Choose Your Own Adventure

There is a fork in the road up ahead. Which way do you go? Left? Right? Right takes you to page 45. The road is washed out, and you and your car float on downstream to oblivion… Luckily, you were smart and kept your place in the book so that you could choose the left fork; page 67. You find a pot of gold under a rainbow and live happily ever after.
Wouldn’t it be great if life were like those “Choose Your Own Adventure” books that we used to have as kids? Do they even still make those? That’s beside the point, but really, I’m sure everyone out there at some point has made a totally idiotic decision.. Then wished that they had paused to consider said decision for 10, 15, 20 minutes.. “If only” is a tough thing to deal with. “If only” life was like a book, where you could look ahead to see the consequences of your decisions.. then choose accordingly. “If only” you could take back that stupid thing you said, or did.. I guess it’s all part of life, learning from mistakes and moving on.
