Would You Rather

 WHOA!!  That's a whole lotta Slaughter faces UP CLOSE!  This post today was inspired by those three little faces. :)

I'm not sure about silly games your family plays but in our family we like to play, WOULD YOU RATHER?!

If you've never heard of it, you give players two scenarios and then they have to choose the one they'd rather have happen.  All for some fun!  

Let me tell you after deciding on this post idea, I realized there are a TON of websites out there with Would You Rather questions.  I have a Would You Rather app on my phone and when we're waiting for something while out running errands the kiddos and I often play.

Just yesterday, Ebby Lee asked me, "Mom, Would You Rather eat a live frog or have a frog eat you?".  No questions asked-I'd eat the frog.  :)

Again the game is all in good fun so of course-I'll never have to eat the frog and a frog won't be eating me, but sometimes I find myself afterwards still thinking about what I'd choose.

-When I was a teacher, we played ice breaker games at the start of almost every meeting.  These questions would be perfect.  
-In your classroom, give your kiddos a quick brain break and ask some questions.
-Give your students a Would You Rather question as a story starter.
-Or be silly and ask your kiddos a bunch of Would You Rather questions...I promise you'll have a good time.  :)


Would You Rather:

*Would You Rather be locked in a room that is constantly dark for a week or locked in a room that is constantly bright for a week?

*Would You Rather live without the internet or without AC/heating?

*Would You Rather have hiccups for the rest of your life or always feel like you're about to sneeze but not be able to?

*Would You Rather eat everything you see or lick everything you see?

*Would You Rather always have to skip everywhere or always have to run everywhere?


Hands-down I'd choose...*the bright room because I'd be scared of the dark after just a few minutes.
*Goodbye social media.
*I'd rather feel like I was about to sneeze.  Hiccups make me angry.
*I guess I'd rather lick everything-I hate that feeling of being too full and you'd always feel like that.
*Run-I'd probably look silly but not as silly if I was skipping everywhere.

What about YOU?  What Would You Rather?

Thanks for stopping by today!  See you tomorrow!  XO

One of my high school friends is known for her crazy "would you rathers." Even now as a 30-something lawyer and mom of 2 yesterday she asked "would you rather be named cheeseburger (and you had to go by that name- no nicknames or shortening of the name allowed) or have one ear be three inches lower than the other? Ha! (BTW I'd take the ear thing; I wear prescription sunglasses anyway so I'd have the dr fit them to my odd ears).

I've spent wayyyyyyyyyyyyyy too much time just now debating the hiccups or almost sneezing one. I HATE BOTH. I'm afraid I'm going to think about it all day.

Erika Slaughter said...

Like eat a live frog? Hahahaha!

Erika Slaughter said...

Too funny!!! I'd choose the ear thing too-by the way. :)

This would be the BEST road trip game. And a game for my son and his friends while in the car. They still like to crazy silly and loud instead of playing on devices. I will have to download this app!!

Hiccups make me angry too!! 😂

Amanda @ That Inspired Chick said...

So funny! I'm sure my two could come up with some crazy ones! Just thinking about whether or not I'd choose to eat a live frog or have one eat me is stressing me out though!!

I didn't know there was an app! My kids LOVE this game. They come up with the strangest stuff. Mom, would you rather be stuck in a tree with a light saber or be on the ground by yourself with a light saber and defeat the universe? WHAATTT?

Whitney Pegram said...

The running & skipping one 😂 ... could you imagine seeing someone skipping EVERYWHERE they went?!? Bahahah these really make you think!

Michelle said...

I would lick everything instead of eat. Maybe I should try that now then I'd be skinnier 😉

Give me all the sunshine!

See ya later, interwebs.

Sneeze? Both of these are TERRIBLE.



*Would You Rather eat everything you see or lick everything you see?
Lick, I guess..



*Would You Rather always have to skip everywhere or always have to run everywhere?
Skipping sounds like fun. :) .

Loved this post!
