Sometimes you just have to make a snap decision
Saturday afternoon, my phone rings. “Hello?” “Quick! We’re on our way to the nursery. Do you want to come?” I recognize the voice as one of my friends who recently bought a house and presumably is doing some spring landscaping. But I have to answer fast. Time for a snap decision. “No.” My friend seems surprised that I give my answer so quickly. “Oh! Well then! Bye.”
If you tell me I have to answer fast, you shouldn’t act all offended if I give a quick answer.
