Paying for one night

I should know better by now right? Yes, I should.

A couple of nights ago I lay down, closed my eyes and began to drift into lovely nothingness and then my eyes popped open. I hadn't taken an enema. I closed my eyes again and so began the internal and very private conversation:
I will go in a minute.
Maybe I don't have to go.
What could one night hurt?
It shouldn't make a difference.
I am so tired.
I am so comfortable.
I should go.
I can't get up...

That was the last thought and then suddenly it was morning.

I have been paying for that dumb decision ever since! Do not skip a night. Do not miss your enema. Do not pass go. Do not collect $200.
