The Shop That Lets You Rent Happiness
"This is the one." The universe assures me from behind the counter.
"But I thought you said the last one was the one." I reply.
"No." Says the universe. "I sold you that one so you would know that this, this is the one."
"Is there another one?" I ask the universe.
"I can't tell you." They reply. "It'd ruin the surprise."

This one is perfect. Bravo, sirs!
So this one is it? THIS one? If you're sure, then I'M sure.
And just like the last one, I won't doubt you, even if you're wrong. I'll go. After all, the best person to have blind faith in would be the universe, right?
Iain, u have hit the nail on the head. Light-hearted and profound simultaneously... well done :)
even though he hurt me, thanks for sending me that last one that i thought was "the one". because i know now that i'll know for sure when the real one comes around, because you'll make sure it happens. perfectly.
Once again, I understand and you understand me so well. Amazing. Thank you.
Thank you for the last one, Universe. I'm waiting for the next delivery. It seems a bit late in coming. But I trust that it will be arriving at the right moment. :)
I love the headline, sounds ironic and romantic at the same time!
I know I complain a lot about not being able to tell who "the one" is but honestly? I appreciate all the nice little surprises :) (even if they are for rent)
wonderful Iain.I absolutely love this one.
The last one was indeed the one.
This one is just the replacement and I will settle.
You are a god.
This is perfection.
Very clever, nice perspective.
There is no The One. You make it happen. Appreciate the one you have.
Pefectly written! made me read it alot of times =)
I'll take one please.
I like this one a lot. Funny how reading things like this make you rethink your own life. Even when it's things you already know.
Wonderful! Roald Dahl couldn't have put a better twist in the tale. G =]
This is the absolute perfect post to have be written for me on my 21st birthday.
To know that there could possibly be a next one.
I'm looking toward to my surprise
You have no idea how much I <3 this.
o my god. this one really got me. bravo!
This, this is my favourite one.
And so is he. The one that is.
Is there any way I can get a print of this?
