1)Regret from not doing something that you probably should have done.
2)Regret for doing something you probably shouldn't have done.
Almost every time "regret" comes to my mind I think of The Last Unicorn.
Unicorn: I'm a little afraid to go home. I have been mortal, and some part of me is mortal yet. I am no longer like the others, for no unicorn was ever born who could regret, but now I do. I regret.
Schmendrick: I am sorry. I have done you evil and I cannot undo it.
Unicorn: No. Unicorns are in the world again! No sorrow will live in me with that joy... save one - and I thank you for that part, too.
That is an interesting theory. Being thankful for regret. Why is it that we like to be sad sometimes, and we don't want to be cheered up?
Do we sometimes subconsciously force ourselves to do something to regret, so that we can experience sorrow?
Maybe it is something we naturally do, so that we can vent out those repressed feelings and need an "excuse" to let it out.

Life is too short to beat around the bush.

Above picture is my "home-made" costume. It makes me a little over 7 feet tall. Pretty scary for a 5 year old.
Yes, that is Michael Meyers looking down from upstairs.
Above are creepy spiders and a killer clown named "Simmons".
It isn't halloween without a graveyard.

I just got back from the doctor today for the 1st half of my physical. Since I have started my exercise regimen I've lost 15 pounds according to the doctor, in the last month or so. My BP has improved from borderline to good.
I'm sick and tired of being... sick and tired. I've made some good progress. I'm about 6 pounds away from my first target weight goal of 380. I topped out around 415 to 420 pounds. I lost track after I got past 400, because my scale screams "ERROR" past 400. (My doctor's scale goes to 600.)
My 2nd target weight loss goal is 360. I'm not perfect with my diet. I'm not perfect with my exercise. However, I am more consistent than I used to be.
I would like to look like the young Arnold instead of the old Arnold. But either Arnold is better than Fat Bastard.

I like to use metaphors to get my point across.
So I told Matthew, "When you make Nolan cry, it affects your Mom and Dad mentally and physically. It is like taking your fingernails and scratching the surface of a chalkboard." I motioned my fingers going down the chalkboard and cringing.
I got a blank stare. Deb joined in, "They have dry erase boards at schools now."
I thought for a second, and because I recently had a flu shot I decided to use that as the metaphor.
"Ok Matthew, making Nolan cry is like getting a flu shot. Instead of getting one of those thin needles you get one that is an inch thick."
