Pride before a fall

I don’t plan to go into details but yesterday, I made a stupid decision. And by stupid, I’m talking six foot high capitals letters in neon colours decorated with flashing lights. FUBAR comes to mind.

What I should have done was to ring a friend, explain the task that needs doing, and see if she would be able to help. But no… I went it alone and then when it all went horrible wrong, was forced to ring said friend and not only ask for help, but also to admit that I’m a complete dufus, something she really didn’t seem too surprised about…

The problem is, the mistake I made could have all sorts of consequences and can’t be quickly fixed.

Which leaves me with nothing to do but worry. And ache in several different places. And attempt to work out how I came to make such a bad decision.

Note to self: always ask first.
