Today’s would you rather question is courtesy of the lovely Lisa of The Golden Spoons so don’t blame me when you rock in the corner and cry trying to answer it.
I mean, that is what I did when I really thought about it.
I kept saying to myself, “But this is too hard. It is like asking me which of my children I love more (p.s. the answer is always the one who is not whining at that particular moment, duh). I can’t give up TV OR books. That wouldn’t be fair!!!” (said in my best whiny voice…yes, I see the irony).
This question seems to be especially good for the summer, because there is something so fantastic about binge-watching a TV show or curling up for hours with a great book. Even as an adult, you feel kind of justified to use the summer to enjoy what you love.
Here at The Dose of Reality, it is a well known fact that we enjoy ourselves some TV. Whether it be viewing the reality shows or more high-brow shows like Game of Thrones or House of Cards, we are not strangers to having back-up remote controls for our back-up remote controls.
You may not realize, though, that we feel the same way about reading. Neither Dose Girl is ever without a book. We read EVERY.SINGLE.DAY. no matter what is happening. We LOVE reading. So much so that when we go for a while not loving a book (still always reading, though), we feel less happy.
This book isn’t going to read itself, you know.
So, when push came to shove on this question, we both chose reading.
We would give up TV before we would give up books.
Even as I type the words, I feel myself get a little shaky. Because, hello, TV. But, I know in my heart of my hearts we chose wisely.
I mean I am pretty sure.
This is too much. I have to stop thinking about it now. The question is turned over to you Dose Peeps. Would you rather give up TV or books? And this is forever, by the way. FOREVER.
