Guess Again

For all of my life, but especially in the past few weeks, I've been a bad guesser. I push on doors when I'm supposed to pull; I try to predict which elevator will respond to the beckoning push of the button; I lock the car door instead of unlocking it; I accidentally walk into the wrong restroom (only twice, but still); I switch answers before turning in tests; I try to dress myself before looking outside or checking out the forecast; and don't even get me started on my track record with paper, rock, scissors. I'm wrong about 77% of the time, every time.

Okay, so I'm not that bad, but I'm wrong enough that I've started to notice it. The latest guessing gamble has come when faced with the formidable lotion-soap duo while washing my hands. If I'm not consciously observing the opacity of the two bottles, chances are, I'll squirt lotion onto my hands. Fail.

Usually, I'll notice the blunder immediately after pumping the lotion; but, on occasion, I have been known to rub lotion all over my hands, only to find that the running water is powerless against lotiony hands.
