WWTKW: Another shot of “Would you rather…”

I’ve had a Single Girl Files post brewing in my mind for a while…I contemplated airing it out today, but I’ve decided to let it stew for another little while.  I’ll play along with WWTKW instead.

“Would You Rather” was so much fun last time that Mamarazzi thought we would play again for this week's We Want To Know questions...  Linking up with her & Crazymama!

This week’s questions:

{one} WYR...Never be able to look in the mirror again or always get dressed in total darkness?
{two} WYR...Receive $50 a day for the rest of your life or $50,000 right here and now?
{three} WYR...Have extreme narcolepsy or have a bad case of tourette's?
{four} WYR...Be able to rewind 24 hrs 3 times a year or consciously control your dreams?
{five} WYR...Be fluent in every language around the world or be the best in the world in a category of your choosing?

My answers:

{one} WYR...Never be able to look in the mirror again or always get dressed in total darkness?

I’m already a pro at getting dressed in total darkness. 

Well, not really… but my closet is big and terribly messy, and it’s pretty dark.  Half the time I’m in there, rooting around, pulling out items of clothing, having no idea what I’ve actually got.  Sometimes I take my phone in with me and turn the flashlight app on, but usually, I just reach in blindly, and hope and pray I pull out something I can work with.

Never being able to look in the mirror again?  That’s not even an option.  I need to be able to see my fatness and horrible hair.  Plus, I’m kind of vain, you know.  (I realize these are contradictory statements.)

{two} WYR...Receive $50 a day for the rest of your life or $50,000 right here and now?

Oooooh.  That’s kind of tough.  At $50 a day, you could save up pretty quickly for whatever you want.  But $50,000 right now could get me a new set of wheels, some new clothes, and secure those hopes of going South for a week this winter, plus a few other things…  Yeah. I’ll take the $50,000 please.

{three} WYR...Have extreme narcolepsy or have a bad case of tourette's?

Well, who knew WWTKW could be so educational.  I kind of didn’t really even know what narcolepsy was, other than a Third Eye Blind song that I used to like, so I pumped it into the ol’ google machine, and this is what Wikipedia told me:

Narcolepsy is a chronic sleep disorder, or dyssomnia, characterized by excessive sleepiness and sleep attacks at inappropriate times, such as while at work.

Whaddya know.  I think I already have narcolepsy. I guess I’ll stick with it.  I love sleeping.

{four} WYR...Be able to rewind 24 hrs 3 times a year or consciously control your dreams?

Part of me would really like to rewind 24 hours, 3 times a year, but that could get risky.  Messing with the past is a kind of scary prospect to me. 

On the other hand, being able to consciously control my dreams sounds like a fantastic idea.  My friend Lindsay told me about a Channing Tatum dream she had recently, and I was like, “Dude, I never have good dreams like that.”  I can think about Channing Tatum all I want before falling asleep, and instead dream about my brother being chased by a gingerbread man.  Or about my entire high school graduating class hanging out in my friend Sara’s playhouse and getting into a big fight, with one guy eventually whacking the other over the head with an axe.  (not even joking.)

When a good dream happens, it’s wonderful.  If I could make that happen at will, that would be awesome.

Why yes, I will take this opportunity to post a dreamy picture of Channing, thankyouverymuch.

{five} WYR...Be fluent in every language around the world or be the best in the world in a category of your choosing?

I want to be the best at something.  That would be SO cool.  I would hope it would be something I could do at the Olympics, and get like a million gold medals for it.  Like the Michael Phelps of Skeleton racing or jumping on a trampoline. 

Definitely.  That’s what I want, for sure.

Imagine that’s me.  Except I’ll probably keep my shirt on.

Haha you are silly. Did you do the math on that $50 a day or $50,000? If you got $50 a day for say 50 years, that would be over $900,000. But if you are all for the instant gratification, eh who am I to judge. hehehe
