Life is made up of the choices we make and the actions we take. Sometimes we are not given any indication as to which path is to be the most beneficial – we have to hope we made the right decision at the first time of asking. If we didn’t get it right, we then hope we can learn from that and not make the same mistake in the future.
Sometimes the two choices we are presented with seem to have no relevance to each other. We scratch our heads in puzzlement as we try to solve the riddle. What makes this even more frustrating is if the person presenting them to us knows the secret, or has the key to understanding, yet they chose to say nothing. We may beg for insight but all we will be met with is a wry smile. If that smile turns to laughter we know we made the wrong choice. We have provided a brief period of entertainment for them and can only watch as they then go in search of their next hapless victim. If that wry smile wanes, and their lips press closer together we have some solace in the knowledge for once, we have the upper hand.
