Do you realise how lucky we are now with all the choice we have from just about everything in our lives, or is it a curse as nothing is simple we have to make decisions about everything? I have been out in the garden today and I know I will have to decide what plants to buy for the pots this year, how much choice! Then I might need some new flower pots, what colour?
We had Chinese for dinner last night at Billies, have you seen the size of the menu, oh just have a pizza; how many toppings! I am going to watch some TV it’s going to take me ten minutes to go through all the channels to see if there is anything I like, no; I will have a look at the films, this may take fifteen minutes. Maybe I should nip to the shop and buy a magazine, they all look good I’m not sure which one to buy. I am going to have a bottle of wine, red, white or rosé, that’s simple I think rosé today but then the choices, how many different types of rosé? What to have for dinner tonight, so much choice in the freezer. I think I will paint my nails, what colour today? Should it match my make up, so many different colours. I fancy some chocolate, milk or plain definitely plain now what sort?
I think I will have a bath and light the candles, what colour and size should I light? The bath is running but can’t decide which bubble bath to use as got so many. While laying in the bath thinking about decorating, what colour paint should I get? Then I would have to change the towels, what shade of pink as there are so many. Sitting in pyjamas couldn’t decide between long, knee length or shorts and then what colour tonight? Maybe I will go on the internet and buy some clothes, this is going to take for ever.
I know I will do a food shop, the supermarket is so big now it takes ages to get round deciding what you want, have you seen the size of the cereal isle?
OMG I give up, my life is full of choices, help! How much time do we spend making choices?
There is no choice in the weather, I wish there was and no choice in the sex of the baby your having, what else don’t we get a choice in?
