You see something and it’s magic. It behaves like nothing you’ve seen before. You trap it, you study it, you research it, you learn all about it. You try it. You practice it. You master it. You make it your bitch.

You perform the trick for other people — and it works exactly as expected. People ooh and aah — but not you. You look for the magic — and now it’s missing. It’s just a trick.

The only place you see the magic now is in the eyes of other people, watching.

It’s the worst kind of buyer’s remorse. Look at what you’ve traded away.
