I’d include that feeling of helplessness when you think you’ve figured life out,
you’re content with your current existence/life pattern/failure
rate/car/job/attempts to change/whatever, and you appear to be acting under your
own volition when *WHAM!* something from COMPLETELY out of the blue wriggles in,
yells “Boo!” and screws up all of your ideas about why things happen the way
they do.

Mother Nature DOES play dice with the Universe. Sadly, they’re loaded.
