Yesterday Princess Nagger came home from school and asked:
“What’s the stupidest thing you’ve ever done in your entire life?”
I was actually stumped. I pondered the question for a while, and could think of a few things that might be considered ‘stupid’, like marrying the cheater, followed by marrying the abuser – but those really aren’t something I want my 9-year old having to listen to (yet) or talk about with her friends at school. I can’t say they were stupid at the time, but sure, in hindsight I’d probably label them that way.
So I pondered it some more, and thought maybe it was the time me and a group of friends were skiing on Crystal Mountain with our bota bags full of alcohol draped around our necks. After a few trips up the ski lift (which is when the bota bags were brought out) we were a little buzzed and decided it would be a great idea to attempt a black diamond run.
It should be pointed out that all of us were were nowhere near advanced in our skiing.
Some might consider it a stupid decision, particularly after I missed a turn and went tumbling halfway down the mountain – on my butt. Then got stuck in the hip-deep snow attempting to retrieve my runaway skis and put them back on my feet in a not-so-graceful manner. Unwise to go buzzing down a black diamond slope while buzzed, sure, but stupid? Yeah, probably. At least it wasn’t a wipe-out as bad as this was going to be:
Aside from those few possible ‘stupid’ things, I can’t really think of anything that would be the ‘stupidest in my entire life’. I’d like to think I possess a modicum of common sense, thereby assisting me in avoiding stupid at all costs.
Or it’s mind over matter and I’ve blocked them all out. We’ll never really know will we?
Which brings me to this week’s question:
What’s the stupidest thing you’ve ever done in your entire life? Princess Nagger wants to know.
Have a great weekend!
