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.
