Blog every day in July, #20: Would you rather…



If you’ve never played this game, jump in–I think it’s fun (and revealing). We have fifteen “Would you rather?” questions today:

1. Be blind or be deaf. Blind. I could get books on tape but I couldn’t live without music.

2. Be taller than you are or shorter than you are. Taller. Hello supermodel!

3. Be a teenager or a senior citizen for the rest of your life. Teenager.

4. Have no hands or no legs. Yikes…I guess no legs? People in wheelchairs do some pretty amazing things, like sports and adventuring. I would get impatient with no hands to do things for myself, like turn book pages.

5. Lose your front teeth or both eyebrows. Eyebrows–I would just pencil ’em back in!

6. Eat a worm or a cockroach. Pass (vegan).

7. Spend a day in the Sahara or North Pole. The Sahara. I get so cold so easily, I don’t think I would survive the North Pole!

8. Have a personal chef or a personal driver. Chef (yum). I get nervous when other people are driving.

9. Always have to whisper or always have to shout. Whisper. My voice sounds weird when I talk too loud.

10. Can’t taste or can’t smell. Smell. My sense of smell is hyperactive as is, and it can be a pain.

11. Wipe with sandpaper or saran wrap. Saran wrap? I guess? This list is mean.

12. Have Twitter shut down for a day or your blog disappear for a day. I hardly use Twitter, so yeah.

13. Text of your blog is screwed up or all the pictures you post on your blog are blurry. Hmm…I guess I’ll take blurry photos, since I write more than I add photos. Also, I hate reading blogs with lovely crisp photos and super-tiny cursive colored fonts–I click out fast. The photos can’t keep me if I can’t read the type.

14. Never be able to post another GIF or never be able to receive comments on your posts. GIFs, I guess. Don’t bloggers kind of live for comments?

15. Have a permanent wedgie or have the tag on your shirt constantly scratch your neck. I feel like other people can somehow sense the wedgie and laugh at it, so I’ll go with the scratchy tag.

    I wouldn’t be able to live without music either. I’m listening to it right now. I don’t really use GIF’s either, I do love my comments, interacting is so fun! I hope your having a great Saturday.

      I don’t think blogging would be worth much to me without the interaction! Hope you’re having a good one as well!

  • Erin

    I would be deaf, I like to see people, nature, art etc..

    Also I would totally give up my sense of taste, sense of smell is a survival trait. Imagine if you couldn’t smell smoke or gas in your home?

    The worm and cockroach question actually grosses me out. Every blog I’ve read that on it just makes me want to vomit lol

    “Would you rathers?” frustrate me so much because I just want to say “NEITHER!!!” to both of them. Although, I would rather be shorter than I am. I’m not very tall but I think I’m a little tall for my width so finding shirts and jeans long enough is sometimes an issue…

    • writergirlm

      Oh, I know! Clothes are so weird that way. I have trouble with sleeves–I have skinny arms, so anything long enough tends to be too baggy, and if it’s cut slim it’s too short. Frustrating.

  • Frannie Pantz

    I think I agree with almost all of these with you except I would rather be a senior citizen than a teenager. That was rough! And I would kill to be retired and just do seniory things like knit or garden all day. LOL

  • Pang

    I don’t like any of these, hehe. I guess I’d rather be deaf than blind. I rely a lot more on my sight and would feel more handicapped if I were blind. I need to be able to see where I’m going, what I’m wearing and what I’m cooking or eating. I don’t mind doing all those necessities without sound.

  • Amanda P

    Back when I wrote a post on music, I thought the same thing about being blind over being deaf, but now I don’t know…I have seen so many awesome things since I’ve been overseas that literally depend on being able to *see* them and I would have missed out on it all if I was blind. I would hate to be without music, but these days I think I’m gonna have to go with deaf. Hopefully I never have to deal with either.

      Fingers crossed, right? I know what you mean. There’s a lot you would miss if you couldn’t see it. It’s such a toss up.
