Regret

Posted on Monday, January 28th, 2013

Dave!I once told a woman "You're only beautiful on the outside," because it was the meanest thing I could think of saying. She had hurt me, you see, and I really wanted to hurt her back. Unfortunately, she completely misinterpreted the comment and took it as a compliment. On the surface, it seemed like a total insult failure. But the more I thought about it, the more I realized that I had scored a crushing victory. Not only did I call her an ugly human being, I apparently did it in a way that this vain moron wasn't aware... thus sparing me from the regret and bad feelings that inevitably follow after I say something mean to somebody.

Except, in this case, any regret would have been short-lived.

This woman went on to do some pretty heinous things to a surprising number of people. She truly was an ugly witch, regardless of how nice she looked on the outside.

This had me facing regret of an entirely different kind. I regretted that I hadn't clarified my insult when I had the chance. Opportunities missed and such.

That was years ago.

This weekend I discovered that she had eventually become as ugly on the outside as she was on the inside.

As in, yikes.

So do yourself a favor, kids... have a good heart so you can stay beautiful at your core and not be eaten up with ugliness from the inside out.

Oh yeah... and stay away from drugs. Because, holy crap can they do a number on your looks.

    A Christian friend once told me that he doesn’t believe in karma. Here is proof that it does exist!

    What goes around eventually does come around, and once in a great while you actually get to see the karmic outcome. It ends up a joyless victory for me, though. Inevitably I feel sad for the person even if they “deserved” it. Which is probably how I get suckered into so many bizarre situations.

    I’d rather be pretty on the inside. Guess eh got what was coming to her.

  4. Sarah says:

    It sounds like she got what was coming to her. And your insult might have to be the best insult I have ever heard. Maybe it’s because I’d rather be thought of as a nice person rather than just pretty, but that’s just me.

    “Beauty fades . . . dumb is forever”. (a quote from Judge Judy. The same can be said about mean. Best to get that under control before it becomes permenant. !!!

  6. I really enjoy looking at those before meth and after meth pictures. It’s hard to imagine why people would want to do that drug, or many, after seeing those. Yikes!

      Score one for you and Karma. It’s really too bad it’s not more obvious when someone is a vicious psychopathic douche bag (like in the StarWars universe/games) then you could just steer clear of them in advance.
