“I was sitting in a bus once, and we came to the railroad tracks. There were cars between us and the next red light so if a train came, we’d be stuck until it had passed.
Then the light turned green and the bus went across the tracks without having to wait for a train.Phew, crisis averted. Then, behind me, a mother says to her small child, ‘That was too bad, we didn’t get to see the train today.’
That was the perfect way to frame that. Why not enjoy what you get?”
