If you could go back in anytime in your life...and change one thing.  What would it be and why?

I am feeling pensive today so humor me.

Nothing really. I actually thought about this for a good 15 minutes and I wouldn't change anything. Except changing the fact that my mom passed away, but I don't think that is what you were getting at.

I wouldn't change any of my actions. Right or wrong, they led me to where I am.

I would hunt down Barrack Obama, Sr. and give him a condom.

Karen I am so envious. There are dozens of things I would have done differently.

I would have continued to date Mary Eber instead of letting peers talk me into bailing out of the relationship. Would it have changed anything, I don't know but I know I would have been much happier and would have completed college back in 1980 instead of finally graduating in June 2010.

The ovary revolt. Not surprised are you?

I think I would have held off on marriage and maybe something a WHOLE LOT better would have come into my life. Of course my sweet daughter was a definite benefit of that union so I have mixed emotions.

Christine said... turn.

1. I would have lived at home, received my phd in literature, not married so damn young and dated the honor student/ football player that was chasing me in high school. I turned him down for a machinist with a cuda convertible. Dumbass.

2. I wouldn't have taken SCM back after he moved to NY and would have resisted his pain and worried more about mine.

3. I wouldn't have gotten involved with a man four years ago that turned out to be the most selfish person I have ever met and didn't deserve my time, let alone my heart.

4. And last, I would have married the doctor I dated between husband number one and husband number two who was boring but secure, romantic and sensitive.

The good news is every day is a new beginning and a chance to make better choices.

Funny - I was absolutely just thinking about this during my last cigarette an hour ago.

I would have gotten more involved in High School instead of being scared that I wouldn't be accepted. I was 100% afraid to throw myself 100% into anything. I think that has fostered a half-assed attitude about a lot of things in life. I just have never had the courage to go for anything with everything I have.

Sorry. You asked.

I wish I hadn't made work such an important part of my life in my 20's and 30's because now at 41 I am burnt out on the whole thing and maybe I would have a wife and kids and a reason to go to work! Now I have achieved all I can here and its only more of the same till the day I die

Razor, You my dear are a good catch even at 41. You have interest in a successful company, you're smart and witty and you seem to want to treat a lady well.

It ain't over until it's over. At 41, a family is as close a a decent woman, some romance and not fucking it up like so many guys do.
