The minute I read this question!
Surprises should be avoided in life and if you see one coming run the other way. Unfortunately we do not always have that option. For example I read this question before I could stop myself and it is impossible, so far as I know, to 'un-read' a question, unless you close one eye and read it upside down perhaps. That might work. Let me try it....
Aha! I have been un-surprised by the question! My method works. I no longer stick to my first answer to the question. Indeed, I am no longer surprised by the question, nor do I even recall what it is.
Do I hear the dinner bell?...must go.
