It seemed like a good idea at the time…

Everyone’s been there. You made a decision that seemed perfectly logical, but looking back you wonder what the heck you were thinking. To ease the pain of having to waffle over those tough life choices, I’ve taken the liberty of laying out a few potential cases of things that may seem like a good idea at the time…but aren’t.

1. Driving under the speed limit–Don’t do it. It’s a bad idea. It makes people angry and you’re only going to encourage perfectly sane people to consider nudging your bumper as a friendly reminder that you should speed up or get off the highway. Driving slow is also un-American and, yes, that’s a word. I’m sure George Bush will back me up on that.

2. Buying in bulk–This is only a good idea if you have an immediate family of 17+ members, more than one adolescent son, or if you own a restaurant. Otherwise just say no to that 5 lbs. bag of pita chips, the year supply of Cod  Liver Oil supplements, and the bag of 36 rolls of individually wrapped toilet paper. Buying these items in bulk will only drive up your gym bill and your friends will make fun of you for storing that much toilet paper for one person. Not that I know from experience or anything.

3. Eating during a marathon–I don’t understand the 5K’s where you have to eat a dozen donuts or a pint of ice cream half way through the race. Everyone knows you shouldn’t eat an hour before you swim, so why would it be a good idea to gorge on junk food half way through a marathon?

4. Drumming while driving--A little more on car etiquette…The other day in my rear-view mirror I noticed a man whip out two translucent plastic sticks and proceed to drum on his steering wheel while at a stoplight. He put them away when the light turned green, but just the same, that’s an unnerving sight to see. I like to car dance just as much as the next person, but let’s try and jam out in the car responsibly, people.

First dates, Tom Cruise, skinny jeans…things I find both awkward and amusing Rocker hair…part deux!
