(Un)-Expected Gifts

When life gives you lemons, you should make lemonade out of them. But what if you get something that you have always wanted?

Surprised? You might wonder how often it actually happens.  For many of us, it never happens. Whatever we wish for and what we get are never related. We usually end up liking what we get rather than getting what we like.

I got two gifts, one before and one after. In both the gifts, the common thing was that I had secretly wanted to buy them, though not the exact item. Both of them were unexpected and both cheered me up in unimaginable ways. It was a great birthday on the whole.
