A bad Day

I should never have deleted the chain letter email from my computer.  The letter clearly warned me that if i did,  I would have one day of bad luck.  Unlike my mother,  I tend not to believe these types of things bringing bad luck:  breaking a mirror,  someone giving me the " evil eye, ” or even opening an umbrella in the house.  As a result,  I got rid of this ​

superstitious ​

emailВ withВ oneВ quickВ clickВ ofВ theВ mouse. В ThatВ night, В however, В asВ IВ fellВ asleep, В IВ hadВ theВ uncomfortableВ feelingВ thatВ somethingВ wasВ notВ quiteВ right. В В

When I woke up the next morning,  I was surprised to find that I had overslept and would be late for job.  As I rushed down the stairs to eat a quick breakfast,  I ​ tripped​

overВ myВ bagВ andВ IВ fallВ downВ theВ stairsВ tillВ IВ

reachedВ theВ kitchen. В IВ madeВ aВ sandwichВ andВ aВ cupВ ofВ coffeeВ asВ IВ finishedВ myВ breakfastВ IВ realizedВ thatВ IВ wasВ gettingВ lateВ forВ workВ andВ IВ rushedВ toВ myВ car. В AsВ IВ droveВ theВ carВ toВ workВ itВ stoppedВ inВ theВ middleВ ofВ theВ roadВ andВ IВ decidedВ toВ walkВ toВ theВ office, В IВ knewВ IВ wasВ gonnaВ beВ lateВ toВ work. В В

OnВ myВ wayВ toВ work, В IВ decidedВ toВ takeВ aВ shortcutВ throughВ anВ oldВ partВ ofВ town. В WhenВ IВ walkedВ fromВ myВ carВ toВ takeВ theВ shortcut, В IВ realizeВ thatВ IВ forgetВ myВ coffeeВ inВ theВ carВ andВ IВ walkedВ backВ toВ myВ carВ toВ getВ myВ coffeeВ andВ startВ walkingВ toВ work. В AsВ IВ startedВ myВ wayВ toВ theВ shortcutВ IВ walkedВ reallyВ fastВ andВ didn'tВ seeВ whereВ IВ wasВ goingВ andВ IВ fallВ toВ theВ groundВ whereВ itВ wasВ dirtyВ whenВ IВ stoodВ upВ allВ myВ clothesВ gotВ dirtyВ withВ mud. В IВ keptВ onВ walkingВ andВ walkingВ tillВ IВ reachedВ theВ streetВ andВ decidedВ toВ restВ andВ eatВ somethingВ onВ myВ wayВ toВ work, В IВ sawВ aВ cafeВ closeВ toВ theВ officeВ andВ stoppedВ thereВ toВ haveВ somethingВ cold.

When I arrived at work,  I found a note from my boss on my desk.  She wanted to see me ​ right away​

. В IВ

tookВ aВ deepВ breathВ andВ walkedВ В intoВ herВ office. В AsВ IВ steppedВ inside, В IВ noticedВ aВ scowlВ onВ herВ face. В AtВ thatВ timeВ IВ...
