This or That
Summer or Winter? I'm more of a summer person these days, though spring and fall are my favorites.
Chocolate or Vanilla? Chocolate most of the time, though I like vanilla with chocolate on it. Let’s dream big.
Batman or Superman? Superman, you’ve got to admire a super hero who can deceive his closest friends with a simple pair of glasses.
Comedy or Horror? Comedy, though both when done well can make you pee your pants.
Hamburgers or Hotdogs? Hotdogs.
Mac or PC? PC…though I’ve never really tried a Mac. I have tried a Big Mac though.
Aquarium or Zoo? If you’re forcing me to go, probably an aquarium. It usually involves less meaningless walking.
Super Strength or Super Intelligence? I’ve found that my Super Intelligence works more to my advantage.
Dogs or Cats? Dogs. Cats are secretly plotting to take over the world.
Pancake or Waffles? Pancakes. Waffles remind me of the back of my legs after I’ve been sitting too long in a lawn chair.
