Aside: Regrets



Regrets suck.

Sometimes the most effective way to push an idea is to juxtapose the delivery with the character. Here a powerful, intelligent, driven young woman needs to convince her boss not to miss out on a personal opportunity. So she tells a story from her own life and ends it with the line above. To punctuate the tale with that line works because the person hearing it is a billion dollar business owner. The casual language strikes at the heart of the individual and slips past the professional barriers.
