I tried to sell Syd on the benefits of B&W (as they are known) -Kevlar cone! -Same speakers that they use in Abbey Road....and you know what album was recorded there!? It was Abbey flippin Road! By the BEATLES, greatest rockband on earth, ever heard of em? - Rosewood finish (I would probably buy the shiny black that needs to be dusted all the time, or the douchey white pair)
I couldn't decide if it really MATTERED to have great speakers, what about...just like, pretty nice "affordable" Klipsch towers? It's like the BEST of the worst tier of speakers. Like, they are REALLY good, considering how crappy they are. It's 7th grade logic. Obviously.
Now, Syd doesn't like to SHOP just to SHOP.
Shes a "I've got a list and when it gets long enough I'll go get these things and nothing else" she gets new pants when the old pants just won't do anymore. SENSIBLE WOMAN. Forever West.
So to her, this wasn't a hard decision, simply pick one and live with the consequences. Stop asking questions and execute, soldier.
But after having 3 or more grown, bearded-assed men yell aggressively at you from the stage, it has a certain way of making me less obnoxious tonight.
I laid out my case again, and she realized all of the unspoken words that I was trying to use. I was being vulnerable after she sacrificed a night at a place with angry white dudes taking turns screaming, I wanted to let my guard down and didn't know how.
Syd helped me figure out what I was really looking for. I wanted validation and reasoning through the pros, the cons, trying to flush out the missing exponent, consider every permutation. I wanted to show I was being responsible and deferential and considering our future. None of this was said, Mind you. I was hoping she would read my mind.
And it's not fair because I tell Syd that I won't even pretend to read her mind. I have a rule that unless the problem is SPOKEN or written, the problem doesn't exist. USE YOUR WORDS, no miscommunication.
I just didn't know what words I was trying to ask, and Syd knows me so well-she was able to shine the light down on me. And we came to a conclusion together because we agreed to. Well, Not really
