What could possibly go wrong ? … Lol how many times we have watched Top Gear on Tv and heard these words , and how many times have we seen total disaster happen just after those words were uttered , we have seen it so many times now we just laugh and just like the presenters on that show we now yell ” don’t say that !! ” lol as we do not want the disaster that usually follows said statement . Even the other presenters on the show would look horrified and yell if 1 of the others would say it and they were not expecting it , it became almost the catch phrase of that show , as it almost always spelled trouble. Trouble was what always seemed to happen on that show anyway , with all the half baked races and challenges they set up for each other so none of them wanted to invite trouble by saying what seemed to be a forerunner of more trouble.
What could possibly go wrong can also be applied to us , how many times have we decided to go somewhere or do something only to find out it was a disaster ? Probably too many times I would suspect because let’s face it we do not have everything we try to do go right for us the first time we try , sometimes it takes a few goes to get it right . If everything went right first time we would soon be unbearable to live with as we would become so self centered that people would not want to associate with us. Failing a few times , while it is aggravating and annoying it does tend to show us we are not infallible and we do make mistakes , and mistakes are good for us as we learn from them and get better at what we are doing . ( Well we hope so ..lol )* fingers crossed *
What could possibly go wrong ? While it is a funny saying now to us who have seen it so often in a funny show it can have implications to a lot of things , in that if we do not stop and think, and work things out then everything could go wrong and usually does. Remember Murphy and his law ? Making fun of a saying does not change the actual meaning of that saying, so as well as having a giggle at it we should always try to make sure that nothing can go wrong , that we plan everything out well and truly before we commit to doing anything . Committing to doing anything before we have checked all possibilities is really just not on , we really need to think things through before we do them , sadly not many people do this and things often do go very wrong , then it is a matter of clean up, sort out , then try again.
What could possibly go wrong ? Lol just about anything , like imagine you are doing some cooking and you ask hubby to help and he says yes ok , then he only half listens to what you ask him to do and then you end up with something you didn’t want , lol a cooking mess grrrr.Also you could end up with a kitchen that smells of smoke for hours and a fire alarm going off it’s nut . That is the time you make him do all the cleaning up to teach him a lesson and to ensure that it does not happen again . Then there maybe a time when you decide you will go somewhere and meet up but the directions get a bit muddled and you both end up at different places , then have to reorganize to get together where you both should have been in the first place , lol, don’t laugh it can happen to you as well as to anyone else you know ” what could possibly go wrong ? ”
What could possibly go wrong can then as you see be used for a lot of fun or can actually cause a lot of mischief , it depends on your point of view , and it depends on how well you organize your life and the things you do . There are just so many ways we can do things that finding which way is the right way can be a challenge but if we are careful then we can with a modicum of sense get things done right. While as I said we spent a lot of time watching this program and having that phrase burned you might say into our heads that now we hate to hear anyone say it , lol, we laugh and say ” Don’t say that !” lol even to this day we still do it because we did it so often before . Amazing how some things just stick in your head and it only takes 1 phrase to set you off giggling ..lol.
What could possibly go wrong then is a phrase that has stuck and I am sure there is a phrase or 2 that you also have stuck in your heads too , lol do not deny it , it is 1 thing that does happen to us all as we sometimes have a memory that is too good and remember things we would be better off not remembering . So having left that little gem in your minds now ( hopefully ) lol I will leave you to think of all the phrases that are stuck in your heads now , and you will think of them now , trust me ..lol all of them.

My husband looks handsome without glasses. That’s why I stopped wearing them…
