"Should I wear the pink dress or the yellow dress?"
"I don't know - why are you asking me?"
"What restaurant do you want to go to?"
"It doesn't matter- you can pick."
Then there are times when I ask his opinion just to be diplomatic. I ask because I feel he may want to comment as it's related to the design/decor of our condo.
We checked out a few interior decor shops in Vancouver and this situation played out as it usually does.
I came across some canvas prints that I thought would look good above the bed. We still needed a focal point to fill the blank wall. The pictures were of birds - chillin' out on chandeliers and in a birdcage.
Josh will come into these shops with me, but isn't overly excited to be there. It's a bonus if the shop has a comfy couch for him to relax on while I browse.
I stared at the prints at the back of the store and ruminated.
"Will they be OK in my luggage on the flight back? Will they fit in my luggage? Will the colours work? Will I find something I like more at the next store?"
I went to the front of the store and beckoned Josh.
"Why do you want my opinion?"
"Because you'll have to look at them every day for the rest of your life...or at least a few years."
He reluctantly got up from the couch and dragged himself to the back of the store.
"The bird has a funny hat," was all he could offer.
"It's not a funny hat, it's a crown!"
