Would you rather have to wear scuba flippers during all waking hours for a month -OR- have to wear a huge, festive sombrero and carry a large trumpet with you everywhere for a month?
I love the word "festive" in there. "But WAIT--is it festive?" That changes everything. Well, i do like me a nice sombrero. And crazy hats aren't all that crazy. But wearing flippers is, and it would drive me crazy. Plus, with my sombrero and trumpet I could join in the fiesta music trios that often play on the trains and pretend I am part of it. Because they are rather good.
Would you rather jump from a 100-foot high ledge onto a pile of sofa cushions -OR- from a 100-foot high ledge into a 95-foot high pile of thick, whipped cream?
Good heavens, jumping into whipped cream sounds like a dream. But will I be safe? I am not sure. Exactly how thick is it? And did they use heavy whipping cream? And how long did they whip? Is it on the borderline of buttery? What is the consistency like? Was there sugar added?
In 8th grade we had a project where we had to design a receiving device that would catch an egg from the roof and keep it from breaking. My friend and I chose popcorn. It would allow some give but also resistance. And you can eat it. (Anything that serves a purpose that you can also eat = bonus.) It worked very well but somehow i don't think it will help me with this dilemma. I say 95-foot high pile of whipped cream because that is what dreams are made of. If I die, at least i spent the last seconds of my life extremely happy.
Would you rather have your ears where your eyebrows are -OR- have your nose where your belly button is?
Wait, if my ears are where my eyebrows are, are my eyebrows where my ears are? I'm just asking. I think I will say, have my nose where my belly button is. My belly button doesn't serve much of a purpose and aesthetically, all my nose does is make my face look normal. I am not sure noses are particularly great-looking. They greatly affect the way your face looks but I am convinced that even a "really pretty nose" (as one might say) is just a nose that doesn't make your face ugly, but the thing itself isn't all that spectacular. Maybe this is true of all facial features. SO, i'll have my nose on my belly and then get a fake nose to put on my face so I don't scare people. I need my ears where they are so they hold up my glasses and I think having them together, side-by-side on the front, would mess up my hearing somehow. I think there's a reason why they are where they are. Too bad i don't know what it is. Too bad I took a class called Sensation & Perception that was totally interesting and probably learned this, and too bad I have the memory of a walnut for things I learned in school.
Would you rather find your way through an intricate maze with only a pencil and paper to help you -OR- with only a compass?
Pencil and paper to help me? What, is this a magical pencil and paper that can talk to me and give me advice? Otherwise it sounds like I just have my brain to help me. Let me think now to a classic "maze" movie: Labyrinth. On second thought, no. I think that creepy film is one best left in my childhood. Well, i guess i'd choose the paper and pencil but not because I think they'd be a better help to me than a compass in getting out, but because I am sure i could not find my way out and would give up pretty quickly. But I could sit down and write out the rest of my memoirs before I die in the maze.
