It seemed like a good idea at the time

That is one of my favorite excuses for someone doing something dumb. "Why did you set your shirt on fire?" "It seemed like a good idea at the time." "Why did you light the street on fire?" "It seemed like a good idea at the time." "Why did you decide to do jumping jacks at 4 in the morning?" "It seemed like a good idea at the time." Actually, between 3 and 5 in the morning, almost anything seems like a good idea at the time. But that's just my experience. And the look you get after giving that excuse is priceless.
By the way, EOW, this post is dedicated to you.

i totally know what you're saying! like waking up at three in the morning to go around a dorm stealing 150 (jappy) girls' shoes is totally a good idea-at the time.

so is going around your neighborhood and putting smiley faces on everyone's front doors

I have a good one. Verizon digs up the street doing repairs. Work is finished so they gotta clean the street, it is Manhattan. So, in the middle of winter with below freezing temperature outside, they open up a hydrant and rinse down the street and sidewalk. It seemed like a good idea at the time, though now it's a nice big skating rink.
