A regret of epic proportion

How could I have let this happen?

I should have known better. I am not a stupid woman. I am 33 years old. I have four children! What was I thinking?

If only I had reached out to someone. If only I had told someone what I was about to do, what I was planning. I know someone, somewhere would have warned me. Would have taken measures to protect me from myself. Would have intervened before it was too late.

I'm not even sure how it happened. Clearly, I wasn't myself. I was obviously suffering from some unseasonably-warm-weather-induced delirium. Or caught up in some uncharacteristic optimism brought about by vacation planning. I didn't consider the significance of my actions. I couldn't have imagined the magnitude of my mistake. I wasn't prepared for the far-reaching effects of my impulsiveness.

I tried on my swimsuits

I can so identify! Don't you just hate the sideways view!!! The image of comic strip Cathey comes to mind.

Oh dear, please call the authorities - you need to be committed. Its MUCH too early (133 days to embarkation at our house). There's plenty of time to lose more - not that I've started losing, exercising or anything yet - IT'S STILL WINTER - what's the matter with you!!!

Thank goodness, you just saved me from capitulating to my swimsuit urge.

This is sheer madness. Why was there no intervention?

Thank heavens you at least didn't do this heinous act in a *gasp* dressing room of a department store!

You should have called me. I would have talked you down.
