We come up with "Would You Rathers" around here a lot. Tonight, Garrett said, "Daddy, would you rather have six hands on each arm or a scorpion tail?"
Troy replied, "A scorpion tail."
"Why?" Garrett asked.
Troy answered, "Because if I have to be a freak, I may as well be deadly."
Just a minute or two later, Matthew said, "Would you rather have a lion named Peter Pan or Matthew?" (Because he doesn't really have the hang of these questions yet.)
Troy said, "You, Buddy. I choose you."
"No. I think you get the lion either way. His question is whether you want to name your lion Peter Pan or Matthew," I explained.
"OH! Then Peter Pan. Otherwise things would be confusing."
