The minimalist discernment process
Least-favorite purple coffee cup, I’ve been thinking.
Perhaps I’ve been rash. Maybe I would miss you, should I summarily smash you into smithereens to prevent you from taking up too much real estate in my kitchen cupboard.
So I want you to listen up. I am a reasonable woman, but I am also a woman of PRINCIPLE. No object may live in my house unchallenged. I am a true minimalist.
Therefore, in order to earn your right to survive, you must prove your worth.
There are two other objects in my house that are on the chopping block. Two tea pots. One red. One gray. And now you, purple coffee cup. And you, proliferate objects, have forced me into an unhappy decision.
Three of you exist. Only one will remain in the end. To determine which of you will be the glorious victor, I will build for you an arena…
…and there, there you will do BATTLE. Gladiator style.
