4. I wish I were deliberately bad.
Edited on Tue Jan-15-13 12:06 PM by No Elephants
Someone told me the other day to give something my best shot. I wanted to ask, "Have you ever seen me give anything less than my best shot?"

Okay, I could do better with my posts at DU. For example, I could proof and use spellcheck.

But IRL, there is very little that I don't try my best at. Not saying I do well, but I do try my best. Even going to a movie, I am trying to make sure I don't miss a word or a nuance or a theme or whatever.

And, until a few days ago, when I was told to make my best effort, I never gave any of the above a second thought.

I thought this morning how very exhausting it is to always try your best and how tired I am of trying my best.

Would I even be able to, at this point, give something less than my best shot?

I am not sure that I know another way to approach something.
