Expecting the Unexpected

So strange things happen, it's a rule of life right? If you expect something to happen, chances are it won't. I have noticed this to quite the extreme in the last couple of days.

Take two days ago for example. I went to get a haircut, at least that's what I asked for. And a haircut is what I got... as well as an hour long facial, complete with facial massage, peel-off face mask, exfoliating lotion and yes, skin whitening treatment. Makes your skin whiter in only 15 minutes! And after an hour of trying to convince the hairdresser that I really did not need the pampering or the added cost, I gave up and completed my treatment. Needless to say, I may be going to the 10 cent a pop hair-dresser around the corner from now on.

So the facial was unexpected, slightly amusing, slightly pricey and definitely unexpected. But today's surprise might just take the prize. I woke up this morning to a knocking at my door. There stood a young man who asked me if my name was Steven. When I replied in the affirmative, he proceeded to tell me that he was moving in. No mistake, he was in fact living in my room. Brother Frank apparently sent him to live with me, and I am now with an unexpected roommate. Not an iota of warning whatsoever. I am slowly starting to realize that was has become expected after 8 months should not be, and the unexpected should always be expected to occur. I just hope that the unexpected doesn't get much more intense than it already is!

ecaeP. (Did you expect that!)

I visited Bangladesh a year an a half ago on an exposure trip. I was delighted to find your blog! I would love to chat with you if you have the time? Do you have an email address?
