It just occurred to me that we haven't covered any ism-s yet. Well, what better day to start than today? :)
R is for: Resistentialism
Resistentialism sounds like the belief in some sort of resistance. If you've been following this blog's A to Z challenge, you'd already know that would be too obvious. Resistentialism is much more sinister. It is the theory that inanimate objects demonstrate hostile behavior towards us. For example, you pour yourself a nightcap and jump in a nice bubble bath . . . and the phone rings. Or when you're reaching for a light switch you've flipped a thousand times over, but in the dark, it seems like it keeps dodging your blind hand. Or this is classic. The traffic lights always seem to turn red when you're in the biggest hurry.
Resistentialism is the honest belief that these objects really are out to get you and that the seemingly inanimate are anything but.
So time to share. :) What inanimate object/occurrence makes you question your level of resistentialism? I used to have a car with a faulty security system and sometimes wouldn't start because of it. It always seemed to happen when I was on my way to work, LOL.
