Back in my early twenties, on a "break" with The Asshole, I briefly dated this guy named Jeff. Our relationship lasted six, maybe eight weeks, tops (and of course, I ended up leaving him to return to That Other Guy...duh!). All these years later, I'm rather ashamed to admit it, but there isn't a whole lot that stands out in my memory about the time that I had with him.
There is one exception, of course. One small thing that I always recall whenever Jeff happens to cross my mind. It has to do with this game we used to play...
I can't quite remember for certain (there may have been a fair bit of alcohol involved. ahem.), but I think we made it up. It was called This or That, and the rules were pretty simple: one person would provide a choice between two related or contrasting options, and the other would have to pick one and explain their choice.
So as I am lacking any sort of direction for a blog post this evening, let's play. I'll start off with a few examples, just to give you an idea of how this works...
Rich or Famous?
Ahhh...this is an easy one. Look around for a second. What do you see? Hello! An anonymous blogger. Yes, that would be your first clue, wouldn't it? But truly, I see absolutely no benefit to fame. Zip. Money, however...now that's something I could work with.
Sweet or Salty?
Chips, popcorn, peanuts...meh. I could take 'em or leave 'em, really. But. Cheesecake, Two-Bite Brownies, or a Boston Cream donut? Mmmmmm. Not only do I have a terrible sweet tooth, my sweet tooth even specializes - baked goods are pretty much like kryptonite for me. I'm completely helpless in the presence of a piece of pie...
Beatles or Stones?
Beatles, of course. Duh.
Okay, so now it's YOUR turn. Want to play? Leave me a comment with your own answers to these, or ask a This or That of your own...!
What the heck, let's be interactive today. :)
