YOUR TO DO DATING FROM WAY BACK WHEN

A comprehensive if somewhat incomprehensible list of things I’ve considered you may try your hand at doing and let me know if ya a. got around (and didn’t make much success of it) to b. almost got around to (though it did not quite work out) c. never got around to (for some reason or another) d. seriously considered getting around to, well, in a roundabout way, that is (but may have regretted had you and so had not wasted your time doing what you may have wasted your time procrastinating putting it off – now how off putting would that have been?)
