Man Proposes, God Disposes
And in my case, the Devil Counterposes.
Proposal: I shall mail these two giveaway prizes off to Venezuela and Malaysia respectively and they shall arrive in two weeks.
Disposal: 4 weeks and they have not yet arrived.
Proposal: I shall purchase this camera over the internet.
Disposal: My choice shall suddenly go out of stock and I shall not be informed.
Proposal: I shall mail this package to the US and it shall arrive in 4-6 days.
Disposal: The package shall stay in the sorting office for 6 days.
Proposal: I shall work on Sleepy Hollow.
Disposal: Perhaps not.
Counterposal: Why not work on Cirque des Cercles? Isn't the red pretty?
