F is for Fickle

This post is part of the A-to-Z Challenge.

F is for Fickle, changing your mind easily and often (definition from

When I find myself being fickle about something, I have an internal conversation.

Self 1: What should we do today, plan A or plan B?

Self 2: Hmmm, plan A sounds like fun. So does plan B. What do you think?

Self 1: Oh dear, I don’t know; I can’t decide.

At this point, I tell Self 1 and Self 2 that a random decision (enni meeni minni moe) will be made. And if there are no objections, that will be the plan to follow.

Self 1: Let’s do plan B!

Self 2: I don’t want to do plan B.

Self 1: See, you did have a preference; you just didn’t know it. Plan A it is!

Sounds silly, huh? But it works for me.

BTW – who remembers the Flying Fickle Finger of Fate?

  1. I often end up deciding that I can’t decide and doing nothing.

  2. It’s funny that we were both thinking about the Flying Fickle Finger of Fate award! Well you know what they say about great minds…

  3. I guess you already have a winner on your question….

  4. Your internal conversation sounds like a hoot. How on Earth do they decide anything between them?

  5. I, too, remember the Flying Fickle Finger of Fate. Boy, am I dating myself!

    And that’s how you spell “enni meeni minni moe,” eh? 😉

  6. I remember the Flying Fickle Finger of Fate! It was from Laugh-In, wasn’t it?
