Two Is One, And One Is None

Murphy’s Law states that “whatever can go wrong, will go wrong”.

Last week I was working outside in the beating sunshine. My skin burns quite easily, so sun cream was going to be needed. On leaving the house, I saw some near our back door and asked my dad if we had some in the van.

“Yeah. I always keep one in the van door.”

“Are you sure?”


As you would have guessed, that day there was no sun cream in the van. We both thought there was, but my mum had taken it out after a walk at the weekend.

Next time I’ll take one spare, just in case. Two is one, one is none.
