As posted by yours truly at RevGalBlogPals:
Since I've been in the midst of a discernment process, I've done a lot of reflecting on how we make decisions. But don't worry, I'm not going to ask you to reveal a dark story about a poor decision, or a self-flagellating story about an embarrassing one. Let's keep it simple and go with five word pairs. Tell us which word in the pair appeals to you most, and after you've done all five, give us the reason why for one of them.
Here they are:
1) Cake or Pie — Cake!
2) Train or Airplane — Train!! Airplane!! Train!!
3) Mac or PC — PC (because I can never figure out how those intuitive Macs work, darn it!)
4) Univocal or Equivocal — Equivocal
5) Peter or Paul — Peter
Since I'm conflicted about number two, let me say this. I love the idea of trains. They are civilized. People ride on them in England. They seem cosmopolitan. But in the Northeast, they take a long time to get anywhere. They make me feel I'd just as soon drive my car. Airplanes, on the other hand, get me where I want to be in a hurry. Right up until they are oversold, or delayed. So I can see the appeal of either one.
How about you?
