Perhaps it’s because I’m basically an old-fashioned kind of girl that I tend to toss out old phrases like “don’t count your chickens,” “look before you leap,” along with one of my catch alls: “six of one, half dozen of another.” I tend to add that one in when there is a stalemate to a discussion. I can see there is more than one way to approach a matter so for argument’s sake I acknowledge we agree to disagree.
I then realized there truly is a different way to see and do a lot of things which can head up some fairly heated debates. For instance:
- Storing glasses: rim down or rim up in the cupboard?
- Shoes and socks: put socks on first and then shoes or one sock one shoe one at a time?
- Chilled water: store water in the fridge or water and cubes as needed?
- Bedsheets: pattern down or pattern up?
Swimming: dash in or bit by bit?
- And the age old toilet paper controversy

Can you add your own “see it two ways” to the list?
