This is really kind of sad, because we’ve made up our minds to send one of our cats, Bucky, to the Rainbow Bridge today. He’s been ill but still walking around for the last few months, and we’ve delayed the decision to part ways with him as long as we can, but he’s gotten really bad. Frankly, we haven’t had the heart to do it.
That’s what being an adult is all about, I guess, making painful decisions.
There was an episode of The Big Bang Theory where Sheldon couldn’t decide between two different gaming systems and was losing sleep over it. When it came to decide which to buy, he couldn’t. He was standing in the store arguing with himself, and bless her heart, Amy Farrah Fowler, his girlfriend at the time, just went along with him. Mary would have said, “just buy both of them and let’s go home, you big dummy.” Would that all our decisions were that simple and inconsequential.
For me, it was a matter of which prompt to pick to write about. The official post hasn’t come out yet identifying the choices we have, so I just guessed on this one. But even then, it was like “so, I’ve picked the one about using a line from a song as the title for the post, now I just have to figure out which song it is.” And I couldn’t decide which song, mostly because I drew a complete blank on song lyrics. Finally I landed on this one.
