Today’s Writing Prompt: Self Control

 You wake up one morning to find out you have suddenly developed a disorder that takes away all your impulse control. Suddenly, you just can’t control yourself.
How would this get you into trouble? Are you more likely to spend too much, overeat, flirt with the wrong people, drink to excess? Something even stranger?

Well, I already procrastinate, as evidenced by this late night post, so I can’t even imagine how out of control that would get! I’ve been trying to lose weight for over 10 months by eating healthier and I think I have done that for long enough that I wouldn’t necessarily overeat, but I could see myself giving into every single craving I had. After a while of that, I would probably get back into the unhealthy eating habit and just eat whatever I felt like. 😦 Lastly, taking away MY impulse control would mean giving into the impulse to do just do what I WANT and not do anything productive whatsoever, so I would probably read a LOT because I just love it so much. As bad habits go, I think reading all the time would be pretty mild though. 😉

I would spend more money than I have bidding for antique clothes and lace stuff on ebay, then go on Amazon and buy everything I’ve been ‘saving for later’ plus lots more, and all before breakfast! It would be a disaster for my marriage… 🙂

Worth the trouble

“He couldn’t see why people made such a fuss about people eating their silly old fruit anyway, but life would be a lot less fun if they didn’t. And there was never an apple, in Adam’s opinion, that wasn’t worth the trouble you got into for eating it.” ~from Good Omens
