Life doesn't always float on clouds sometimes, it wakes you up two hours late or it leaves you by the side of the road in a thunderstorm. It can be more of a cold shower or an empty roll of toilet paper. Life plays long shots and leaves you with kiss expectations long after the emotion has run away. It leaves you waiting and soon discovering that dinner for one has become the rule rather than the exception. And just when nothing will surprise you anymore, life sneaks up behind you and gives you that much needed hug while flashing a smile that says so much more than a smile has a right to.
