#One-liner Wednesday – choices, choices!

Should I have a freshly pulled pint of golden ale or an ice-cold gin and tonic?

This was my dilemma yesterday evening, after work. Now that I’m free to visit our local pub for the first time in 6 months, what should I have to drink?

Also on the dilemma list, what should I wear? Pubs are limited to outdoor service only. I’ve yet to encounter an outdoor space heater that works beyond a few feet. So, should I opt for wind proof hillwalking gear or dress up (wear thermal undies) and put on a little make-up?

In the end I opted for hillwalking gear and a full face of makeup… and to drink? A beer, followed by another beer. I’m keeping the gin for Thursday night when we go back for our dinner date! Yippeeee!

SocS – Decisions, decisions!

Thanks Linda for this cool prompt – Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “choices.” Base your post on the subject of making small, uneventful choices. Enjoy! Thank you, I think I will enjoy this one.


Do I hit the snooze button or get up? It’s Saturday so snooze button it is.

Museli or full English for breakfast? Well, I’m still a couple of pounds up after Christmas so maybe museli [polishes halo].

Trainers or DMs with the rose pattern up the sides? Which ones are easiest to get to in the chaotic wardrobe disaster area (see JusJoJan 31st)? Both! As I’m feeling a tad sassy it’s got to be the DMs.

And lastly, which gin to have a gin o’clock? The double award-winning gin or a favourite from Cornwall? Oh, and which tonic to have. And even more decisions – what fruit to slice into it?

It seems we spend our entire days making small, uneventful decisions. Although the gin decision and its related sub-decisions could be more eventful that they seem!

Whatever you decide, have a happy Saturday!
