There's  an  opinion  that  life  is  a  chain  of  lost  opportunities, 
but  I  wouldn't  agree... 
Life  more  resembles  a  supermarket,  the  counter  of 
which  is  piled  up  with  really  various  opportunities... 
And  you  walk  along  it  and  add  those  attracting  your 
attention  to  the  cart... 
The  only  disappointing  thing  is  ...its  expiry  date  is 
only  some  time  away...Sometimes,  even  before  you  think  it,  it  - 
the  end...  gone...  But  actually,  it's  nonsense. 
As  far  as  I  know,  new  goods  are  served  every  day...
