A cruel practical joke
I discovered yesterday that I have been the victim of a cruel, heartless and devastating practical joke.

Or what if god forbid I were jogging in Albert Park listening to random rock songs when suddenly Bad Romance started playing. I would surely trip and fall over, possibly hurting my foot. Perhaps I could sue her for this.
