It's ALWAYS Something....

The road which one is travelling upon.....
may be SUNNY....
 and MILD......
and EVEN strewn with rose petals.....
It may be BOUNTIFUL....
and AESTHETICALLY BEAUTIFUL.....
and it may even SMELL like HOMEMADE, APPLE PIE....
There might even be,
on this hypothetical ROAD,,,,,,
 pillows piled to the brim with goose feathers,,,,
and TURQUOISE, SILKEN SLIPPERS....
and......
CHOCOLATE.......
AND EVEN, mind you,
EVEN WITH ALL OF THIS 'SEEMING' PERFECTION.....
one, tiny detail......
one irrelevant piece of minutia......
could VERY WELL bring the ENTIRE 'love-laced' house of cards
 CRASHING DOWN 
In point of fact.....
(and this is FREQUENTLY the case),,,,
we can be having a PERFECT day.....thrilled to pieces EVEN.....
 over some gobbledygook or other......
and a STRANGER in a neighboring car at a random stoplight in a "non familiar" location......
could simply give us a LOOK that is.....uhhh.....
"less than pleasant"....
or make some BLOWHARD, Minivan GESTURE.....
((((NOTHING TO DO WITH US !!!!!)))))
and sure as the nose on my face......
OUR BEAUTIFUL DAY WILL BE RUINED.....
Right ?
What does this say about US ?
