Sometimes life just doesn’t seem fair. Have you ever had a day when . . .

your favorite pants shrunk in the wash?

your best friend was being a beast?

you were too short to go on the best ride?

no one would listen to you?

Well, take heart—you’re not alone. Everyone has one of those days sometimes. And even if you bowled gutter balls or your nice sweater made you itchy, at least there’s a bright side—a brand-new day is waiting for you tomorrow, and you can laugh at those days when they’re over.
