In Spain there is a very used expression that says "Dar una de cal y otra de arena". The literal meaning of this is like "Give to someone one of lime and another of sand"; the figurative sense is about when you recive both good and bad things at the same time or consecutively, like have a prize and immediatly later, a punishment for the same thing or because something.
Personally, I think that these defines life: when you think that something is going ok, flows good, then suddenly something happens that makes shit everywhere, everything.
Is it maybe the same as Karma? Do we deserve punishments for every prize we own?
