"No one promised life would be easy or that the game wouldn’t change without warning. There you are, all ready to pass Go and collect two hundred dollars, and suddenly Colonel Mustard is trapped in the conservatory, ranting and raving and waving a wrench, and no one knows what exactly a conservatory is or why anyone thought a wrench —of all things — would be a good murder weapon, or what branch of the military Colonel Mustard even served in! Has anyone seen his credentials? Well, you get my point: You’ve got one life with zero guarantees, so do your best, adapt if possible, and keep on breathing. I recommend striving for happiness, but many opt for duty and responsibility. Mileage varies. Your life, your game, your rules."
