Superior Force

Superior Force:

The natural rubber, grid design, non-slip shower mat which I had in my shower cubicle needed a clean. In fact, it was urgently in need of a good wash!

And so, I decided that perhaps the best thing to do, the only thing I could think of, was to put it in the washing machine.

Then, as I stuffed the item into the machine, I suddenly realised I had completely run out of washing powder!

What was I to do?

All of a sudden, as if I had a brain wave, I thought, I know! It may not have been the right idea, not the best, but at the time it was the only thing that came to mind!

Rushing for the washing up liquid, I began to excessively squeeze the liquid into the drum of the washing machine.

Shutting the door tight, I then turned the dial for the correct programme, pressed the on button and left the machine to do its job!

Sometime later, I came back into the kitchen to discover that the washing machine had completed its cycle.

On opening the drum door, I was taken back by surprise, as I became over-powered by a vast multitude of bubbles!

Gasping for breath, as I tried to fight back the encounter, the bubbles began to take over the kitchen!

It seemed, as the bubbles were compressed in the drum with the door closed – they were confined to a small area, but as soon as the drum door was opened – well the rest is history!!

It was like taking part in a real-life science fiction film!

Everything was out of my control. I became overcome by a superior force – an army of soapy globules!

There appeared to be bubbles everywhere. Absolutely everywhere!

What is more, as I tried to wipe them away from my face, it brought a whole new meaning to the song “I’m forever blowing bubbles!”

Then, as I attempted to call for help, my every utterance became a burble, gurgle and splutter!

Over-come by the soapy experience; I was forced to place the shower mat back in the shower cubicle, to finally wash away all the bubbles!

O boy!

Now, I’m not saying that I have this all together. Yep, I’ll freely admit there’s times when I get things wrong. Times when I make mistakes – all be it inadvertently!

Who doesn’t?

How easy it is though, to let these things get us down!

But cheer-up folks, it’s not the end of the world!

Don’t let things get the better of you!

Despite expectations, it was only bubbles!

As we look back upon the sequence of events, it’s so refreshing to have a good laugh.

After-all, a cheerful disposition is good for your health; gloom and doom leave you bone-tired!

Yes, that’s right, laughter is life’s lubricant.
