small devil on left shoulder: Ooooh. Look at that one. It's only $5.99/yard. You'll regret it if you don't get some. You love IKEA fabric.
small angel on right shoulder: For shame. Just walk away. You don't NEED anymore fabric. Why did you even come to the textile section? You should leave now.
small devil: But you've never seen this one here before. Feel it. It's mid-weight! Not decor. What a cute skirt it would make.
small angel: This is obscene. Do you remember what your fabric shelves look like? Is this really a smart use of your money? Do you seriously think you will make a skirt for yourself any time soon? And summer is almost over, what do you want with a white fabric? It's totally out of season.
small devil: But you have that dove grey pin dot fabric already. It goes perfectly with it. And you love birds. Wear it next year.
small angel: Look around. There is not one Blueshirt in sight. No one to cut it for you. Ah Ha! See? You have no time to wait around for one to show up either. Look how busy this place is. It's an omen. It clearly means you do not need this fabric. Let's go. Quit dithering. Show some self-control for once.
small devil: Wait! There's someone. They've already seen you hanging around the cutting table. You have to get it now. See, here they come. Don't be rude. Buy something. You need two yards. (triumphant laugh)
