Regrets

I read a post the other day that got me thinking.  Yes, that means my head hurts and there’s smoke coming out of my ears.

I really wondered if I have regrets because I’ve tried to live life without them.  I did decide there are a few and I will share, or partially share.

  • Ruining a friendship where I had more fun in a few years than one could hope for in a lifetime.  This may be one of my only ‘real’ regrets.
  • Not taking the chance and going ‘downtown’ Tijuana to party with the locals when I was there for a wedding.  Yes, I said a wedding.
  • Not hitchhiking before it was dangerous.
  • That night with….oh wait…ummm…a couple of…..hmmmm…well, perhaps I’ll leave it at that.
  • Not going to concerts at Paisley Park after bar when I had the chance.  I never did see Prince in concert.
  • Eating that potato salad even after it bugged my tummy the first time.  Uff da.
  • Not going ‘parking’ enough as an adult.  Good make out sessions are definitely a thing of the past.
  • Not taking voice lessons, although I’m the world’s greatest singer in the car, everywhere else I can’t carry a tune in a bucket.
  • Not laughing more.  And I laugh a lot, sometimes even when I shouldn’t.

It is my belief that you can’t live life with regrets, the choices we make form who we become.  There really is only one true regret in my list but if that wouldn’t have happened I wouldn’t be where I am today so all turned out well.

Here’s to no regrets and lots of laughs!

Funny Video

This might be the funniest video I’ve ever seen.  There are several people in my life that this reminds me of.   I love how he is not helping her at all, in fact, he’s in his own world, I’m glad to see that doesn’t go away as we get older.  Enjoy.

I found this video thanks to another blog on WordPress.

Moments

I read a post this morning that was one of those ‘I’m not alone in this world’ realizations.  Makes me feel so much better that others have those ‘moments’ that we’ve all experienced, yes boys, even you have those moments, I’ve seen them first hand.

My advice to all………find the humor in them when they’re all said and done.  Makes for a great story.

Summer Movies

I read a great post today. My favorite listed is The Sandlot.  I find it hilarious.  I use several one-liners from this movie…..no sense recreating the wheel, right?  Here are a few of my favorite lines:

You’re killin’ me Smalls!
You play ball like a GIRL!
FOREVVEEERRRR
He had kissed a woman and he had kissed her long and good.

It’s a must-watch along with the others on the list.  Please do yourself a favor and have a movie night.
