Sunday Stealing

Would You Rather?

Would you rather go into the past and meet your ancestors or go into the future and meet your great-great grandchildren? Since there's no way I'll have great-great grandchildren, I'll have to go with meeting my ancestors. Though I've gotta tell you, I don't feel any great connection to my family's long-ago history, which took place in Europe. I'd rather know what it was like to live here in Illinois hundreds of years ago.

Would you rather have more time or more money? Money.

Would you rather have a rewind button or a pause button on your life? Rewind.

Would you rather be able to talk with the animals or speak all foreign languages? Oh, how I would love to be able to talk with the animals!

Would you rather win the lottery or live twice as long? Lottery. I imagine living twice as long and outliving everyone I care about would be heartbreaking.

Would you feel worse if no one showed up to your wedding or to your funeral? Funeral, but only because I won't be having a wedding for no one to show up to.

Would you rather be without internet for a week, or without your phone? Phone. I really don't use it that often. And I feel positively bereft without the internet!

Would you rather meet George Washington, or the current President? 
I'm proud of Chicago's very own
While I think meeting any President would be an honor, there are others I'd rather meet. If you read this blog regularly, you know I feel the greatest emotional connection to Abe and JFK. And wouldn't FDR, Jefferson, Truman and Nixon be fascinating, too? Washington and Obama would certainly come in before, say, Franklin Pierce, but neither is in my Top 10. But I'm going to run the Obamas photo here, just to piss off the haters.

Would you rather lose your vision or your hearing? My hearing. I can't imagine not being able to read or look at photos or see the sky. 

Would you rather work more hours per day, but fewer days or work fewer hours per day, but more days? Fewer days

Would you rather listen to music from the 70’s or music from today? I do listen to more music from the 70s than from today.

Would you rather become someone else or just stay you? Who would that someone else be?

Would you rather be Batman or Spiderman? Batman. Clearly.

Would you rather be stuck on a broken ski lift or in a broken elevator? Elevator.

For your birthday, would you rather receive cash or gifts? Cash.


  1. I like your Obama picture.

  2. Who'd rather not hit "rewind"? I mean whether they let you correct mistakes or just relive the best of times. I wrote future because of the kids and grandkids, but I lied...

  3. I had a tough time choosing the president to meet because I am fascinated with both options. Colonial history is my era, so I would love to learn more about it.

  4. I too love your photo. Big shock, eh?

    Also, good question about precisely WHICH someone else you'd be opting for. ;-)

  5. We use to have a classic rock station here that all of us boomers would listen to. One day without notice, it went Country. Like wth? People were really ticked off. I can't even listen to my radio any more.

  6. Anonymous12:16 AM

    I liked the Photo of the President and 1st Lady.

  7. It's Batman (Wings mostly) and the money for me, too. And the ancestors, most of mine I wouldn't want to meet in a dark alley, prolly, so I understand that. Say, there's a book series by Jane Smiley you might like to read. Love the picture of the Obamas.

    Country? How rude was that? It's the newest "Big Thing" apparently. Gimme Rock anytime!
