a new kind of blue

I just wanted a new pair of jeans, but I looked at too many pairs. Too many shades of blue, too many different cuts, none of them Quite Right. One pair was worth $560, another $60. It didn't make much difference in the end, 'cause I couldn't see myself wearing any of them (visualization's a curse). This is what I call Toxic Option Syndrome (taken from some really old cartoon in a computer magazine, possibly even in the 1980's). Life was so much easier when I wore black all the time, when buying a new pair of jeans meant going down to a shop and buying another pair of black 501s the same size as before. I guess I'll just have to relax, and try again later.
