When bad things happen , the tendency is to dismiss them with a "that's the way the cookie crumbles" or "that's how the ball bounces". If something really bad happens we rely on "shit happens". Where does that leave us if our favorite cookie is one that does not crumble, or if the ball is a football? What if one is prone to constipation? When bad things happen it is best to dismiss them with a "that's life", because that's what it is.
