    Smile no-brainers

    Please check out the following sentences.

    (1) Every day we have decisions to make--what to eat, what to wear, how to spend our time, what to order off the menu, what movie to see at the theater.
    (2) Decisions like these are a matter of personal preference and no-brainers.

    (1) OK

    (2) Decisions like these are matters of personal preference and no-brainers.

    I disagree that they are always 'no-brainers' (easy choices).

    Re: no-brainers

    (I suppose for some people such decisions are easier than for others, but anyway I wouldn't call them no-brainers.)

    Re: no-brainers

    What to wear is definitely not a no-brainer.

    I refrain from making a sexist, non-PC comment. But I'll think it.

    Re: no-brainers

    What to eat is definitely not a no-brainer, specially when you haven't got much money. "no-brainer" is a really interesting word!

    That's why I said 'for some people'. I imagine the decision of what to wear is a lot easier for me than it is for you!

    PS Just seen 5jj's comment; he was more diplomatic than me.
