There are key moments in every person's life at which a decision is made that affects their lives from there on out. And not all of these life-changing choices are big deals. I'm not talking necessarily about the more notable things in life — which college to go to, keep the baby or not, quit the job or stay, move to a new town or stay where you're at.
No, I mean the things that don't seem critical or crucial until after you make the decision. Or until days or weeks or months or years later.
What if ...
... I would have stuck with my training regimen from ninth-grade football throughout high school when I moved to Guam? Could I have played at a big-time college program? Could I have made the pros?
... I didn't try to be the tough guy in front of my friends and had just let that insult slide? What if I had avoided that fight that fucked up my shoulder? How much pain and suffering would that have avoided?
... I had kissed her on the night of the dance instead of being afraid and just driving her home? Why didn't I ask her to be my girlfriend first?
... I would have ignored the woman I met online who turned out to be a total nutjob lying opportunistic greedy whore instead of hooking up with her for far too long?
... I would have met a certain person a year earlier? What if I had done more to make that work? What if I had made sure she visited me before him?
... I never had gone to the strip club that night? What if I had never offered her a place in my home? How much money would I still have left? LOL
... I had gone to the wedding?
... I had jumped in the pond that day in grade school? Would I have rescued him? Or would I have drowned too?
... my mom and I had left a couple hours earlier to pick up Pop? Would we have been on time to save him?
It really doesn't pay to think about these kinds of things too often or too deeply. But sometimes I do.
The early HNT from GUAM!
Yes, it's Wednesday for most of you. But for me it's almost Thursday. Enjoy!
As if! LMAO
