Who could have ever thought of life as a shopping spree at our favourite mall and its agonies and conflicts reflecting back at us in the trial room.
Trial rooms.
I hate trial rooms
 I love shopping.
But I hate trial rooms.
Although trial rooms were invented exclusively to assit shopping,
I feel the two are contradictory !
We here are informed that , Not all the joys of the world are meant for everyone. So perhaps it’s better and wiser to appreciate what we have. Things often do not turn out as we expect them to.

Toll-ing the bell of joy.
Let’s go home.
Caring through sharing.
