I didn’t even know what ‘Instant Karma’ was until about three years ago. I was talking to a co-worker, as I am walking away from her I said something sarcastic (big surprise, right?). I tripped and almost fell. From her direction I hear her yell, “Instant Karma”. What? This is Karma? I just thought I was just a klutz. I had always heard about karma. I thought it only applied to tattling or to calling the police on your neighbors. You know, what goes around comes around, kind of thing. This could be bad. I have to be nice to people.. This may be a problem. I was told once by a professor that I am “snarky”, which of course I took as a compliment.
My son was helping me with the tire on my car one day. Once againI said something “snarky”. All of sudden I made a wheezing noise and my son turns around to look at me. “I choked on my gum,” I croaked. There it is again, “Instant Karma”.
One some occasions it isn’t even instant. It sneaks up on you the next day or could take weeks. Just know, it will happen. One day I was very irritated at work. As we were locking the front door to leave I told my co-worker that I was going to call in the next day. Anyone that knows me, will attest that I rarely miss work. I was just blowing off steam. However,the next morning I was so sick I couldn’t even get out of bed. Wow, me and my big mouth. These are just three instances that I recall. How many have I forgotten? Why, oh why can’t I control my mouth? Now I know what Karma is and she is a bitch.
