One of my local movie theaters just added the option of special seats that move in sync with the action on screen. Now every time I want to see a movie with friends, I need to poll everyone to see what sort of seat they want. Worse yet, another nearby theater offers dinner with movies. It won’t be long before planning a movie will take more ti me than the movie itself.

 

Let me say it again: World, I’ll pay extra if you will please give me less.

 

I do find myself paralyzed by indecision sometimes, and resort to telling myself to do the thing I first thought of. That usually works out just fine. I’m trying to plan a holiday at the moment, and can’t decide between the 6 equally excellent but utterly different options I have thought of. If I leave it another week, I’ll have thought of 6 more. I can still remember the original holiday plan, so it’s probably time to listen to my own advice and go back to what I first thought of.
