In a post yesterday, I posed twenty “either/or” questions just to see how many other bloggers might pick up the gauntlet and take a shot at expressing their “this way or that way” (or neither way) preferences. I thank those of you who chose to respond.
Should anyone be interested, here are my answers.
Window or aisle? Definitely the aisle. I am tall and have long legs, so the window seat is way too confining.
White bread or whole wheat? Whole wheat, never white.
Car or pickup? Car. I’ve never owned a truck, if you don’t count the toy firetruck I had as a kid.
iPhone or Android? Since I gave up my BlackBerry in 2010, it’s been iPhone all the way.
Foreign or domestic? Foreign cars, foreign movies, foreign beer, domestic just about everything else.
Hip hop or pop? Not hip hop; mostly classic rock.
Watch TV or read a book? I probably watch more TV than I should, but I do read at least two books a month.
Summer or winter? Of the two, I prefer summer. But actually my favorite season is autumn.
Daytime or nighttime? Nighttime because I’m a dreamer.
Hot or cold? Cold. It’s easier to get warm if you’re cold than it is to get cool when you’re hot. (So why, then, do I like summer better than winter?)
New or old? New when it comes to technology. Otherwise, whatever works best.
Fiction or non-fiction? Fiction. It takes me to places and times I’ve never been before and introduces me to fascinating characters I would never otherwise have known. I do like historical fiction, too.
Poetry or prose? Prose. I rarely understand poetry if it’s not used as the lyrics for popular songs. Put poetry to music and I might enjoy it more.
Democrat or Republican? Technically I’m registered as an independent, but I’m a liberal and rarely, especially these days, support Republican candidates or causes.
Windows or Mac? Windows. My wife and daughter have Macs and I don’t like them one bit. That said, I use my iPhone a lot more than I use my Windows laptop these days.
Mountains or ocean? Mountains, especially when they offer an ocean view.
Whole or skimmed? Neither. I use 2% low fat for my morning cereal.
Coffee or tea? Coffee. My mother used to make me drink tea sweetened with honey when I was sick and now I associate tea with not feeling well, which is why I never drink it.
Football or baseball? College football, Major League baseball.
Soda or pop? Trick question. They are the same thing and what it’s called depends upon what part of the country you live in.
