Cmon'...what was it for you ......women, wine, or WORSE!?

D. All of the above.

Does fine dining go in the WORSE section? In Manhattan it was downright apocalyptic, especially when women and wine were also involved.

I'd love to go back to 22. It would be cool to be able to raise my boys twice.

Re: What If?


Let's see... 22 would have been my senior year of college...

I would get my masters degree in theatre or at least persued a career in theatre straight out of college so I wouldn't have to be trying to break back into the field after 5 years.

22 was kind of the low point of my life. I think I'll just leave it in the past.

Go back to 22? I am on my way to becoming older and wiser because I survived being young and dumb more than once.

Pulled out of wh....oh!

Can be slightly overrated. It seems sometimes a few of them little soldiers tend to march ahead and set up ambushes.

Or never really even thought about it too much....at all (see further commentary). I didn't really consider the future at all. Only the kid part that I regret. Knowing what I know now....I would've started sooner.....but maybe it wouldn't have gone so well????

To look back now, it is crazy bat-chit nuts.

Living in Va. these days, I can see how that would be shocking to a lot of people.

Although that would have been about the time I was selling my tanking Gateway stock and wanted to by Apple at like 5 dollars a share. My broker said, " I can't let you throw your money away like that, you need to buy Lucent"

No need for me to go back, not a thing I would have changed.
