#AtoZChallenge: You can’t always have what you want.. (tiny tale #32)

“Stop crying. I won’t buy you the balloon. You have to learn that you can’t always have what you want”, said the mother to her daughter.

“That’s true”, the orphaned balloon seller thought to himself.

Author’s Note:

I’m busy preparing for an upcoming exam. (Brushing up on four years worth of engineering subjects is tough!) But I promise that I’ll reply to all those wonderful comments and I’ll catch up on all your blog posts that I haven’t had a chance to read soon. My schedule is way too hectic now! Sorry. 😦 Do keep reading and commenting. 🙂

  1. One suffers a minor disappointment, and the other goes hungry as a result of the mother’s lesson for her child. Life is not fair, but if the mother had been more compassionate, she might have used buying the balloon as a lesson in charity.
