Impetuous! Homeric!

Ok that’s a line from The Quiet Man..but I like it and it fits.
That’s me. I get an idea into my head and act on it. No matter how half cocked or hairbrained, I go and act on it and make a fool out of me and everyone around.
No details, but what I would like to know is this:
Have you ever done something stunningly impetuous, that seemed totally like The Thing To Do at the moment, and then suffered consequences later, I mean really Homeric consequences…the kind where you honestly think probably the best thing to do is crawl under a rock and not come out for a good long time?

See, I get the feeling sometimes that I’m the only person in the world who really screws up. Sometimes I get a hair brained idea and it honestly seems like a good one at the time…

Tell me you’ve done that and survived, ok?

    I do at least 2 stupid things before breakfast every day, and have screwed up several things in my life so badly I am not sure why I even go out into public. You are DEFINITELY not alone.

    Definitely not alone. Tell us, and we can tell you that it’s almost certainly not as bad as you’ve built it up to be either….

      oh I dunno Tracey…it’s pretty bad. Survivable tho, provided Terry doesn’t just get fed up and make me live in the shed, tho I’d probably survive that too.

    1.Giving my mom a nervous breakdown by fleeing to Belgium a week before my wedding, and living under an assumed name.
    2.Driving a metaphorical nail in an ex-boyfriend’s heart by strolling through the cafeteria clinging to Robert Harris’ arm. In fact, dumping the first guy and dating RH at all…
    3. Marrying because I thought my friends wantd me to (and finding out years later they were actually trying to get me to dump him).
    4. Buying a house in the country because my hubby said he loves owning land, and would happily be a househusband while I pursued a career.
