Would you rather an extra arm OR an extra leg…
This week’s post calls for some serious introspection and a pros/cons list.

I would definitely choose an extra arm. For a while there I was leaning towards an extra leg, but I’m pretty lazy, so getting things done is more important to me.
Also, hubs pointed out that having an extra limb could come in handy if you are ever trapped and need to eat one in an emergency. Yes, that was his take on this.
On the downside, having an extra limb would cost more in manicures and pedicures. Bummer.
I choose an extra arm.

Want to play along? Here’s the way it will work:
  • I pose a question: would you rather THIS or THAT? and why?
  • I will post up my answer
  • At the bottom I will give next week’s question.

I would love it if you joined in, you can leave your answer and why in the comments or link up a blog post. Got a Would You Rather you want to see featured. Drop me a line at momroad [at] gmail [dot] com or leave it in the comments.
Next week’s Would You Rather is: Would you rather be able to move at the speed of light OR stop time?
