Life is like a Quarter Machine...

Life is like one of those quarter toy machines in front of a supermarket.
You go for the plastic capsules, hoping to score that awesome neon green alien inside. You can see it through the glass, but the chances are slim. You try anyway- I mean, you could luck out, right? So poses the question: do you keep trying for what you want or settle for the boring, but comfortable, bouncy ball in the other machine? I've personally always been that girl who wanted more quarters.
And so, I had a dichotomy while walking past one of these machines this morning. Bouncy balls or aliens?
