Writing Prompt: Disappointment

Writing prompt As a child I heard people talk about "the ball dropping" on New Year's Eve. The first time I saw it happen, I was horribly disappointed, because I had supposed it would be a giant ball in free-fall, crashing into the ground. The reality did not live up to my expectations.

Can you think of a time when something similar happened to you? For one reason or another your expectations were greater than the reality, and you were disappointed? Write about the experience. Can't think of one? Make one up!
