Your Mission Should You Choose to Accept

So Mongolian Girl's comment got me thinking.
"Just a few nights ago I lay awake in bed in a state of insomnia brought on by remembering a horrid act I carried out when I was in my late teens. I was full of embarrassment, shame, self-loathing and regret as if it had just done it moments before."
I think we all have had a moment or seven that we regret, or wish we would have handled differently. Maybe we hurt someone else, maybe we hurt ourselves. So maybe you don't have to dig to the deepest cringe-worthy moment, it's up to you. But do you have a memory that hasn't entirely resolved itself? Or maybe you've worked through it but you still think about it. I think these would be interesting to read, and perhaps cathartic to write and read. I'm going to go work on mine.

This message will self-destruct in five seconds. Good luck Jim


  1. I probably have had these moments, but thankfully I drink a lot to forget LOL

  2. I accept this mission. Anything to get one more shit covered cobweb out of my head and into the light of exposure. Doing so always seems to take the heat out of it.

  3. I'm fixing to kill somebody. Does that count?

  4. Oh, that's good, stuff we are planning to regret. Tell me more.

  5. RT--I avoided imprisonment by feigning a upset stomach and coming home from work to make lasagne. No murders today. But my coworkers were out of control with the picky passive-aggressive bullshit.

  6. If there's anyone I would like to know is being held on suspicion of murder, it's you, Dear Elder.
    And no, I don't know why.
    Plus, I am convinced you are cunning enough that you would be released due to lack of evidence.
    You seem like a solid planner and scene scrubber to me.
