Life’s antics are curious to watch. And sometimes cruel.

You spend weeks and months dreaming of something you want, and Life holds it at an arm’s length away from you, till you finally get fed up of your fruitless attempts to get it and give up with a firm decision never to long for it again. A day later, you find it hanging about your ears tempting you to reach out your hand. Your interest slightly revived, you gently raise your hand and then, weeeez! it speeds off again.
