Would you rather. . .?

Two weeks ago, we were visiting the Borns and they pulled out a game I had never heard of. It's called Would you Rather, and it is tons of fun. I think there is a board of some kind, and certainly rules, but we ignored those and just went to the questions. Questions like: Would you rather have a hairline that began at your eyebrows and went up, or armpit hair that you couldn't trim or shave and grew down to your toes? Crazy questions.
My favorite, and the one that I've thought of ever day since was this one:

Would you rather have the theme music of your choice play whenever you were walking, or perfect mood lighting on you all the time?

I'd definitely go for the theme music. Of course the image that came to mind was me, strutting my way down the street with Stayin' Alive blasting. (The lyrics, "You can tell by the way I use my walk I'm a woman's man, no time to talk" are inappropriate on several levels, but the beat and the melody are absolutely the perfect walking music.) Or think about running after your children in a store with "Bumble Boogie" buzzing. Or stalking angrily down the hall to yell at someone and Darth Vader's theme drumming. Dum-dum-dum-dumpty-dum-dumpty-dum. Wouldn't it be awesome? But, I can also see the advantages of mood lighting. So, what would YOU rather have? And if it's the theme music, share which music you envision.

how ironic! I just got done watching Pride and Prejudice, and thought how wonderful it would be if that gorgeous piano music would play every time Mike came home for lunch. You know that part when mister darcy is walking towards her forever? I think that Darth Vader music already plays in my boys heads when they hear me pounding up the stairs to find out who did the punching and whose doing the crying! Great ? em. you are a terrific writer by the way.

Kent and I LOVE the game. We have it if you'd ever like to borrow it! or I should just bring the cards to our next rs function!
on your question, I may have to go with the mood lighting. I would go INSANE with the music.
One of my favorite questions is...
would you rather feed your children by regurgitation -OR- have to lick them to bathe them?

I think I would have to choose the mood lighting. Maybe I would become more photogenic and I could finally heal about an incident that happened in my youth. I was riding in a car at sundown with two boys. The more obnoxious of the two pointed out that the setting sun was illuminating my mustache. If I had the mood lighting, I would never have been exposed in such a way.

I agree with Leisy on this one. I would choose the mood lighting, because the mucis would drive me crazy. It might be fun for a little while, but in the end I would go crazy! Have you seen "Stranger Than Fiction"? For some reason I thought of that movie as I contemplated this question.
