Would You Rather….

in All Posts

Today is positively slipping away…. which is awesome.


Lunch was a repeat of a lunch I had earlier in the week.  It was so good, I wanted it again!


A hot dog roll with turkey, mustard, and cheese, all broiled together.


Plus, grapes and celery.


I can’t wait for the work day to be over…. I have so many fun things planned for this weekend, plus a lot of chores to do.  I want to get crackin’ on my weekend RIGHT NOW!


Would You Rather….


Let’s play my favorite game — "Would You Rather…?"!  So, would you rather….


  • Win a $1 million dream home in your dream location or win $250,000 cash?  Assume all the taxes, etc. are paid on the dream home.


I would rather win the cash.


  • Give $1,000 to a random stranger on the street who really needed the money or give $1,000 to your best friend who lives comfortably?


I would give the cash to the stranger.


  • Make out with your most hated ex or touch your own poop with your bare hands?


Poop, here I come!


  • Be a famous movie star or a famous pop singer?


I think I would rather be in movies… it would be so much fun to pretend to be someone else!


  • Drive an amazing car (think an Aston Martin Vanquish) or live in a really cool house?


I think I’d rather have a really hot car!


Now… it’s your turn! Answer the "Would You Rathers" in the comment section!  🙂

    Fun post! Let’s see…
    – I’d rather have $1mio home
    – give the money to a stranger
    – poop…eww, but I would not touch that ex with a 10foot pole…
    – movie star
    – really cool house 😀

  • Jen April 2, 2009, 9:56 am

    -Hmm, I think I’d rather have the million dollar house because having a paid of mortgage would save me lots of money.
    – I’d give the money to a stranger who needed it.
    -I’d rather touch the poop. Never thought I’d type that sentence!
    -I don’t think I’d want to be a pop singer or a movie star! I’d rather be a famous author and speaker.
    – Cool house.

    These are fun! I hope the rest of your day flies by!

  • Mrs. LC April 2, 2009, 9:57 am

    cash, stranger, poop, movie star, cool house 🙂

    What are your weekend plans? Let me know if anything fun is going on in Orlando. I’ll be in town tomorrow – Sunday for family-in-law fun, but may be able to get away some!

  • Dori April 2, 2009, 9:59 am

    So fun!

    – I’d choose the $1 million dream home.
    – Give cash to the stranger
    – Given my GI problems, touching poop doesn’t actually sound that gross to me.
    – Pop singer! I always wished I could sing.
    – Live in a cool house! I don’t care so much about what kind of car I have.

  • Sarah (lovINmytummy) April 2, 2009, 10:00 am

    I’m surprised with how cool everyone is with the poop touching.

    You all will make excellent mothers.

  • bb April 2, 2009, 10:01 am

    – House
    – Best friend…sorry strangers
    – Poop, fo’ sure
    – Cool house

  • Meghann April 2, 2009, 10:05 am

    – $ 1 mil home
    – Stranger… who am I kidding I would give it to you
    – Poop
    – Movie Star.. did I tell you I was a drama geek back in the day?
    – A really cool house, screw the car!

  • Carrie H April 2, 2009, 10:06 am

    He he … killin’ time till lunch, I’ll play!

    I’d rather:
    — have the house (in the mountains near a trout stream with plenty of outdoor hiking/exploring area … no neighbors!)
    — $1,000 to random stranger
    — Ugh, totally the poop. But that sounds pretty bad too.
    — Neither. I don’t want to be famous. Can I just have the $$ to buy the house above?
    — House again. The one above. 🙂

  • therunningaddict April 2, 2009, 10:11 am

    I LOVE these games! So let’s see:
    – $1 million home
    – Stranger. my best friend, they would expect me to do this, too!
    – Poop, certainly!
    – MOVIES!
    – The cool house!

  • Hi! I'm Erin April 2, 2009, 10:12 am

    Oh man, your sandwich looks so good! And I’ve been craving fruit something fierce. I have GOT to get to the grocery store.

    Okay, would I rathers:

    -Tough one. I guess I’ll go with the cash.
    -I’ll admit it, I’d give the money to my friend.
    -I don’t really have any “hated” exes. I guess I’d pick making out! Let’s assume it would not affect my marriage.
    -I’d rather be a singer…too bad I’m horrible at it!
    -I’d choose cool house all the way. Hubby would definitely choose amazing car. As he likes to say, “You can race your car, but you can’t race your house.”

  • Amelia (AC/DC: Highways to Health) April 2, 2009, 10:12 am

    I love playing Would You Rather!
    -get the cash
    -give to the stranger
    -haha um poop
    -movie star!
    -cool house

  • Adventures in Newlywed April 2, 2009, 10:13 am

    -I’d take the $1MIL home (on the beach in Tahiti, please:)

    -Give the $$$ to the stranger

    -Wow. I guess the poop? Ew.
    -Singer, for sure (if only I wasnt’ tone deaf…
    -The really cool house.

    LOVE your blog, by the way, I’m a daily reader 🙂

  • Leila April 2, 2009, 10:15 am

    I love ‘would you rather’! I would totally take the million dollar home, but then go around and sell it and come out with more than the $250,000.
    – totally the stranger, but someone who I truly believe will use the money to help themselves – I’m totally teach them to fish type person.
    – make out, I can’t do the poop thing (plus I don’t really have a most hated ex)
    – movie star, you get multiple takes
    -Really cool house, I’m a cancer and all about home.

    Love it!!

  • Sammie April 2, 2009, 10:21 am

    -I’ll take the cash
    -Give the stranger some dough as long as it wasn’t for boozing it up
    -I’m a mommy – I’ve touched plenty of poop and would much rather that than be anywhere near my ex’s mouth
    -I think being in the movies would be cool – I could use a different role every now and then
    -Definitely live in a really cool house – I’m not that into cars

  • audgepodge April 2, 2009, 10:24 am

    Aston Martin Vanquish… is this your Edward Cullen obsession taking over??? 🙂

    Just teasing… I’m the same way!

    I agree with your answers except for the last… I’d want a cool house. For me, a car is just a way to get from point A to point B. 😛

  • Trish April 2, 2009, 10:26 am

    I’ll take the house
    give the money to a stranger

    I would rather…

    – have the house (as long as I could get a job nearby)
    – give the money to the stranger
    – hmm, don’t have a hated ex… am I exempt from this one?
    – I’d much rather be a movie star!
    – I’d go for the house… unless I already have the $1m from the first “would your rather,” in which case I’d obvi. go for the sweet car! I’d love a really sexy hybrid. 🙂

  • Caitlin April 2, 2009, 12:08 pm

  • Runningwithin April 2, 2009, 1:57 pm

    1) The house for sure, a paid mortage, living with no rent, I’m there!
    2) Stranger
    3) I’d say Ex but don’t think I’d be able to finish the kiss because the urge to punch him would be too strong…
    4) Movie Star!! I love acting : )
    5) House most def.

    To a stranger!

    Make out with your most hated ex or touch your own poop with your bare hands?


    Be a famous movie star or a famous pop singer?

    Definitely movies!
