EM’s Sunday Ramble #11

This week’s topic is “Would You Rather?“.

Here are the questions:

Would you rather be the hero that saved the girl or the villain that took over the world?

I don’t particularly want to be a hero but I’d prefer that to being a villain.

Would you rather have a skin that changes color based on your emotions or tattoos that appear all over your body whenever you are dishonest?

Again, I really would not like either of these options. The first choice would make my emotions completely transparent to everyone, not that my face doesn’t do that already. As for the second, no way. I hate tattoos. I do try to be honest but what about those little white lies we tell to be kind to each other?

Would you rather have unlimited pizza   for life or unlimited tacos   for life?

I like both but definitely pizza.

Would you rather own a key that can open any door for you or be able to visit any place you want?

If I had a key like that, I’d put it down somewhere and forget what I’d done with it so I’d go with visiting any place I want. I’d also like that to include in any time period because many of the places I’d like to visit would have been nicer in the past.

Would you rather wake up in a dark forest or wake up on a deserted beach?

I’d rather wake up in my own bed thank you very much. I did sleep on a beach once and it was very uncomfortable. I had sand in places there was never meant to be sand. I’ll take the forest as long as I can have a tent or a cabin and a proper bed. I can’t get up off the ground so easily these days so sleeping bags are out.

I was born in England in 1957 and lived there until our family came to Australia in 1966. I grew up in Adelaide, South Australia, where I met and married my husband, David. We came together over a mutual love of trains. Both of us worked for the railways for many years, his job was with Australian National Railways, while I spent 12 years working for the STA, later TransAdelaide the Adelaide city transit system. After leaving that job I worked in hospitality until 2008. We moved to Tasmania in 2002 to live in the beautiful Huon Valley. In 2015 David became ill and passed away in October of that year. I currently co-write two blogs on WordPress.com with my sister Naomi. Our doll blog "Dolls, Dolls, Dolls", and "Our Other Blog" which is about everything else but with a focus on photographs and places in Tasmania. In November 2019 I began a new life in the house that Naomi and I intend to make our retirement home at Sisters Beach in Tasmania's northwest. Currently we have five pets between us. Naomi's two dogs Toby and Teddy and cats, Tigerwoods and Panther and my cat Polly. My dog Cindy passed away aged 16 in April 2022.
