If Only...

Idleness and Mischief were downing pints at their local pub and complaining about the lack of jobs.

At a nearby table, Hard Work and Perseverance were in earnest discussion about their next project. Opportunity joined them and offered some ideas, but advised they employ extra staff.

Luck arrived and, seeing Idleness and Mischief, she suggested them as likely candidates. But they had been joined by their good friend Misery and were so engrossed in consoling each other that they failed to hear Opportunity calling to them.

Luck and Opportunity gave disappointed sighs and simply passed them by as they left.
