Me: I had to buy a box of different coloured straws. I don’t like that.
Also Me: What’s the problem?
Me: It’s just one more thing to think about. I have too many decisions to make in a day already. It’s exhausting!
Also Me: It’s just a colour. What difference does it make?
Me: None, but it’s still a decision. The fact that there are multiple options still means I have to make a choice, even if it doesn’t seem like it’ll make any significant difference. I just don’t want to give myself any more to think about than necessary.
Also Me: Then don’t choose. Just reach in without looking and pick one at random.
Me: Okay. (picks one at random)
Also Me: How did it go?
Also Me: Why terrible?
Me: I got yellow. I wanted blue.
Also Me: Oh for crying out loud!
This conversation between you and also you is incredibly insightful. Thanks for sharing. (I prefer blue to yellow as well.)
Thank you 🙂
Well, the actual internal dialogue is a bit different, but that’s how I would write it as a sitcom. My emotional responses and my need to reason everything don’t always find a common ground. The results can be entertaining.
I love your outlook.
