I know you can be overwhelmed, and I know you can be underwhelmed, but can you ever just be whelmed?

You know those days that you just know are going to be busy?

All you want is for the morning to go smoothly, because that will set the tone.

And if everything goes the way it should, it gives you hope that you’ll be able to leave the office at 5:30 with your sanity still in tact.

Sanity is questionable today.

So is 5:30.

I thought hump days were supposed to be way less stressful than this.

In any case, I thought I’d take a page out of Maxie’s book, and throw up a Would You Rather. A couple disclaimers:

1) I can’t even come close to the gross out factor that Maxie and Lilu have perfected, so this may be the tamest WYR ever.

2) I also can’t take full credit. Apparently the news anchors have taken to asking Would You Rathers on the streets now, and I saw this one on a clip and tweaked it a bit.

So, would you rather…

…give up your cell phone for a year? (assume you don’t have a land line at all, and you can’t borrow a friend’s for any extended period of time)

…give up sex for a year? (assume that this includes giving up any under-the-clothes play – solely making out and fondling)

And, as an afterthought, would you give the same answer and explanation if you knew it was going to be broadcast on the 6:00 news?

Last night we had a rather interesting conversation that ranged from relationships to wisdom teeth, from work to boob jobs.

Cla was telling us about getting her wisdom teeth taken out, and an additional (optional) procedure that, the surgeon warned her, might leave her chin permanently numb. She opted out of that one, preferring not to chance having a novocaine lack-of-feeling forever.

Later in the conversation, the topic turned to boob jobs (I don’t remember the segue…or if there was one), and Cla told us about a friend of hers with a newly acquired set. “But,” she said, “they were so hard! Plus, if it’s done wrong, you could lose sensation in your nipples.” We all agreed that that would be no good at all, but, given the common thread of losing feeling, it made me think of (a significantly tamer version of) Maxie’s Would You Rather.

SO…would you rather lose sensation in your nipples (I think the drawbacks are obvious), OR lose sensation in your chin (think drool, dropped food, etc. where everyone can see)?
