Do You Want a Do Over?

Do overs? Yes please….

Luckily, there hasn’t been anything totally major in my life that I want to redo, but there are definitely a few events I would like to be able to hop into my trusty delorean* so I can stop myself…

And thus, with you all knowing how much I enjoy a good list, here’s what I would redo…

1. Fiber One. Not that I have anything against fiber**, but I once learned that giving a huge bowl of it to a potty training two year old girl is the opposite of a good idea…I won’t say much except that there was a trail of brown and a little girl holding her tushy crying that her butt won’t stop dripping…mom. fail.

2. The ladybug tattoo. Not that I have a problem with tattoos…the ladybug tat is actually my fourth one, but I only got it because I was with a friend who was getting her first tattoo and she was starting to freak out so the artist did this one for free just to show her firsthand it didn’t hurt…

Yeah, that’s not going to be too pretty in a few more years….

3. Blue hair. Oh yeah, I thought that was an awesome idea…but I forgot when my senior pictures were scheduled for and couldn’t wash it out enough to look normal in time…so in my yearbook I’m the one rocking the bluish greenish streaks…not a good look…

4. Thongs and Zumba….both are fine by themselves…but I think the people behind me in Zumba class that had to watch me pick my underwear out of my butt every three minutes wished I could do an underwear do over….

5. My last do over moment is more of a tip for you fine fine folks. If by chance you run out of dishwasher soap, it is not advisable to use the dish soap one uses in the sink instead…trust me…I know…

What about you? What’s your major do over moment?

*doesn’t everyone have one?

**except when Eric decides to do a “cleanse” Lord help me…

The Frigidaire Gallery™Dishwasher gets dishes fully cleaned the first time, so there are no dish do-overs. Nearly half of adults admit to re-washing and/or re-drying dishes after the dishwasher cycle has been completed. To prevent dishwasher do-overs, Frigidaire® is stepping in with its new Gallery® Dishwasher featuring the OrbitCleanTM Wash Arm, ensuring dishes are cleaned right the first time.

    Shaved my head when I was 23. It was really cool – until I tried to get a job.

  3. LOL Fiber to a two year old…oh no.

    My do over would be, I once gave my daughter a package of star stickers and she decided that she would stick them on the electrical outlet in her bedroom. I figured what the hell, I have one of those plastic things that go in the outlet so she can’t put anything into it and hurt herself..I baby proofed the whole house..or so I thought.

    A little while later I hear a loud POP! and and thump and then my 3 year old screaming. I ran into her bedroom where she is sitting about 3 feet from the blackened electrical outlet with a pair of half melted/blackened metal tweezers in her hand.

    I figured out what happened right away and rushed her to the E.R. where they told me she was really lucky.

    She had seen me using the tweezers before and took them to pry the plastic thing off the electrical outlet off and then used them to either take off or put on one of the star stickers I gave her into the outlet. They current went around through the tweezers, melting them and she was probably thrown a couple of feet across the room and got a shock but wasn’t burned or hurt.

    I learned baby proofing isn’t completely baby proof.

    I’m sure I have about a zillion do-overs lining themselves up in my head, but can’t think of any of them at the moment. Just wanted to say I’m cracking up about the thongs and zumba thing… hahahaha!
