Why do certain situations hurt so much? It it because we're faced with unexpected circumstances which delineate us from the hopes we once had? Is it because we feed on momentary clusters of pure ecstacy at the thought of what such moments could mean for the future? Are we ever able to prevent ourselves from wanting something so badly that failing to attain it would result in depression and bitterness?
So ummm....next season then?
