there ranking officer will say no to those couple days he or she will need to take you on a camping trip.
The thing that I like the most about Murphy's law is the exaggeration. There will always be the chance that things will go great. In fact, Murphy's law seems to state that eventually things will go wrong, for something to be perfect is impossible. Thats what scares me, that when something is going great, how will you know the moment where it all crumbles. Anyways, I guess I'll just have to enjoy life until that moment comes, and hope it never does.
