Back in the days of Singledom, my friend and I would text each other any time we made a Poor Life Decision (PLD). Typically, these revolved around imbibing just a little too much. For example, one text might read, “two glasses of malbec and I sang Journey at karaoke last night. so glad I get to work at 7:30 this morning. PLD.” Or, another text might say “started texting my ex last night and I think we are back together. PLD.”
|Nothing like hydrating after an evening of PLDs!|
However, PLDs need not revolve around alcohol or boys–they can be about anything! For example, “going crazy at Chipotle before an 8 hour road trip…PLD.” You see where I’m going with this?
My most recent PLD was yesterday, when I was home sick and decided I would watch World War Z, followed by episodes of Supernatural, then one episode of the Walking Dead, THEN I topped it all off by watching the latest episode of Sleepy Hollow. This may be all well and good, and I like to think that I can’t get scared, but watching all of this may not have been the best idea, considering Matt left for a business trip this morning. It’s not even noon and I’m already planning escape routes.
This is not the first time I have made that particular PLD. We actually started watching Supernatural right before Matt left town for five days. After that, I told him he couldn’t leave me again unless he got me a ferocious guard dog. Look how well that turned out:

Sometimes, when it comes to making PLDs, you have to make them over and over again until you get it right.
