That’s right I said it. I AM THE BOSS IN MY HOME, well OK that would actually be when Vi is not home. As the boss of my home, I MAKE ALL THE DECISIONS AROUND HERE, well OK, that is most often after I have been told what I have decided. I have heard a song that goes on about that sort of thing.
Here is an example of how the boss of a home operates. Recently, “someone” suggested to me that our kitchen needed to be updated, cabinets, flooring the whole thing. Acting on that suggestion, realizing how things were going to go from here. In my capacity as “boss” I realized an executive decision was needed. So, “I” decided our kitchen needs remodeling. In a similar fashion, “I” picked out the cabinets, counter top, flooring etc., well OK, it was after I was told which ones “we” liked. OK, there we have my attempt at humor.
Actually, Vi has wanted to redo the kitchen for a while now. She has been watching and has found some great sales, so we are going ahead with it. She has shown me at least 3 or 4 samples of just about everything you can imagine, asking which one I like the best. I do seem to have the uncanning knack of always picking the one that is 3rd. or 4th on her list. I defer to her choise for a couple of reasons. Firstly, she has good taste and I know what ever she picks out will look good when it is all done. Secondly, it just isn’t that important to me if the counter top has gray tones to it or blue or green or what ever. Actually, I really don’t care. I guess, maybe, it is the banker in me plus the fact that money is not that plentiful that dollar signs are the only thing that prompt my involvement.
I have a very scientifically based fact to state. A “Bill” statistic scientifically researched from a sampling of 2 males. Myself and remembering a conversation I had with my brother a while back. Now based solely on the results of this sample, I can say 100% of males do not really care that terribly much about what color the kitchen is. I do realize there may be exceptions to this “Bill” stat.
In fact I may have seen one. I went with Vi to the counter top place. There I did see a young couple in what I would call a quite animated discussion over the selection of a counter top. I have to just ask myself, why?
Using this as but one example, think about it. Think of the big picture of your life. Over all, how important really is it what color shades were in a counter top? Now that is unless we make it a big deal in our minds. I think this applies to almost everything in our daily lifes.
