  1. beautifully done..so true 🙂

  4. Wow, MMT – that’s *good*!

  5. That’s a cracker, but I can’t figure out if there is a bucket of cynicism in there too.

  6. a nice one ! it happens !

  7. Hmmm. Perhaps if they went with no expectations (an empty jug to the well, so to speak) they would not come away disappointed, as often happens. Thanks for this though-provoking post!

  8. I like the relationship you illustrate between “hope” and expectations.
