What the...?!

If you're on Facebook, you've probably seen the quizzes: Which Disney Princess Are You? (I'm Belle), Which Character of "The Big Bang Theory" Are You? (I'm Amy Farrah-Fowler--a result I LOVED), What Country Are You? (Switzerland--a result I got twice despite choosing different answers the second time around. Apparently I am a pacifist and didn't know it).

(By the way, you too would take tons of Facebook quizzes if you found yourself struggling to stay awake in the middle of the night with a baby in your arms and a smart phone in your hand.) 

Today's quiz was Which State Should You Live In? (California--a result I would like to officially dispute). These quizzes are quite silly, and I usually roll my eyes at the questions and my choices. This one particular question had me stumped for a full two-and-a-half minutes though:

Um...I am not "comfortable" confronting ANY of those (especially with my horrible night vision)! I'm sure probably no one is, but I found myself seriously weighing which of these awful choices was the best. How fast are alligators? Can I outrun one? Are grizzly bears fast? Can I outrun one of THOSE? (Note to self: start running for exercise.) Would either an alligator or grizzly bear chase me for no good reason (I hate being chased!)? Is an alligator or a grizzly bear more dumb? Am I smarter than either of them? I knew "mugger" was the last thing I would choose (hence the reason "New York" was not my test result).

I ended up choosing grizzly bear. I suppose the fact that alligators slither is what ultimately turned me off. And choosing the bear is probably what sealed my fate. I mean, there's a bear sewn on the California flag for crying out loud.

I got California, too! Not cool. I also was terrified by that question -- I ended up choosing mugger though even though all the choices give me a bit of anxiety!

Hope all is well in DC and hope to see y'all next time you're in Texas! xo!

I'd totally chose a mugger! I think I could shoot a human mugger easier than I could a cute grizzly bear....and I'm not sure how successful shooting an alligator would be....hmm. Texas would be my state, with a gun on my hip, outside, alone in the middle of the night!

Anxiety for sure!

We are doing well -- I hope you're great too! We will be in Texas -- New Branfels -- in August, so maybe we can arrange a get together!

I guess I assumed I was going to be that case, I also might have chosen mugger! But, unlike you, I wouldn't let the cuteness of a grizzly bear get to me. I'm afraid my gun would be no match for a grizzly, and an alligator would be too slithery and sneaky for me to shoot to defend myself...heck, I still feel anxious trying to decide!
