I really took this habit with me, too. It still hibernates in my everyday life. Whenever anything happens in life, no matter how monotonous, I meticulously monitor the scenario and try to find the moral; the solution.
That's why I don't understand when tragic stories, non-fiction at that-- seep into our lives, no one seems mesmerized-- no one remembers to mull around for the moral.
I can even mash this sadly missed moral into 3 words-- complete with alliteration.
Call it a moral, call it an equation; it equals an unlearned lesson here.
No, they don't learn, they run back to the disaster and let it drown them to the point where they can never submerge the same.
