 he things that happen to me cannot be explained. I believe that people view me in a positive light for being a normal guy trying to lead a normal life —
and yet fate places me in situations that defy explanation. Here’s an example of something that just happened to me and I can’t imagine it happening to anyone else. It was my nephew’s birthday the other week, and we decided that we would get him one of those “gamer” chairs from City Mill. My car is a manual drive two-seater, so I tried to shove the box into my passenger seat. The box in turn scraped the headliner so that it no longer adhered to the roof and
“bagged” to where it was resting on my head.
It was annoying to no end. While I drove, I kept pushing the material off my head with one hand while steering and shifting with the other. I took the box home and completely
forgot about the headliner issue.
The next morning, I jumped into my car to go to work.
                      Again, the headliner material rested on the top of my head and stayed there no matter which way I swiveled my head. It acted and looked like I was wearing a giant turban.
                         To best describe it, those of you who remember The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson should picture his Carnac the Magnificent bit. If you’re too young, Google it and you’ll see Carson dressed in a gigantic turban on his head. It was a comedic role in which he played a psychic swami of sorts.
        He would divine the answer to a question written on a card “hermetically sealed” inside an envelope. He would announce the answer to the audience then tear open the envelope to reveal the question.
      Anyway, I went to purchase my morning coffee before driving to work. This is my daily habit, which I almost never waver from. I placed my order at the drive-thru and proceeded to the window to receive my coffee.
     Since I had to use both hands to pay for and grab my cup, I had to let the headliner rest on top of my head like Carnac’s turban. I pretended like nothing was wrong and that it was a regular morning just like any other.
     The server at the window kept looking at me, probably wanting to laugh or ask me what was going on. She said something to the other workers and then I saw all of them come to the window to see me in my new headwear.
      As I drove away, I decided to complete my Carnac role to myself. Answer: “The 1962 New York Mets, Seinfeld’s George Costanza, Ron Nagasawa.”
    Question: “Who are the world’s biggest losers?”
