It feels like a lot of my waking time is spent justifying the if-this-then-that equation. Here’s roughly how it goes:
- Oh, that ___ is a GOOD deal.
- What would I do with ___?
- Come up with a lame excuse.
- I can’t imagine how or why I have lived without ___ for so long.
Current case in point: there’s a set of speakers that arrived earlier this week which are waiting to be hooked up so I can listen to music in the living room. Because I listen to music in the living room so much, so often, so what? Really? That’s the best I could come up with on short notice.
These conclusions seem like a good idea at the time, even when they’re not. Brilliant, eh?
