Lately, I’ve been second guessing myself more than usual. This comes with my extreme indecisive tendencies. And keep in mind, the normal amount of SG is about three times a day. Here’s my recent SG brouhaha top 5.
1. While I’m 95 percent satisfied with that Joules British rugby sweater in gray I purchased at the World Equine Games last month, did I want navy instead? (Plus, it had the multi-colored buttons the gray doesn’t). I GAVE INTO PEER PRESSURE, or rather the sole opinion of my pal. And do you see that little tag by the second button? Am I supposed to cut it off?
2. I bought hunter wellies first in navy, then returned them two weeks later for the chocolate brown. Wait, did I return those once or twice? Maybe three times? The point is, every time I look at those rubber rubies, my brain flashes back to the AWFUL INDECISION I made when I originally ordered the boots in navy … They arrived at my town house in North Carolina a bit waxy. I polled my flatmate and her male companions (wow, way to go me sounding all British.) I don’t think the guys understood why I needed such large amount of rubber up to me knees. Then I called my mom. “ You got navy?” She asked. Then my friend Liz instructed I return the navys ASAP in exchange for reds. Yeah, that’s a big jump from a neutral to a statement color. I’m wearing the chocolate bar as we speak. You heard me, dark chocolate fudge.
3. Got my L.L. Bean sunwashed canvas shoulder bag monogrammed with “WLH” in red letters. I should of got “NB” monogrammed in navy, but the sales lady seductively persuaded me otherwise. When I asked my boyfriend last week (maybe even last month) as to what letters I should pick, he provided little to no guidance, claiming I would be unhappy with my final decision regardless of the choice. Of course, when I told him I just picked up my bag from getting monogrammed, he said “how does the NB look in navy?” Gosh, honey. Thanks for your timely input. Half my fashion decisions somehow get approval or are even suggested by Jordan, but not this one. “Why didn’t you tell me this before?”
4. I like to ordering food, over and over again. Particularly seafood from an extensive selection of too-good-to-not-order-everything choices. Hello, sensory overload paralysis. Take the lobster incident. Setting, Gritty McDuffs in Freeport, Maine. I wanted the lobster quesadilla, BUT what I really wanted was the lobster mac n’ cheese. So I ordered the lobster bisque. Then Jordan ordered, then I changed my order back to the lobster quesadilla. Then when the waitress scurried away, I said, “I actually wanted the lobster mac n’ cheese.” And of course, Jordan rubbed in the joy of the mac n’ cheese when his order came out. Why do people always order better food than me?
5. I opted to take cute photos at a dog parade (for my photography class, of course!) instead of attending a networking event. I saw a puppy dressed as Blago, a dachshund as a bumble bee, a black dog in a hot pink body suit, and a chihuahua dressed as a pea pod. Darn, there went me meeting my future boss.
