Expectation; an outré insight

“It’s the silly things that hurts”
“Like ?”, I asked.
“Being human”, he pelted without a thought.
“Why so ?” I asked, as I couldn’t suppress my curiosity.
“I wanted Doritos, but mom brought lays home. I thought i’ll get to eat Lays, but i didn’t. So i got all sad. But look at Pluto”
He threw a handful of chips to Pluto, and beackened him to eat it. Pluto scampered to site, and frantically mouthed it all with no time to spare. And stood there wetting his tongue and wagging his tail for a few more.
“See, i told you”
I rubbed my eyes and looked at him again, he was still my seven year old nephew, who gets 11 as sum when 1 and 1 are added.
