If you won a trip to anywhere, where would you go, and why?

Ireland and England.

Ireland because I'd like to spend time looking at the old cathedrals and hanging out in the pubs. England because I have friends there who I would very much like to visit and to finally meet in person after years of knowing them only online. :)

Today, I went in to Chico's to buy some blouses to go with three pantsuits I have--a teal one, a black one, and a purple one. I found about five shirts I couldn't resist and finally decided against one. Two I knew I definitely wanted, but the remaining two I couldn't decide between. So I stood in the fitting room and decided to consult my characters.

Me: "So, Paul, which of these two shirts do you like better? I can't decide between them."

Paul: *sighs* "This is why I never liked shopping with my wife. You have four shirts here, all of which are comparably priced and of similar colours. It is six of one; half-dozen of the other. Decide and choose."

Me: "I know all that. Just tell me the one that you like."

Paul: "Oh, very well. The one on the left. It has a bold, sharply-defined pattern, and it has some black in it. I like black."

Me: "Okay. Seth, which one do you like?"

Seth: "Oh, definitely the one on the right. It's like an Impressionist painting, it's purple, and besides, I like the fish design."

Me: "Great. Neither of you are of any help. Mary Elizabeth, be more useful than these two men, and tell me which shirt you like."

Mary Elizabeth: "Don't bother asking me. I like the one over there with the flowers on it, that you've already decided upon."

Me: "Aaarghhhh!!!!"

I spent a few minutes staring at the two shirts in question, side-by-side, and I finally decided on the purple fish one. (Sorry, Paul!) Satisfied, I took them all out to the cash register to pay for them. The lady rang them up, and I signed the receipt. Then the sales lady said, "If you change your mind about any of them, you have 30 days to bring them back."

And I thought, If I change my mind now, Paul Graves will kill me! Not happening.

As I walked out to the bus stop, Aerden popped into my head.

Aerden: "Why didn't you consult me on any of this?"

Me: "Oh, I didn't have to consult you. You would have said you liked the shirt with the most blue in it."
