SIX THINGS I WISH I’D NEVER DONE:
Discovered exactly what a coffin for a baby looks like.
Gotten drunk. The two times it happened, there were consequences.
Found out what it’s like to ride in the back seat of a sheriff’s car on a hot day in bad traffic. (NOTE: I was not under arrest for anything.)
Failed to take the time to make sure my cat Princess, a female dilute calico, was inside for the night one evening. I never saw her again. Female dilute calicoes are very hard to come by, and I really loved her.
Never really got to know any of my grandparents. My father’s family were in Ohio while I grew up in California. We lived with my mother’s parents for a short time, but I was in kindergarten then and not of an age to understand or appreciate the important information.
Trusted someone I believed to be my friend with two key roles in the planning and preparation for my wedding. I don’t know if her failure to deliver on both the bridesmaids’ dresses and the wedding cake was due to personal dysfunction or deliberate sabotage. I suspect a mixture of both. I’m a veteran of “The show must go on,” so it did, just not quite as perfect as I’d hoped.
(Well! This was fun! I think I need ice cream now.)
