Cheetos and Decisions

Two nights ago, my class was canceled just as I was about to go to school. Fortunately for my starving stomach, I was two blocks away from a small town mall; I hit the grocery without further ado. To my dismay, the grocery wasn’t organized. I even had a hard time finding Oreosย (which I truly love, insert the Oreo song from the commercial). When I got to the chips section, the Cheetos in the rack were truly limited, say just three packs or so. I was about to grab the Cheetos Jalapeรฑo but then I saw the Flamin’ Hot one – I knew I had to decide to only get one.

It was the biggest decision I’ve made that day. I even called a significant guy to ask him what I should grab – I don’t trust my decision making skills, it has failed me quite a number of times already. He told me to grab the latter, I immediately questioned his choice, describing how the pack of the Flamin’ Hot Cheetos seemed tattered already. He told me to still take it, probably since he knows how much I really like it. So, I did.

When I got home, I turned on the laptop and decided to watch the awesome series Breaking Bad again and munch triumphantly on my Cheetos. I made the right choice – despite the suspicious feel of the packaging. As shallow as that experienced seemed to be, I got reminded of an important thing: Don’t settle for less just because it feels safe. Yes, some options may be a little risky, but as the cliche goes, you’ll never know unless you try.

Decisions, Decisions

      1. Hahahaha! Calories Shmalories! XD I personally do it too.

        If it’s a once in a while event, might as well savor the whole pack to settle those hunger pangs anyways ๐Ÿ˜€ No harm done in indulging once in a while. X)

  1. The most important lessons of life are often hidden in everyday experiences. You are right. Unless we find the spunk to try out something new, we’d miss out on a lot of nicer, more interesting, better things.
