When the expected finally happens
you may feign surprise, or even
mild anger or some disquiet,
but all will know it is only an act.
When the expected doesn’t happen
you may be truly surprised,
of even angry and frustrated,
and all will understand at some level.
When the unexpected happens
the full range of emotions is then
laid open before you and you
may choose as the mood hits you.
But when the unexpected does
not happen, any response you
make will be seen as absurd, so it
is best to just ignore it totally.
