Days to delete.

Did you ever enter a swim meet and loose your swimming trunks during the race? Did you ever walk your daughter down the isle when she got married and find out afterwords that your zipper was wide open? Did you ever stand in a tree stand while hunting. Shoot a double barrel shot gun and end up laying under the tree stand in pain? Did you ever enter a bar the next day after a night of drinking and everyone stands up and gives you a standing ovation? Did you ever pull over for an ambulance while driving. Light up a not so legal smoke, roll down the window and blow smoke into the State Troopers face that just pulled you over for running a stop sign?

I have.

These are the days I would have liked to delete in my life. Unfortunately the memories of these experiences pop up like pimples on the end of my nose; in my brain now and then. Memories I really don't like to remember, but there they are.

I have stopped drinking and smoking, over 17 years now, but still things continue to happen. I have lost jobs by joking with my bosses. Like the time I told my boss how much fun it was sneaking stuff past the guards, while working in a prison. The time I chased an Austic child threw the woods. He did not like to wear clothes, took them all off and streaked thru his neighborhood. As I tried to catch him and get him redressed the Security Guards watched and thought I was chasing him for criminal reasons.

Did you ever have one of those days? Please let me know. Hopefully it will cheer me up knowing I am not the only one who has had days that need to be deleted, changed, forgotten, fixed or just wished never happened.

Chumly, I've had days like that-, but I've deleted those days and I can't remember what exactly happened 'cause they've been deleted! Also I have a poor memory anyway, so that made it easy. I have a terrible time holding a grudge-I can't remember what I was angry about!
Thanks for posting to my blog-that model and dress are hot!

I have had MANY days like that.

I have tried my best to live and learn and try not to be full of hate and bile like I was a few years ago. Though sometimes it's tough.

I am too tired to post a proper response now. Perhaps more Mon.

We've all had those days Luv. Some we can look back on and chuckle while shaking our heads and saying, "so young so stupid." While other times we can only grimace.

So in effort to at least make you smile: Have you ever found youself in Burger King wearing nothing but the paper crown sitting on the counter having it done your way? Alcohol and youth, they NEVER mix well. The police were kind enough to just take me home.

I of course have never entered another Burger King again. Live and learn, and try to block out the fact that security cams catch everything.

Hi, thank you for dropping by my blog...

I really think everyone has things they'd like to bury and leave behind.. All of us are human, arent we? Well, I have, and so does everyone I personally know...

In the end, it always boils down to this quote I simply love..

'In three words I can sum up everything that I have learned about life - It goes on.' No matter what.

Cheers

This is fuuuny! We've all had days that we'd love to delete. They make us strong, or at least interesting (and funny)...Thanks for the post.

I love to remember those days, but they really weren't so funny when they were happening.

I had my skirt fall off in a puddle at my feet while shaking hands with a man during a job interview.

I drank so much at a keg party that I ended up throwing up out of a second story window. On some people below.

I circulated an email without thinking about Mike the Headless Chicken at work. My boss's name? Yep. Mike.

There are many many more like this I'm afraid.

Hi Chumly. I really like your blog.

I have found a way to accept these memories. Once in a while they pop up and make me cringe, and then I take a deep breath and think...this is what adds richness to life. These are the deep, colorful undertones that make us glow with a color that is unique. Those poor people who have nothing to regret - they can't appreciate the good times as we can.

Or make their friends laugh and laugh.
