I want to play a game with you guys. I'd love to get some of you to answer these questions... come on, it'll be fun and I have to go first!
#1: Would you rather only read all but the last chapter of every book you read or only watch the last ten minutes of every movie you watch?
#2: Would you rather eat something completely disgusting or do something incredibly embarrassing in public?
#3: Would you rather write an awful book that is loved by millions while you are alive or write an amazing classic that is cherished by millions after your death?
#4: Would you rather live life unable to communicate your true feelings or live life unable to filter your feelings (good and bad)?
#5: Would you rather be trapped in a box with a mime or have to ride in a clown car with six clowns?
#6: Would you rather go back in time and meet your ancestors or go into the future and meet your great grandchildren?
#7: Would you rather have the memories of somebody that you loved and lost or not remember them?
#8: Would you rather believe in Hakuna Matata or YOLO?
#9: Would you rather vacation on a tropical island or a cabin in the mountains?
#10: Would you rather eat monkey brains or live crickets?
#1: Either of these would really irritate me so I guess I choose the last ten minutes of a movie. Books are so much more important to me than movies and I know that I would try to find a way to cheat and read the entire book!
#2: This is easy! I can't do disgusting foods... yuck! However, I pretty much have no shame. I would do something embarrassing in public any day over eating something gross.
#3: This one is easy as well. I'd much rather write a beloved classic than a terrible bestseller that is forgotten after it is read. I am probably going to upset a few of you right now but can we say, "Fifty Shades of Grey"? YUCK!
#4: Hmmm... I guess I'd rather live unable to have a filter. I would obviously suffer immediate consequences such as: black eyes, loss of friends, and coming across as promiscuous once in a while but I'd also be able to express love, loss, happiness, and pain honestly. Honest feelings would be worth the drawbacks of having a big mouth.
#5. Anybody who knows me knows that I am TERRIFIED of clowns and although I am not really that fond of mimes, I'd rather spend a Saturday evening in a box with one of them than get anywhere near a clown car!
#6: This is an interesting question, I guess I'd rather meet my great grandchildren. You can always study genealogy and find out who your ancestors were but you will never get the opportunity to meet your great grandchildren. It'd be very fulfilling to see who they resemble, their career choices, and their families.
#7: I would never give up my memories- even the painful ones. I didn't handle the loss of my grandmother very well and the memory of that point in my life haunts me to this day but the memories that I have of her are precious. I would not give them up for anything.
#8: Hakuna Matata! YOLO is lame.
#9: I think that I would rather go to a tropical island. I'd want to scuba dive, lay on the beach, and swim with dolphins.
#10. This is gross just to think about. I am definitely not good with gross. I guess if I have to choose, I'd eat the crickets. It's a texture thing; I think the monkey brains would be squishy and jello like.
