Would You Rather?

When I was a kid, we would play "would you rather," a game which has now been immortalized by Justin Heimberg and David Gomberg in a book of the same name.

Now it's a little different. Things are more serious. When I lost my grandfather to a car crash ten years ago, and then my grandmother to Alzheimers four years later, I wondered, "Would I rather have a loved one die a slow, tortuous death by degrees, or be taken from me suddenly and without warning?" Often during my romantic life I have asked myself whether I would rather have a life that seems to be rife with drama or have one where nothing much happens. I get tired of coming in to work looking like I've been beaten (don't worry - my life isn't that dramatic) because I've spent the night dealing with some bit of drama. On the other hand, my life as I live it today wouldn't be possible if I were on my own. I have too much going on.

But seriously - would you rather watch a porn movie with your parents, or starring your parents. These are the real dilemmas in life.

Is it just me?

Did you ever really really have to pee, and the urge came on you so suddenly that it made your arms and hands hurt?

No?

Hmmm...could just be me.
