i have a theory that those are the most dangerous words in the english language.

think about it, almost every mistake in your like can be summed up with the phrase:“it seemed like a good idea at the time”

my first marriage could be and has been summed up with those fateful words. i`m not slagging off on my ex-wife, she`s my best friend and we both agree, we shouldn`t have gotten married, but [say it with me] “it seemed like a good idea at the time”

and it applies in a global context as well, take your pick from the headlines:

Kobe? [all together now] “it seemed like a good idea at the time”

War in Iraq? [you know you want to] “it seemed like a good idea at the time”

i could go on but you get the idea. i think as we get older we learn to recognise the signs, we at least i think i have, maybe this post is an indication that i haven`t quite worked it out.

you see when i first though about it writing it [say it with me] it seemed like a good idea at the time.
