Would You Rather

I love playing that game. You know the one. You come up with two horrific scenarios and ask a friend - or stranger for that matter - which one they would rather have happen to them.

It's a perfect ice breaker. A great way to get to know someone.

"Would You Rather" could be successfully used as a quick way to weed through the dating pool.

"Would you rather sleep with George Bush or John Kerry?"

"Janet Reno or Margaret Thatcher?"

"Fall 10 stories and half way down catch your eyelid on a nail or have three toenails pulled out by a large man with needle nose pliers?"

"Never be able to speak again or only be able to speak an completely unknown language that no one else understands."

You can see how you could gleen all important things about a person this way. Right?

Well, Sophie and I were playing the other day. With children it is sort of important to not have sexual references or gory scenarios. "Would you rather live in a tent or a cave?" is a good one for children. (Just so you know....)

She came up with one that stunned me. I still haven't decided on my answer.

"Would you rather be a worm on a sidewalk while girls are playing jump rope or lick peanut butter of of a hobo's foot?"

No hobos were harmed in the writing of this post.

i've thought about it for a while. i have a hard enough time being a human, i don't think i could adjust to being a worm; especially not one in distress. that being said, could the peanut butter be skippy? :S

Licking peanut butter off a hobo's shoe is so underrated.

Well TTLB says I'm a wiggly worm these days so I guess that'd be my call...

The worm doesn't necessarily get harmed does it? Whereas there's some guarantees of a bad experience with the hobo thing...

You'd need to apply the peanut butter first presumably?

Hmm, tough one...

How about being a worm eating the Peanut Butter, jumping rope while scaring a Hobo?


Nahh, i can't think of an answer either.

Crazy Kids.
