Day 3117: It’s never what you expect

I expect that I’ve written a previous blog post with this title, because I often say “it’s never what you expect.”

You probably expect some images here, but maybe not these.

That last question received some answers you might expect and also some others you would never expect.

When I search YouTube for “it’s never what you expect”, I unexpectedly find “It’s Never What You Expect and Everything All At Once” by Noé.

I would have expected there to be at least one reaction to that on YouTube. Yes, it’s never what you expect.

You might expect gratitude at the end of this post, but maybe not this: thanks to all who appreciate this blog more than I expect, including YOU.

  1. I expect more dark clouds and loud storms today, Ann. Yeesh.

  2. No truer words.

  3. With you I never know what to expect

  4. I expect that this video will make lots of people smile, and some cry!

  5. I’m going to say that everything is life is not what you expect, even death. I did not expect that I would have the crazy week that I had, but I do expect to write about it.

    Wouldn’t it be nice if something were better than we expected? …

  7. I never know what to expect from life although there are days when I’m glad I’m still not working in my office because I surprise even myself by saying, “What fresh Hell is this?” when something new pops up.

    • I sometimes say “what fresh hell is this?”when the phone rings and I’ve always really wanted to put that on my outgoing phone message, but that might be too unexpected for my callers.

  8. The best dream I ever had? I’m living it! ❤

  9. I love the misanthropic cat cartoon.

    “A thing long expected takes the form of the unexpected when at last it comes.”- Mark Twain

  10. For years my husband said he didn’t expect anything, and that’s how he avoided disappointment. I thought that was too bleak for me. I’ve come around to think this may be a good way to go after all!
