Regrets that I Rue-minate Over

Vegan SpaghettiOs with Meatballs — 86 Eats

I regret not traveling more and seeing for myself what hotel rooms look like in other states.

I regret exchanging harsh words with my brother when I was young, because all the harsh words I knew back then were pretty lame.

I regret wasting the three wishes that the genie gave me on Spaghettios.

I regret every time I told my children I was too busy when I could’ve said, “LEAVE ME ALONE FOREVER” just once.

I regret not trying more exotic foods… like potatoes, for example.

I regret not kissing more pretty women but they punch so HARD…

I regret photosynthesis and I wish I’d done more to stop it.

I regret telling everyone that I’ve read The Iliad because now I don’t know if they like me for ME.

I regret nearly all the times I used the word “bicameral” although it did save my life that once…

I regret not coming up with a tenth item for this list…

      1. No, it’s really well written, but about 3/4 through there’s a twist, and it just turns the whole thing into a depressing nightmare

      1. I had two siblings and we always squabbled. When my mother gave up Spaghettios with meatballs, she had to count out each meatball… and cut a meat ball into thirds if necessary… I still buy a can of them from time to time. And, the meatballs…ARE ALL MINE!!!!

      1. I can do about thirty words a minute if I’m on a roll. Went from a large high school to a small one my senior year and I had to take a typing class because that was about all they had left for me to take…

      2. We didn’t have typing classes at all (well, except for those optional night classes) if we were taking the academic stream. I must be older than you (61). Or it makes a difference, coming from a very small, rural province (??). Even in university in the early 80s, I submitted all my papers neatly hand-written, double spaced 🤷‍♀️ I really didn’t need to type until they introduced computers into our workplace in the late 90s. THEN I regretted not taking that course, although honestly, it doesn’t slow me down too much anymore (I do glance at the keyboard more than a trained typer would: I think that’s the big difference).

      3. You are EXACTLY my age, although better preserved…

        I didn’t need to start typing until my senior year in college when I was creating engineering studies for a Unit Ops class. We lost five points for each misspelling and, on the day one was being delivered, I was told by someone that my spelling of “bottom” was wrong, so I had to white out a bunch of e’s and add ‘o’s longhand. A weird hybrid of typed and not typed…

    1. I thought about one where I regret pushing the lead singer of the Beach Boys off a roof without checking to make sure he’d fall on the rest of the band because I thought it might be too dark…
