Decisions: canary or paisley?

"Although we don't often notice this, our little voice chatters away in the preceding situations. I stare into my closet on Friday morning and my little inner voice commences: Paisley shirt or the canary one? Canary. But got to dress up on Monday so canary today means doing laundry over the weekend. Paisley! And I reach for the paisley (or is it: As I reach for the paisley? Or even after I've begun reaching for the paisley?...)."
