You're freaking me out. Do you have any suggestions for grays?

Or you do what I do, which is to choose only three samples, paint them on the wall, force yourself to ignore the fact that there ARE any other colors available now that you've chosen these three, and pick the one you hate the least. Paint it on the wall as quickly as possible, decide there's no going back, and find a way to embrace it for the next ten years until you do it over again.
