Here's an old node (copied from Node Heaven) I created on 2000-07-23 03:40:43, as "regret it in the morning (thing)":
Things you will regret in the morning: Take a girl home with you, when you've drunk so much and slept so little that you won't even be much of a one-night stand.

Especially if your place is such a mess that you'll look like a slob to her. (That is, "...that she'll find out what a slob you are".)

ESPECIALLY if she was so damn nice you think you might have wanted something more lasting; if you were trying to get her for a girlfriend.

No, no, why ever would you think I'm speaking from recent bitter experience...
Turns out I didn't blow it as badly as I thought back then: Yesterday was our son's seventh birthday, and we've been married since 2007.
