I'd rather...

I think we can all agree that life doesn’t always work the way weu’d like it to. We make our plans, and sometimes even the simplest task doesn’t happen the way we wanted it to. We don’t always get what we want, or even what we prefer. And I think we all have our “I’d rather’s.” I do.

I’d rather be in the mountains than at the beach.

I'd rather be with Bruce than with anyone else.

I’d rather have 20 dogs, all at the same time, than parent one child.

I'd rather go to the doctor than have to go to the dentist. But I’d rather go to the dentist than have to go to the hairdresser!
I’d rather clean any room in the house than wash the dishes (Or better yet, I’d rather pay someone else to do ALL of that for me!)

I'd rather be barefoot than have to go shoe shopping.

I’d rather not do anything than do something half-heartedly.

I’d rather watch any other type of movie than watch a chick flick.

I’d rather text than talk on the phone.

I’d rather be employed full-time than be a starving artist. But I’d rather spend my time creating than climbing the corporate ladder.

I’d rather have silence than have background noise.

I’d rather ignore difficult people than confront them.

But I’d rather confront difficult people than have them hurt someone else.

I’d rather go coffee-less than have to drink a cup of cruddy brew.

So - what about you? What would YOU rather?
