Decisions Decisions to Make…

 

So tonight the wife and I were faced with our first tough decision as a married couple.  A momentous decision for sure.  Who should pay for the first round of travel groceries?!?!  After a couple seconds of “You? Me? You?” two mature college educated professionals in their 30’s decided to settle the quandry by playing Rock Paper Scissors…in Publix…in the checkout line.  Personally, I think it’s a brilliant way to settle a dispute.  It’s inherently objective.  There’s an equal chance of both participants winning.  What’s the downside?  All marital issues should be solved this way.  Baby names, dinner, investments, whether or not to go to Ikea.  Everything should be on the table.  The fact that Kaia isn’t that great at playing has absolutely nothing to do with my enthusiasm.  The fact that I won tonight, and envision many more wins, is completely irrelevant.  I just have to convince her that this should be the preferred method of problem solving for the duration of our marriage.  At any rate, the honeymoon is off to a great start.  God bless objective decision making.
