would you rather – huitième partie

always be 10 minutes late or always be 20 minutes early
Twenty minutes early all day every day.

lose the ability to read or lose the ability to speak
Gah! Why did I do this to myself!?!
I think lose my ability to speak. I could write stuff down. I could sign and that would be OK once everyone around me learned to sign. I’m a visual learner, I need to be able to read all the things!

be able to command water or the wind
Water.
If Avatar: The Last Airbender taught me anything it’s that even though I’m a fixed earth sign I’d be a water bender. And I’d use my bending to be a healer.

know the history of every object you touched or be able to talk to animals
Know the history of every object I touch.
The idea of unlimited anthropological and sociological learning makes me absolutely giddy! What a powerfully important and helpful skill.

control space or time
Thing 1 and I had a conversation about this.
I was quick to choose time. Think of all we could do if we could control time.
One of my first examples was: Thing 2 could come visit and it would feel so long and we’d feel like we had enough quality time, but no time would have passed while she was here, so she wouldn’t have to take time off from work, etc.
She said, “Haven’t we learned that there’s always a catch? Don’t mess with time, Momma. Leave time alone.”
Um…

What would y’all rather?

  1. Ten minutes early. Always. I couldn’t live without reading. No way. No how. Command the wind…but I don’t know why.talk to animals. Clearly want to know what they’re thinking! Control time…can’t let it get away

  2. Thing1

    Don’t. Mess. With. Time. Just don’t do it. A whole history of movies, television and books have shown us that is a REALLY bad idea! Just don’t mess with time. Plus if you control space you could teleport Thing 2 and she could come visit and go to work and come right back so yeah. Dont mess with time.

  3. Losing the ability to read would be an absolute nightmare 💖
