All box and no chocolate

A friend of mine;s blog made an observation about life being all box but no chocolate. The blog came a few hours after watching an episode of Buffy called, Lie to Me.

At the end of the episode Buffy asks her watcher if life is more simple as you grow up. He asks what she wants him to say and she responds, "lie to me". He responds thus:

Yes. It's terribly simple. The good guys are always stalwart and true. The bad guys are easily distinguished by their pointy horns or black hats, and we always defeat them and save the day. No one ever dies... and everyone lives happily ever after.

It is a simple truth that life can and will be difficult at times. But i'm afraid that as of yet, i still believe that even if the box does not hold chocolate, it is still a box and there is something of facination inside.

And in the case of low-quality chocolates, sometimes the box is nicer...

That said, I think life's often not what we expect it to be - sometimes we're pleasantly surprised, other times if it was something we'd bought, we'd be demanding a refund.

Not that it's a bad thing, just an observation. Keeps things interesting, I s'pose.
