Opposite Girl

I’ve come to the conclusion that I am the “opposite girl.”

Why? Well, I will tell you why.

I said I was leaving a social networking site, but that lasted for a day. What’s the point of saying I’m going to quit when I know full well it’s not going to last?

I went on a diet to lose the 9 lbs. I gained during a year of COVID lock-downs and ended up gaining 4 lbs. Who goes on a diet to LOSE weight and ends up gaining weight? Apparently, I do.

I need to stop seeing one of my many doctors because I just don’t like him, and he creeps me out. What did I do? Made an appointment to see him this coming week.

See what I mean? Opposite Girl.

So, from now on I will just keep my mouth shut about what I’m going to do and then quietly do the opposite.

For instance, I am not going to lose weight, I am leaving a social networking site, and I will keep seeing the doctor I don’t like. That should do the trick.

Ta-da! Just do the opposite and all will be right with the world.
