Last week, I went to my friend Lucy’s house for dinner, and her eight-year-old daughter sat down with us before heading to bed. Instead of asking about school (“What’s your favorite subject?” groan), we decided to play a rousing pre-bedtime game of Would You Rather. Here were some of the questions we came up with…
Would you rather:
be lost at sea or lost in the desert?
be an amazing singer or an amazing dancer?
always feel a little too hot or a little too cold?
have the power of flight versus invisibility?
travel back in time or into the future?
adopt a puppy or kitten?
eat only savory food or only sweet food?
speak any language or be a math genius?
Gemma, who was sitting next to me, said her boys like the dark ones, so she asked: would you rather do a small burp every five minutes or a small fart every five minutes? You guys, there IS a right answer!
Thoughts? What questions would you add?
