seaweed, spaetzle, and bacon (and re-do's, or however you spell it)

I am not kidding when I say that one of my favorite foods is seaweed. Of course, it has to be roasted until it's as crunchy as a potato chip, salted until it tastes like a potato chip, and then I'll eat it. It also took me a really long time to learn to like seaweed.
Spaetzle are a German noodle-type food that feels like a cross between Gnocchi (if you don't know what that is, there is always Mrs. Google to ask) and pasta. I liked those right away.
Bacon is...well... bacon. Not much to say about it. I think everyone in who can speak the English language also knows what THAT is.

If every person had one chance to redo their entire life, I'm guessing 99% of the average population would happily take up that chance. (Including, I'll confess, me.) Because, obviously, we've all had at least one moment that we'd like to think of as "successful" but that in truth was "a down-right shame". There is this wonderful aspect of redoing a part of your life that simply seems incredibly wonderful, to me at least. If I could redo something in my life, it would be that one time in which I chose to play cello as my school instrument. My parents kept warning me that it was a lot of, well... instrument, and that it was heavy, and that I would probably end up regretting switching from violin to an instrument like cello? I only said, "Oh, plech! Don't worry! I'll love it!" hmmm.....
What would you redo?
Love, Amelie

I LOVE seaweed! Also, it would be lovely to redo my life knowing what I know now. I wouldn't want to have to go through all of school again though

Coincidentally, I'd probably redo quitting the violin last year. And seaweed is a wonderful wonderful thing.

I'd redo quitting the piano for sure...and salty seaweed is delicious!
