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?
