Decisions

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?

Me: Terrible.

Also Me: Why terrible?

Me: I got yellow. I wanted blue.

Also Me: Oh for crying out loud!

  1. This conversation between you and also you is incredibly insightful. Thanks for sharing. (I prefer blue to yellow as well.)
