That question throws me into existential crisis.
Was it because Oscar tipped over his milk,
Emma needed that thing signed,
the extra minute I took in the shower?
Or maybe it’s deeper
I should have woken up earlier
or gone to bed earlier
or gotten married at 25 instead of 19
certainly meaning that I would have at least one less kid
and a higher earning potential
allowing me to hire a maid.
I usually answer: “Poor life choices.”
