Would You Rather - Wednesday



Last week's question still leaned heavily in favor of being smart.

During the last two weeks, you all have also shown me how incredibly shallow I am. I passed on being smart, not once but twice.  So I'd rather be popular & highly attractive, sue me! I've been smart my whole life, I want to see how the other half lives. ;o)

Now on to this week.


Would you rather . . . ?


A) Be able to overhear any conversation


or 


B) Have the ability to take back anything you say

Oh cheese and rice. I don't want to hear everything. Taking things back? YES.

salarsenッ said...

Ooh, B all the way!

Stina Lindenblatt said...

Definitely B. A would get me into trouble, and then I really would be wishing I could do B. ;)

Katie Mills said...

oooh, good question. I'd pick A. Watching what I say should be easy enough. But there are so many occasions where I wish I could be a fly on the wall, so A would be cool!

Matthew Rush said...

I don't want either of these. I always try to say what I mean and mean what I say ... except when I'm being a sarcastic dick ... so yeah, I guess taking back stuff would be cool.

Summer Frey said...

Hmmm. Probably A. Yeah, A. I'm too utterly curious/nosy for anything else. It would also really come in handy in certain jobs/situations.

Christopher S. Ledbetter said...

Definitely "A" I don't need to take back things I say. My filter works perfectly. I say only what I want (99% of the time) But, I'd love to overhear other convos. Priceless.

Chris Phillips said...

A. I'm self conscious and I have more control over b.

Melissa said...

Take back anything I say for sure. I have a tendency to speak without thinking and blurt things out. This has backfired on me more times then I can count....

lexcade said...

B. I have foot-in-mouth disease like a mofo.

Christopher said...

Definitely take back what I say. I too often speak before I think.

Meredith said...

Definitely A. I'm such an eavesdropper--hey, writers are allowed to be sketchy!

Elena Solodow said...

Okay, this is a tough one...I think I'm going with B, otherwise I'd probably hear a lot of stuff I didn't want to, for good or evil.

Kindros said...

Both would be amazing. A would be used more for profit. The things you could know and the tricks you could pull. B would make me feel a lot better. There are things I hold in just because it would cause some damage.

B is my ultimate choice. I hope it would bring us back to the point of it being said though, like rewinding time. Reliving some moments would be amazing!

Shelley Sly said...

B, definitely. You don't know how many times I sound like an idiot on a daily basis. *Sigh*

Katie said...

Definitely A. I don't usually say things without thinking and I'd love to hear some conversations!!!

I would rather be able to hear any conversation...hell, can I take it a bit further and hear thoughts? Sometimes I have to fuel my nosy side. :)

Caitlin said...

Hmm. I tend to say things not enough, so i'm gonna go with A! There are several conversations I'd love to listen in on..I can't be the only one who's wanted to be a fly on the wall...
