I FREQUENTLY ACT ON IMPULSE.
because it’s true; I do frequently act on impulse. I sometimes regret it, but often I don’t, so I’ve never found it to be a major problem. I was thinking about this earlier today and that sort of led to the conclusion that we should all come with the warning labels they put on electrical equipment, sharp instruments, and heavy objects.
Mine would say:
WARNING! Will argue
It would save us all a lot of trouble if we could just size up potential friends immediately. We wouldn’t have to wait six months to see how the friendship will develop or if it will develop at all. We’d just know right away if we were compatible. And if it we aren’t, okay, so what? No time wasted, no love lost. Just keep on moving until you find someone who is.
I originally was going somewhere deep with this, but I’ve forgotten now exactly where I was headed. Maybe it’ll come to me. While I’m thinking, you be thinking, too. What would your label say?
Edited (01/01/2011): I want to point out that this was written during a very dramatic phase in college. I can't bring myself to delete it, because I so vividly remember being that girl.
