We spend so much time worrying about minor events we cannot change. “There’s no use crying over spilled milk” is a wonderful idiom to explain that notion. ‘Spilt milk’ feels just a bit more poetic to me. Crying over the loss of a loved one? Different matter entirely – major event. What if both occur at the same time? Makes for an interesting juxtaposition, all swaddled in a modern take on haiku. Yeah, I’m a nerd.
