You know Murphy’s Law, right? It states that that which can go wrong, will go wrong?
It can be further extrapolated to such obvious applications such as, if you carry an umbrella, it won’t rain. But if you do, it won’t. I often carry an umbrella just to keep it from raining.
Anyway, that’s why it’s good to have a roadside emergency kit in your car at all times—so that you won’t need it. You can’t go wrong at $10 shipped, you know. Makes a great gift, too, because it’s sort of like magical protection, but much more useful and less gross than a monkey’s paw.
Stop looking at me like that.
