Daily Prompt – Shoulda Woulda Coulda But……There’s Always A Reason Stopping Ya!

Daily Prompt – Shoulda Coulda Woulda But……There’s Always A Reason Stopping Ya!
by Michelle W. on February 13, 2013

“Tell us about something you know you should do . . . but don’t.”

OK then, you asked for it.

I know I should brush my teeth after every meal but…

I like having teeth that aren’t shiny balls of mirrored glass that blind people when I yawn. No hero teeth for me.


[You have failed to take into account my mirror balls!]

I know I should see my Mother more often but…

Unfortunately there is always something more important to do like finish watching that new TV series (only a dozen more episodes to go of Season 3 but I simply can’t break off right in the middle now, that would be disrespectful to the actors and producers of the show, since they spent so long writing it) or finish my novel (when did you start it? About twenty-one years ago but I nearly have one of the plot strands locked down. Sort of. Stop giving me grief. #amwritingforever).

I know I should go to the gym but…

Exercise. Ugh – how revolting!

I know I should eat more fruit and vegetables but…

They haven’t invented any yet that taste like fried chicken.

I know I should get to work on time but…

It’s so boring there – I think I’ll enjoy another slice of time pie in my nice cosy bed thank you very much.

I know I should see my friends more often but..

That costs time, money and energy plus there’s always FaceBook / Twitter, if they ever upload an avatar I can see them every day (people who don’t are just plain lazy).

I know I should get some more fresh air but…

What’s fresh about it? I don’t live in the country and if I did, it would probably smell of po…..tpourri is what I was going to say.

Yes, potpourri.

Mixed with poop.

I know I should finish learning that second language but…

All I ever want to eat in Italy is spagbol and lasagne because I am basically Garfield in a human skin. I think I’ll take a shortcut and watch an episode of this instead – Italian’s all about the accent, the passion and remembering to enthusiastically wave your arms like windmills:-


[Learning Italian (sort of) and watching cartoons]

Actually maybe it would be easier just to brush up on my French instead, since I took it at school.

I wonder what spaghetti and meatballs is in French?

And finally…

I know I really should tidy up the garden but….

I think it looks better wild, untamed and unkempt, just like me in the bedroom 😉 That’s why I erected put up this sign a while back:-

Safari Park
