Alright people, we need to have a little talk here.
I know some of these questions can be tough to choose, because - depending on your circumstances - there may be no clear cut winner. I get that. Truly, I do.
But it's called Would You Rather for a reason. Otherwise it would be called In An Ideal World, or If I Could Have Exactly What I Wanted . . . and quite frankly, both of those games sound a little boring to me.
So stop asking me if you can have both or refuse to accept either, 'cause that's cheating!!
Although, it's perfectly okay with me if you admit that you can't bring yourself to choose for the blog. That I respect. It's those of you who try weaseling escape clauses into your answers that I have my eye on.
(Obviously, this is all meant in jest . . . unless I happen to be totally serious)
My research from last week's question : Whether you would rather spend 10 years with your soulmate or 60 years with a runner-up proved that we writers tend to be more like our characters than we admit. (Or maybe it's the other way around). 66% of you decided you would rather deal with the loneliness later than miss out on the time with your soulmate.
Or to quote Shelby from Steele Magnolias: "I would rather have thirty minutes of wonderful than a lifetime of nothing special" (Sadly, we all know how that turned out)
As sadistic as it sounds (and I'm still not sure I won't change my mind at some point) I think I'd put myself through the torture too.
Now on to this week's social networking focus:
Would you rather have. . . ?
A) One-thousand blog followers
B) Ten-thousand Twitter followers
We're talking genuine followers (no spambots) in both scenarios.
