Ask Baba Yaga: Can I Do Something Reckless and Selfish Without Suffering the Consequences?

Transcript after the jump.

Dear Baba Yaga,

Is it ever possible to indulge a passing fancy without destroying a solid reality? Must all reckless, selfish actions have dire consequences?

BABA YAGA:

You cannot ; always , be wanting to wear a Wedding veil & not desire to lift it & see which boars do run. For that, you must count yr arrows & yr strength & the tension of yr bow. A life of , letting the bowstring go Slack is a limp & bitter one. So sweet is the boar-morsel, & truly how solid is the reality of a veil?

Perhaps veils can be sold with a warning label: May Also Have Dire Consequences.
PS: beware the tusks!

@gulleyjimson Yes! Boars are really dangerous: they gore people. Take no risks. That's my motto.
