A: No, I don’t think so.

Life’s not specific enough and we’ve always got to choose.

Choices. Hard and easy.

I mean, there’s no familiar method to this madness: either you watch one basket with many eggs a la ‘focus’ or watch many baskets with many eggs a la diversification.

Mind the apostrophes cuddling focus; you can still stay focused in diversity.

A focal or diversified dilemma, a scenario of how to expend your energies.

On family.

On career.

On money.

On marriage.

On spirituality.

On relationships.

On academics.

On sex.

On love.

On fantasies.

On etc.

Should you keep all your eggs in a basket or should you do the reverse?

Perhaps, it makes more sense to keep all your eggs in a basket and watch the basket.

Or, keep all eggs in different baskets and watch them; a matter of splaying.

Tellingly, this varies per individual.

If I say otherwise, file me in the rank of nonredeemable liars. But I’m redeemable, so don’t file me (thanks, alright?)

We can never be too sure, vivid enough with which is right.

We can choose to preach that, “You shouldn’t put all your eggs in a basket.”

Or…

“Oh! You should. Why not? Clarity. Focus. Don’t you gerrit?”

See, I don’t gerrit, whatever point that is. It’s kinda a paradox.

Not knowing which way to turn, we choose to fence-sit: the allure of not being here or there.

And that allure, I don’t know why it is what it is in the first place. When did indecision become appealing to me, to you?

The fence-sitting between keeping-all-your-eggs-in-a-basket or keeping-them-all-in-different-baskets is one that will stay a long time with humans.

It has outlived Methuselah. How old are you again?

I promise you, it’s here to stay: we’ll be caught in-between, in oscillation almost every time.

You’ll be. I’ll be.

But shall we because of that, choose to hold our eggs in our hands and in viscera, watch them…

…fall

…roll

…crack

…aqueous splat of yolk

Then, we scream and go all up on regrets?

I hope not… that we choose to; that I choose to; that you choose to.
