This is interesting.

That picture really doesn’t add anything to this post, I just thought it was funny. I searched for “confused,” and that’s what popped up. The prompt for today is “afterthought,” according to the link you see below, but on The Daily Prompt’s calendar page, it’s listed as “retrospective.” Neither words mean the same thing nor are used in the same way. A retrospective is something that causes you to look back at past moments or events. It could be in the form of music, the written word, a PowerPoint slideshow, a movie…you get the picture. An afterthought is something that occurs to you only after something else has already happened. A person can also be an afterthought, in the sense that you could be planning a party let’s say, and when you look at your guest list, you realize you’ve left off someone’s name…but you don’t realize that until after all the invites have already gone out.

So. I hope you’ve enjoyed this episode of “What The Hell Do I Write About Now?”

    “…A person can also be an afterthought, in the sense that you could be planning a party let’s say, and when you look at your guest list, you realize you’ve left off someone’s name…but you don’t realize that until after all the invites have already gone out….” I do this — have done it twice the last 2 parties I’ve planned. It’s a terrible feeling….especially when one of the left-outs is your mother-in-law.
