1: Unfortunately, the fire in the fireplace is dying because I don't want to get up and stoke it.// Fortunately, at the precise moment I typed that, my husband made me get up and do it (it was my turn), so it's now crackling merrily.
2: Unfortunately, I have to do a concert that I really kind of don't want to do this afternoon. // Fortunately, it'll make people see that I actually DO some of the things I say I'm going to do.
3: Unfortunately, after the concert, we're taking my son and his 3 best buddies to Chuck E. Cheez for his 8th birthday. // Fortunately, they now serve WINE.
4: Unfortunately, the soles of my feet and my heels resemble those of a person who had been lost in a rocky desert, barefoot. // Fortunately, all those calluses makes it easier on me when I go outside in the mornings to get the newspaper, and there is lots of frost on the grass.
5: Unfortunately, I forgot (while de-decorating from Halloween) to put away the dancing, singing vampire decoration thingy that has been on my mantel for a few weeks. // Fortunately, .... hm. I'll just dress him up like a pilgrim for Thanksgiving?
