Would You Rather: Questions Answered #11-20

11. Would you rather spend three weeks cleaning the bathrooms at LAX or spend 48 hours under observation in a psychiatric ward?

I would probably prefer to spend the three weeks cleaning the bathrooms at LAX. 48 hours under observation really can be damaging, and quite frankly, if it's in isolation, that would be a nightmare. At least at LAX there is a silver lining experience that could come out of that work. 

12. Would you rather get married through an arranged marriage or spend the rest of your life being single and never dating anyone?

Arranged marriage. That may sound crazy, but there are at least some odds of liking the person you are set up with. Heck, it might even be a hit. Being single and never dating, really, never sharing life with anyone - that's absolutely zero odds. I'll take my chances with the arranged marriage.

13. Would you rather have the next year off at full pay or get paid double at your current job for the next year?

Paid double. I actually love my job, and to be paid double with the same vacation time would be fantastic. Plus, the extra money would give me so much more opportunities and financial support for options for my vacations. 

14. Would you rather eat three whole raw habanero peppers or perform CPR on a stranger?

CPR on stranger. At least I'm potentially saving a life, the worst, helping someone in dire need. What would be the point of eating raw habanero peppers? 

15. Would you rather live without TV for the rest of your life or give up coffee for good?

Give up coffee. I like coffee, but I also like tea. TV is essential for me in baseball season. Coffee is not worth that at all. Not even close. 

16. Would you rather give up your smartphone for two months or give up alcohol for a year?

Alcohol for a year. With my job, I survive on a smartphone. And personally, from my music, to blogs, to reading news, to whatever, my smartphone - much like everyone these days - is very essential. 

17. Would you rather give up Instagram forever or eat the same meal for the rest of your life?

Ummm, bye Instagram. I love ya, but I like food more. 

18. Would you rather not use email for a week or be hungover for four days?

Being hungover for four days sounds like hell. Really. I hate being hungover for a few minutes. I would give up e-mail for a week for sure. 

19. Would you rather win a free laptop or a trip to Hawaii?

Hahaha - hello Hawaii! I'll buy my own laptop, thanks. 

20. Would you rather eat roadkill for the rest of your life or have every person in the world sound like Gilbert Gottfried?

This is a rather weird one. Actually, seriously weird. I'll go with having everyone sound like Gilbert Gottfried. Sounds like a "them" problem. Give me something else to eat and enjoy rather than "roadkill"

4:44 - Jay-Z Pulls Me Back

I admit it. At one point, this Brooklyn-born-and-raised guy who narrated his growth to the tunes of one Jay-Z, believed that those days were gone. Over the last two or three albums, I sort of gave up on Jay-z being that voice that I can identify with. That voice that always speaks and holds truth to what I can relate to. Upon growing into a possible billionaire, and rapping about having money and whatever it was, I was one of those fans who decided, you know, will just listen to the hits. 
Partly, I was disappointed. He went from reaching in and representing the inner city heart of anyone who understood the words and sounds beyond just the catchy hooks and killer beats of what mainstream (and white) America heard.

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 7/16/17

3 Up 
1. Surprised Mother/Bride - I'm not one for sappy stories, but I am a sucker for a good story that reflects the circle of life, and the meaning of everything happening for a reason. Give this story a quick read - a mother who recently lost her son, has the recipient of her son's heart in a transplant show up at her wedding. Good stuff. Just good stuff. 
2. MLB All-Star Break - The MLB hit it out of the park earlier this week with an amazing time that included an awesome Home Run Derby, and some shenanigans that made for a good All-Star Game.
2A. Aaron Judge - Kudos to the big man for not only going along with the budding hype, but adding some legitimacy to it with that Home Run Derby performance. 
3. Roger Federer - Another Wimbledon Championship for the vet as he continues to hold off the young flock on the rise, yet continuing to add to an already super impressive legacy.

Dope Sports Threads - 2017 MLB All-Star Break

You knew I had to post on everything aesthetic during the MLB All-Star Break festivities. I just had to! Yes, I am a nerd for this stuff - always have been, always will be. And unlike some baseball fans, the All-Star Break is still must-see for me. I enjoy the Home Run Derby. I enjoy the All-Star Game. I appreciate seeing the guys enjoy the game that I love as well.

I'll leave my continued feelings (and rants) for fans who continue to push back against the progression of the game of baseball. For now, I'll just leave it be. I'm sure the rest of this post may drive them nuts too. Oh well. Here are some things that caught my eye this week:

Turning Thirty-Two

Today, I turn thirty-two. There is just something odd about this age - like twenty-three was, or twenty-eight was, you know, the mile markers in between the rest stops - that just doesn't carry the super significance as 21 and 30 did. Although, at this stage of life, there are many mile markers, and those celebratory rest stops are much, much fewer in between. 
Though, it wasn't too long ago I passed a big one - thirty! And if you remember, I loved becoming AND being thirty. To be honest, I enjoyed being thirty-one, and really, thirty-two already seems kick-ass. Call me crazy, my thirties have been VERY enjoyable. 
But as I turn thirty-two, there isn't much significance in the number, but truly, it's about the changes in myself. Thirty was just two years away, and I am already better than that version of myself. This year marked ten years since I've graduated from college (Things I Would tell My college Self), and I am a much better version of myself compared to t…
