We were looking for a base to put the sword on the wall and I stumbled upon a collection of fridge magnets (I’m addicted to). I figured I could spend about USD 10 so I got the most different among them that I didn’t have in my fridge already. My partner turned to me and told me “Do you really need that?”, I said “No, I don’t” , left them where I found them I went on pissed off.
Questions I asked myself later:
1. Why I was pissed off? At me for buying something on impulse? at my partner for censoring my impulsive urge?
So let’s analyze that impulse urge. Do I need more fridge magnets? Probably no, they are mostly decor and I rarely post anything to the fridge these days. So why I liked those? There were multi-colored geckos like the ones back at mother’s house. Anything else: They were beautiful and would had look great “walking” on my fridge now that there aren’t more geckos in the city anymore.
So, if I had the chance to reply my partner’s censorhip what you should’d said:
No, I don’t need them. My soul does.
And then, that’s another whole line of reasoning we need to check. 22 months ago
