An Everyday Mantra for Head Cases Like Me

That thing I did earlier?

I don't know where that came from.

I didn't mean to do it.

I didn't plan to do it.

I surely didn't intend for you to see it.

Oh, I could tell you what was going through my head when I did it.

From where I'm sitting it made perfect sense.

But from out there where you are...probably not.

And you can't come in here to see.

No, that wouldn't be a good idea.

So you're left with not knowing.

And I'm left with knowing too well.

I'm not apologizing for that thing I did.

But I'm sorry you got hit in the face with it.

Bad thing, bad.

I should come with a warning sign.

But you already know all my warning signs.

Fat lot of good they've done you.

So, that thing I did?


Repeat whenever I do something inexplicably boneheaded. Which could be daily or even hourly.


You're thinking it, you may as well type it. The only comments you'll regret are the ones you don't leave. Also, replies to threads make puppies grow big and strong.
