welcome readers & writers! many thanks to krowles1981, AbFab and FilmGuy for your awesome responses to yesterday's photo prompt.
i'm not going to say anything at all about today's photo prompt... want your imaginations to fill in all the blanks. come write with me!  250(ish) words or less - story, poem or non-fiction - click on comments below. 

We can never agree about anything, Reese thought. This is how it goes. Every single solitary time we try to choose something together we end up standing like this - at the paint store, the furniture store, the blasted grocery store for the love of Pete. Each of us too polite to get rude about it and insist on our own way, but much too stubborn to give in. At least at first. We'll go on like this for an hour sometimes until someone -- usually me -- decides it's not worth another minute staring at the thing we disagree about and finally gives in. Not gracefully or generously, but bitterly and with a punishing, "whatever" or "fine." In the end, no matter. Who cares about kitchen tile? And who knows how long it will last anyway.  

can't wait to read your work!
