    Default "It seemed like a good idea at the time"

    On a fairly frequent basis, I realize I made an unwise choice in life. Some are small, some gargantuan. At times, I know I had the suspicion I should have chosen differently, but often it really seemed like a good idea.

    ex. : I thought it was smart to buy a bag of 5 avocados, the price was so good! Those little suckers are expensive.
    I now have 4 1/2 ripe avocados to consume. I love them but so rich..

    ex. : It was brilliant to double the recipe! Except it wasn't!

    ex. : I got married before I turned 20. That one was a doozy. I feel sad that the baby me made that decision. Had a lot of repairs to do.

    I was pondering the 5 lb papaya sitting on my counter and decided to make a thread. I hope it turns out to be a good idea.

    It can be healing to talk about our pain. Has anyone else purchased unreasonable amounts of produce, or ...?

    *settles in for an interesting thread*

    Ok, first, I laughed at your story about the avocadoes. I too purchased 4 or 5 a couple weeks ago because they were ONLY A DOLLAR!!! and I was planning on adding them to my morning smoothie... however, I didn't want to consume an entire avocado each day so I tried to stagger it......... and was soon dealing with 3 overripe avocadoes and no desire to eat them.

    on your marriage idea.

    For me I blame my entire senior year of high school and college years on where I am today..... basically not being where I want to be. I am sad over what baby me decided back then as well. I had the option for a full ride in college if i chose "food science" as my major with a guarenteed job after graduation. i also got into college with enough AP credits that I had an entire year fulfilled before I even started school. what did i do with that? i switched majors 20 times, started 10 different majors... and it took me 5.5 years to graduate with an ok but far from stellar gpa... with a fairly useless english lit and creative writing degree.

    sometimes i think if i could build a time machine i would go back in time to strangle myself. oh noes! paradox!

    anyways, i don't mean to take over your blog with my problems.

    @Saturned, yes, I saw it.

    But yes, we shoot ourselves in the foot don't we? We also shoot other people in the foot sometimes.

    The papaya was NOT delicious! Very disappointing. I have had it before and though odd, it was pleasant. This one was unripe but threatening rot, very annoying. Trashed it as unworthy of digestion.
    My avocados are perfect, but as you say, an avocado a day is a bit much. Hmmm, do I remember you having some Galaxy Guacamole recipe? I can eat a sleigh full of that!

    galaxy guacamole:

    avocadoes
    cilantro
    cumin
    black pepper
    salt
    fresh garlic
    white onion
    serrano peppers
    fresh lime juice

    i stick the avocadoes in whole (they get mashed enough when you hand mix)... i mince the white onion, slice the serranos fine, and chop the cilantro as fine as i can... i add LOADS of cumin, salt, and fresh black pepper to taste. i also add a ton of garlic.

    enough lime juice to prevent it going brown and to add yummy flavors... but not so much that it makes the guac watery.

    i don't measure anything, i just go by taste.

    Ooh Owly is this your blog? I'm bringing my comfy chair, Andrew Bird cds and snacks.

    I've done my share of less-than-smart things too.

    I took some ridiculously difficult courses in my first year of uni only for the thrill and challenge of it, in spite of the warnings from upper-years. I learnt some interesting life lessons that year.

    Anyway, I love your thread idea!!

    Blog??
    Thank you for coming and bringing such nice accompaniments.

    School seems to be a common rethink. I think many of us would handle it differently if we could. What else you got?

    I've done so many things like this that I don't even like to think about them, much less post them. Ne can quickly lead to what appears to me and anyone reasonably intelligent as sheer idiocy. Fortunately, Ne also helps me compensate or get out of the bad situations I put myself into, but it usually requires Ti to come to the rescue.

    I know! Fedex Overnight me 2 of the avocados! I'll pay for the shipping!

    ^ see, a "seemed like a good idea at the time" decision already getting started!
