Wow. This morning has been a complete disaster.

I could not have made this up if I were writing a script.

Why is it, why, that when I have tried so hard to get the habit of keeping my phone charged that the one day in months that I fail, it is the day I need it to not have failed? I have had this danged thing charged and ready every day for months. I got the habit of frequently checking, to make sure I don't need to charge it. I've stayed on top of it.

Of course, today, when she really needed me to get the phone call *now*, it was dead, and I don't get the message for over an hour.

Even worse, it was dead, but charging, at the time. I'd checked it, as I do every morning, noted it had died, and plugged it in. It just hadn't gotten enough charge for me to reboot it, so it'd take calls. As my father used to say, almost only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades. Fail is fail, no matter how close you were.
