Not Quite …. How many times and things and even places have you fallen short of ? You buy something convinced it was just what you needed then to find out it was ” not quite ” right ? It missed by the smallest margin and you then either have to return it and get something else or exchange it for the right size etc. You were so convinced you had measured it right or sorted it right but then found out you only just missed it , don’t know about you but I get so mad at myself when this happens because at the point of purchase I was so sure it was right Arrgghhhh !! lol Now don’t try and tell me you haven’t done the same thing as I would never believe it for a minute . It would be a fib I think if someone said they had never done something like that as at some point we all have .
Then there are the times you are going somewhere , you look it up , you plot the route , and off you go but when you get to where you were going ?? Ooppps missed it !! Not quite where you need to be so you have to either go back a mile or so if it’s a driving miss or jump on a train or a bus and go back a few stops or forward a few as you just miscalculated by this much || lol so frustrating and infuriating you were again so sure you had it all sorted but you didn’t . So off you go again to the shopping or travel or entertainment thing you were going to and miss out on the best seats etc . because you just didn’t quite get your route right Arrrgghhhh !! lol again !!
How about when you enter a competition like a quiz night or something like that and you go to it with a will and then you find out you miss out on the big prize by 1 or 2 questions , so once again it is ” not quite ” but at least you had fun right ? Lol not the same thing but true anyway and there are so many ways we just miss out on doing or going somewhere by the tiniest margin that if you stop and think about it can make you mad , so easier not to bother thinking about it lol . Much better to try and get it right next time so we do not once again have a ” not quite ” moment . To be fair it is not always our own fault we just miss , sometimes it is the information we were given was ” not quite ” right in the first place . Also some of the runner up prizes are really neat anyway so all is not lost is it ?
I think the thing that would make me most angry and frustrated would be if I was silly enough to buy a lottery ticket , and find out I was only 1 or 2 numbers from a great prize !! That would infuriate me more than anything else because like most people I would have worked out way in advance what I would do with the money and then to not be able to do any of it would just make me mad . Lol as I know the odds of winning anything even remotely useful on the lotteries this will never happen to me ” not quite ” as silly as someone might think lol , I mean why bother when the odds are 18 million to 1 ?? Rather keep my money for more useful things wouldn’t you ?
On the brighter side of the “not quite ” plane is sometimes when you get to a place that was not quite where you were going it can be a very nice place and you can still have a great day and try again another time for the original place . Or something you bought that was again not quite what it was supposed to be can turn out to be useful for something else you need to fix or sort out so it’s not always a problem . The lottery thing tho lol no way to soften the blow there , you just didn’t get it right and there is no way to soften the blow for that , much more better to not get a ticket than suffer the inevitable anguish of losing .
So what else gives us a ” not quite ” situation ? Well husbands for 1 , lol they can be all at once so loving, so helpful , so cuddly , so frustrating, so annoying , you know the rest of the phrases needed here lol any married woman does for sure . There are so many times you just want to kick them right up the clacker they make you so mad , then about 5 mins later they do something to show you how much they love you and what then ? Grrrr lol can’t kick em up the clacker then can you ? They are worse than kids at times , kids do it and you expect it but husbands are NOT supposed to make an art form out of it !! Lol but they do and they do it so well the sods , so 1 min you love them next you want to kick em , seems to me you just can’t win lol how many times have we heard people say this ?? Now we know no matter how much we want to we can not even do a ” not quite ” on them no matter how much they ask for it Arrgghhh!! lol
So husbands aside or yes to be fair wives too if we take the male position ( but we won’t ) lol there is a lot of the not quite situations in every day in every way you never know where or when . We just have to try and make sure not to have too many of them , especially if we are cooking !! Lol must have the cooking correct or we could all be very sick and we don’t want that at all , no matter who might deserve it or for what reason .
People who talk to themselves are awesome . Did you know that? Yes, I did know that. Thank you for asking.
