Why do some things always go together?
Sometimes both are good
sometimes it's a mix.
This week's Ten Things Tuesday is about when one thing happens, instantly something else does .
You realize that as soon as you have your check, it's already spent. On bills.
2. Looking for something

You wake up on a day where there is no school and no where to be. You just wake up, look at the clock and think " Holy crap, I'm late". Instantly awake, you drag yourself out of bed and leave the room. Once you are up, you realize you don't have to get up today.
