  4. @thoushaltnotsteel, the good news is fewer boys are being forced into that surprise.

  5. I was tempted to say that a few less surprises would be fine, but as you point out life itself is the surprise so... The more the better.

  7. Cause the world is a surprise. Everything looks different than the dark bubble we were in before birth, then colors and noise and other people....If only the surprises in life could maintain being seeing a tree for the first time or watching an ant, or maybe just looking at the clouds are they rush by....Having all these new beautiful things seen for the first time...

  8. Increasingly, I experience things as delightful or awe-inspiring rather than surprising...

  9. "Being born was a big surprise" ...it made me laugh anyway!

  10. You're right! I like thinking of it as 'surprises' rather than 'challenges'...
