TMI Tuesday: Choices

1. You encounter a good looking lost and frantic tourist looking for the airport. You:
A) Shrug your shoulders, feigning ignorance.
B) Find the shortest route on your smartphone and get him/her a cab.
C) Direct him/her to the nearest bus stop.
D) Get your car, pick up his/her luggage and speed to the airport.

Depends on how pressed I am for time. B) if I have some place I need to be, D) if I have the time. And the fact that they're good-looking doesn't affect my answer.

2. You’re taking a vacation alone. Your destination:
A) Beach resort — I just want to relax and de-stress.
B) A group tour — I don’t want to worry about the details.
C) Wherever the dart lands on the map.
D) Every country with a hostel — my backpack is my home.

Of these choices, D) and A) both sound good. But if choice E) was a remote wilderness trailhead with a fully-equipped backpack, I might choose differently.

3. Blackout! You can’t watch TV, so you light some candles and:
A) Dig up some batteries and listen to the radio.
B) Invite the neighbors, light a fire and sing camping songs all night.
C) Find a friend and play games that don’t require electricity. . . Like chess.
D) Drive to the next town — oh sweet Wi-Fi, I’ve found you!

B) and C) both sound good. But again, I'm feeling limited by the choices here. How about E) light a candle and read a book or play the acoustic gutar?

4. The man/woman of your dreams has finally proposed. The relationship is perfect, they are everything you’ve ever dreamed of and ever wanted. They are also a multi-millionaire and want you to sign a prenuptial agreement. Which would you do?
A) Sign it
B) Just not get married

A) I'll sign it. If the relationship is perfect, then I'm going with it. If we break up, I don't want her money anyway. But this question assumes I want to get married, and I've blogged a number of times about my issues with the whole concept of marriage as it's set up today.

5. If you were going to marry an inanimate object, what would you marry?
Note: A woman has married the Eiffel Tower and another has married the golden gate bridge. Read about it HERE

Well, when a friend asked me about my guitar (shortly after I bought it used), I told him I've never had such strong feelings about an inanimate object. He's reminded me of the line many times since.

Bonus: You’ve just inherited a manufacturing plant that specializes in plastics. What are you going to make?
A lot of money?  And then I can seriously think about Question #2. :-)

Go to TMI Tuesday to see who else is playing.


  1. 3. I'd love to listen to you play your guitar by candlelight. ;-)

    Bonus: That would be great when you make a lotta money so that you could seriously consider #2. ;-)

  2. 1: Aren't you sweet! :)
    3: Can I join? I'll bring smores!
    Bonus: I think our banks are giving serious thought to plastified money! (

  3. Your answer to #1 makes mine sound doubly selfish. Your answer to #2 makes mine sound doubly lazy. Your answer to #3 makes mine sound doubly dependent. Your answer to #4 makes mine sound doubly cynical. Your answer to #5 makes me wish I'd taken the question seriously and named an actual object I'd marry if I had to.

    Happy TMI Tuesday!


  4. 3:Totally agree with Sweets there!
    And I liked your answer to #4.

  5. Way to make up your own choices!
    And that is a very sexy guitar. :)

    @Jack - Hilarious!
