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.

There are better things to think about
Like would you rather have the superpower of flight, or of invisibility? Frankly, I'd rather be invisible. Most people would rather fly.

Someone's been listening to This American Life.

A hard choice, but I think ultimately, I'd better go with flying. More fun, and less temptation.

Eew. But how about a third choice? Watching a porn movie with your parents that STARRED your parents.

You are EVIL
I think that I just had an aneurysm just reading that sentence. That is a level of skeeve from which I might never recover. My parents don't have sex. Don't ever try to make me think otherwise.
