Tonight on The Bachelorette, Andi Dorfman will make a decision on public television. She'll have to decide not only between wearing her hair up or down, but also between two men with whom she's sat in front of velvet-draped apple boxes and talked about the importance of family probably a total of four times. For the last time on her televised quest for love, she'll stand in front of those creepy, gilded picture frames that look like they belong in funeral homes and contemplate (or pretend to contemplate) a decision that…ultimately, does not mean sh*t.
In fact, the decisions that we make in our authentic, untelevised lives are far more significant than Andi's. After all, they're sure to have much longer lasting consequences than which soul mate has been determined by a casting director.
Here are some decisions you've most likely already made today that will far outweigh the one she makes tonight.
