So we did that.
I then spent something like 2-3 hours online looking at different phone cases because apparently that is a much more important decision than whether or not to get a new phone.
I'm trying to tell myself that people regularly lose that much time on Pinterest, so this is no big failure on my part. But still.
Did you know that there are cell phone cases that look like saltines? And ice cream sandwiches?
I didn't go with any of those because I'm not twelve. And I may use this phone in front of clients who might think twice about hiring a writer whose phone case is shaped like a big bunny. Which is a valid concern.
Plus, a lot of the cute cases would stop being amusing after a day or two. Like the etch-a-sketch, or any of the Hello Kitty designs.
I finally decided to stop trying to find something for $2 on Amazon and blew some birthday money on a nice case on etsy. But then once I picked the case design, I had to make choices about the type of case (rubber or plastic), and then I decided that I really should look at the artist's other designs just in case, and what the hell is the matter with me?
It would be so much easier to decide if I were the sort of person who had several phone cases, just for fun. But that's not me. And I don't want to be that person. Because then I'd have to decide which phone case to use each day, and the only reason I'm wearing earrings most days is that I sleep in them.
Please tell me you understood where I was going with that last sentence.
What decisions do you agonize over?
