These ponderables are really fun to write.  I always enjoy reading people’s answers to these tough questions.  Many of you feel the way I do about these things that make you go hmmm.  I decided to come up with more things that make you go hmmm just to see what you all would do in these tough situations.  Some of these may be hard and you might not be able to answer them.  Remember that they are all in fun.  Here are the eight things that make you go hmmm.

Would you rather have hair so greasy it constantly drips no matter how much you wash it or would you rather drool constantly?  I would rather have greasy hair.  When I had curls, my hair used to drip so I know what that feels like.  Drooling is disgusting.

Would you rather as a man undressing in front of your partner for the first time have to reveal that you stuff your pants or that you shave your private parts?  Since I am not a man, I don’t know how to answer this question.  I would love to know what my male readers would do.

Would you rather eat your dinner every night for five years in a smelly outhouse or in a clean prison?  I think I would rather eat dinner in a clean prison.  I wouldn’t want to eat anywhere that smells.

Would you rather have a one-night stand with a stranger or with a close and previously platonic friend?  I would rather be with a friend.  At least you are familiar with the person.  The stranger could be a stalker or a criminal.

Would you rather show up for a blind date with a small booger on your nose or a huge glob of sleep in your eye?  I would rather have the sleep in my eye.  I wouldn’t want anybody constantly looking at my nose for boogers. 

Would you rather have jock itch or athlete’s foot for the rest of your life?  I would rather have athlete’s foot because I wouldn’t want to keep itching for the rest of my life.

Would you rather be caught by your spouse in bed with your adulterous lover or get caught by the press embezzling money for the charity over which you preside?  I would rather get caught with the lover since an affair is not a crime.  You could end up in prison for embezzling money.

Would you rather spend a milestone birthday having such a horrible time that it’s memorable or be so bored you can’t remember it in later years?  I would rather be bored.  I wouldn’t want to have a horrible time at my birthday party.

These are all the eight things that make you go hmmm.  I would love to know how you all would handle these sticky situations.  Please remember that these are all done in fun and not meant to be taken seriously.

    These questions are fun.

    1) None of the above. I hate oily hair and drooling is worse. If I was stuck in a desert and had no way of showering, then oily hair I guess.

    2) Shaving private parts. I think some men do.

    3) In a clean prison. I agree with your answer. I am very particular with smells.

    4) None of the above. I am not sure which one is worse

    5).caught in bed with an adulterous lover.

    6) Definitely no boogers especially those nasty green ones that are dry when you have a cold. lol. a huge glob of sleep in my eye I guess.

    7) As far as a one-night stand with a close friend. Imagine having one with a total stranger online. NOT.

    8) I would rather be bored.

    I am glad this is not serious because I wouldn’t be caught dead in bed with someone other than my significant other.

    A nice share

    That’s Interesting. The longest Hmmm goes to the Ethics one. Thanks for the brain exercise. :D

    some thoughts to ponder

  5. Posted February 18, 2011 at 12:32 am

    I did go hmm.
    1. Greasy hair
    2. Just glad I’m not a man
    3. First, am I in prison for five years or only eating dinner there. If I am only eating dinner, then the clean prison for me.
    5.Sleep in my eye.
    6.Athlete’s foot
    7.Affair. But I would never do that to my husband.

    All question made me say Hmmmmm, and I still have no answer for any of them.

  7. Posted February 18, 2011 at 12:40 am

    Some of these made me laugh. Sex with a stranger is easier than a platonic friend who will hang over your head like the sword of Damocles. I am not sure I understood the one about a man undressing.

    CA, these truly tickle the imagination. I am having trouble thinking of answers…

  9. Posted February 18, 2011 at 1:50 am

    Nice and interesting share. Thanks

  10. Posted February 18, 2011 at 2:02 am

    I sometimes do that Hmmm. Interesting article to read about.

  11. Posted February 18, 2011 at 4:49 am

    For me, the smelly outhouse would have to be it. I would just pinch my nose to close my nostrils.

  12. Posted February 18, 2011 at 5:34 am

    great work interesting one

  13. Posted February 18, 2011 at 6:53 am

    Interesting …. and I liked the ethics — I would rather be with a friend.

  14. Posted February 18, 2011 at 9:38 am

    good share

  15. Posted February 18, 2011 at 11:07 am

    wow, if I have to choose with gun pointing only, I will
    (1) greasy hair
    (2) ?
    (3) same as PR Mace
    (4) friend
    (5) sleep, as the person knowing I’m sleepy and can release me earlier and I go back and sleep, but sleeping with this person, lol.
    (6) Athlete’s foot, at least the “Athlete” is there, sounds better than “itch”.
    (7) lover
    (8) bored birthday, but will have a better one another year, if terrible birthday, will be so terrible that I want to avoid mentioning about birthday since it’s terrible.

    so fun, hahaha.

    This made me go hmmm..

  17. Posted February 19, 2011 at 6:23 am

    I would rather not be caught in either side…but this is truly fun.

  18. Posted February 19, 2011 at 3:13 pm

    very enjoyable to read, hmms. i felt exactly the same as you.

  19. Posted February 20, 2011 at 1:28 am

    Yes I saw this post but was looking for some proper time to read it, for I enjoy your hmmm.
    I don’t know what is drool, but oily hair won’t do for me.
    The rest I think I agree, but the platonic lover and stranger—-you need to be strong and have patience about the friend whom you can’t see.
    With the stranger you are taking a risk,it could work out also.

  20. Posted February 20, 2011 at 7:31 am

    I did find myself going hmmmm to some of these! Great post, really fun.

  21. Posted February 21, 2011 at 12:34 am
