i just posted earlier this week about what the boy cheekily said, that he couldn't wait for the next funeral (to savour peanuts served at wakes).
and then......2 people passed on 2 days ago; a brother from the chinese church & a doctor colleague. suddenly, the cautionary remark that one should be careful what one wishes for because it may just come true, became very real.
that, i'm not really worried about but what is playing at the back of my mind now is the common belief that things or events invariably occur in threes. even shakespeare reflected on that sentiment when he wrote in hamlet:
when sorrows come,
they come not single spies,
but in battalions.
now, i wonder if there will be another demise to complete the triad?
