Event:  Stapler jams for the billionth time while stapling manuscripts to hand out at Wordos.

Lightning fast thought process:  I should finally get around to buying a better stapler.  But I only use the stapler for Wordos manuscripts, and the majority of Wordos seem to read manuscripts on electronic devices now.  But if I move to Seattle and have to start a new writing group, then it won't have a website where we can post stories for each other unless I learn how to create a website like that.  But I don't know how to make a website like that, so we'll have to use paper manuscripts.  But I can't staple paper manuscripts with this stupid broken stapler.

Irrational conclusion:  I'll never be able to create a new writing group, because my stapler doesn't work.

Resulting action:  Slam my hand against the desk, scattering loose sheets of manuscript everywhere and severely bruising my thumb.
