A Jonah Day

1 Dec

You may not have heard this phrase, but it is one I’ve had much cause to use over the last week. A Jonah day is just one of those days where you feel like no matter what you do, nothing is going to go right. I learned this phrase from one of my favorite books of all time, Anne of Avonlea, the second book in the Anne of Green Gables series, which some people may have heard of. In this book, Anne ends up with a toothache, whipping one of her pupils, and accidentally setting off fireworks in her school house. I guess my bad days don’t really compare as well. Getting yelled at by a teacher is not so bad in the grand scheme of things. It was just a Jonah day, and there wasn’t much I could do. I can accept that there will probably be others, and I think I will be able to handle them, because you have to go through the Jonah days to get to the heavenly ones. Just a Jonah day.
