Would You Rather - Wednesday





Short and sweet today, Folks. And I'm gonna hold my answer for a bit. Want to see what everyone else has to say before I throw in my two cents.


Would you rather be . . . ?


A) smart 


OR 


B) popular

So in high school I had the whole "popular" experience. And honestly? It is SO not what it's cracked up to be. I've never been so stressed in my whole life. Way too much pressure. So yeah, I'm definitely going with Smart.

Jessica Bell said...

Smart. I've never ever been popular so I know that it's no big deal being an outsider. I'm used to it! ;o)

Matthew Rush said...

I happen to be both, so I don't have to choose!

Susanne Drazic said...

A - smart

Stina Lindenblatt said...

LOL at Matt's comment.

Smart. I was never popular, except for the brief moment when I moved from England to Houston. Then I was a novelty because of my accent. But I was painfully shy and it was too much attention for me.

Justine Dell said...

Oh, Matthew. ;-) Funny guy. If I had to pick on, I'd be SMART!!

Oh, and the lady who drew that pic on my blog said the exact same thing about Sarah Palin. Sigh.

Smart, no question.

Anne Gallagher said...

Smart, absolutely.

Janet Johnson said...

Smart, for sure. Popularity is too dependent on others. That would drive me crazy!

Shannon said...

Smart. Popularity is over-rated.

Kaylie said...

Smart because more smart people than popular people write novels. And we all know writers are the coolest people on the planet, so I'd rather hang with them.

Meredith said...

Smart. Definitely. It can take you so much farther.

Colene Murphy said...

HA! Matthew...uh. That made me laugh.

Being popular brings drama. Being smart is an easy choice!

Chris Phillips said...

Popular, because popular people don't always know they aren't smart, but smart people have figured out they aren't popular a long time ago.

Patti said...

Smart, although if you had asked me that question at fifteen, I might have answered differently, but now SMART all the way.

Elena Solodow said...

Smart. Perpetually. I don't think the pops even know what that means...

Pk Hrezo said...

Smart for sure!

Misty Waters said...

Since everyone else said SMART, I'm going to go with B. Popular. Not that I wouldn't rather be smart, but I like to throw chinks in the chain.

PS ~ GIRL HAIR. Seriously. No question.

Terry Towery said...

Smart, no question.

Dawn said...

Definitely smart! Especially after reading this great YA book called Populazzi. Made me laugh out loud, but realize to what end some people will go for popularity.

Carol Riggs said...

Aw, brains aren't everything. I like being smart, but it can be lonely. In high school, people detest you because you get all A's--it makes them feel bad. Maybe I'd like to try popular, but I DO have friends, so maybe I already know. I didn't have many in high school, though. Sorta depends on how you define "popular" too--just a lot of friends, or the shallow high school version of popularity.
