Ruth: Now that we’ve picked out a new couch, we need to pick out an upholstery fabric. What do you think of this checkered one?
Gerry: That’s an eyesore. I prefer something a little more subtle.
Ruth: Subtle? What’s fun about subtle? I want something bold and that’ll make a statement. How about this one with the polka dots?
Gerry: You’ve got to be kidding! That pattern is so busy, if I had to look at that every day, I’d go crazy.
Ruth: All right, what do you think of this one with the stripes?
Gerry: I’m not crazy about it, but it’s not as tacky as the others ones.
Ruth: Okay then, you pick one out.
Gerry: Fine. Let me see…Now this is a sight for sore eyes!
Ruth: But that has no pattern at all! It’s a solid blue color, and a boring shade of blue to boot.
Gerry: That’s right. That’s what I call a classic.
Ruth: And that’s what I call dull!
