So a while back I posted a Chat question on long life or wealth to get your minds thinking. Today I’d like to pose another Chat question!

Question 3

If you could choose the sex of your unborn child, would you want to?

I saw this question and thought it was pretty neat since it’s something you can’t do no matter how advanced society and technology becomes (I wouldn’t think at least) I haven’t ever been pregnant or had any kids, but I know, just from being alive, that people are always asking women if they’d prefer to have a boy or girl. Most people I know have had an opinion on the matter and have leaned one way or the other for whatever their personal preference is. Even if you would ask the soon to be dad, he’s probably got an opinion as well.

My Thoughts

If I could choose…..I’d choose to have boys! From working with kids in school and in church, I feel that I can relate with boys better. I find it much easier to get down on their level and goof around with them. They are rough and tumble, wrestle and silliness. It could also be that I grew up with five cousins who are all boys and so that’s what makes me more comfortable! So if I could choose…..boys it would be!

What do you think about this?


CHAT – Boys or Girls?

So a while back I posted a Chat question on eye contact to start a little discussion. Today I’d like to post another Chat question as another conversation starter.

Question 2

Would you rather live longer or be wealthy?


My immediate thought was “this is such an easy question to answer. longer life”, but the more I think about it…..I’m almost wondering if being wealthy would be the more savory option.

My Thoughts

  • Pro to Living Longer – more time to experience places, events, etc.
  • Question to Living Longer – are you in bad/declining health because you are older/aging? if so, then this would be a disadvantage.
  • Pro to Being Wealthy – you have funds at your disposal to go to places, events, etc that you might not have been able to under normal circumstances.
  • Money doesn’t buy happiness. I’ve seen that a million times over. buuut if you are money smart and intelligent with it (ie not letting it run your life) then it could provide different experiences, etc to your life.

So honestly…I think I’d probably say be wealthy!  (though I do have to say….I feel slightly weird saying that)

What are your thoughts on the matter? 🙂
