stupid is as stupid does

Today’s Reverb prompt:
What is the stupidest thing you did this year? What about in your whole life? You can take stupid to mean: embarrassing, dangerous, funny, lame, whatever you consider “stupid.”

I’m going to go with the this year part of this question, because in my whole life? I’ve done too many stupid things to count and I really don’t even want to try to think of even one of them. So! This year! It’s a good thing that it’s the end of the year, so maybe I won’t do anything stupid for the rest of the year? Ha! Yea, I can’t even say that with a straight face. I can’t think of one specific stupid thing I did, so I’m going to list a couple.

1. I didn’t take any photos with my real camera while we were in the hospital when Preston was born. Our computer was out of commission and I was annoyed because I couldn’t upload the photos if I took them. (I know I should have thought ahead to the time we would have a computer, but I was short-sighted.) Noah and I took photos with Noah’s iPhone, but they’re, well, iPhone photos. Noah took a picture of me, Preston, and my doctor right after Preston was born, but he kind of cut off half her head.

I wish my mom had been closer so that she could have been there to photograph things like she did after Liliana was born. I also wish that Schmutzie lived 2.5 hours closer so that she could have photodocumented everything. That would have been rad. But, my mom was a 24-hour drive away, Elan was a 2.5-hour drive away, and I didn’t yet know that photodocumenting a birth was on her life list.

2. I didn’t send out Preston’s birth announcements. I gave out a couple to people I saw in person, but I have about fifty of them in a stack in my bedroom. If you would like one, let me know! Either way, here it is. I designed it myself. Okay, I made it myself in Photoshop but I totally copied the design from a certain card-printing site.

3. I got stuck in a parking lot. I’m not going to elaborate on that one, because you can read the post if you want, but getting stuck in a parking lot? Pretty lame. Almost as lame as that time I locked my baby and my keys in the van, but I’m not going to list that one.

Okay, three is enough. What’s the stupidest thing you did this past year?

    Oh the birth announcement is beautiful! Pick me, pick me!

    Stupid things? Oh, I’ll have to think about that one…there many, many, many but apparently I am in denial because I cannot think of one.

    Most recent: Tripped down a set of stairs and sprained my ankle.

    Went the wrong way on a one-way street.

    Lost my driver’s license, went to get a new one, found driver’s license which wasn’t actually lost apparently.

    Too tired to think of one, but I LOVE that announcement.
