I'm still alive.

I don't know where my motivation for blogging went. It's not like I don't have the time - as an unemployed girl, time is what I do have. As I said on the my other blog (and posted a few karl pictures) we just got over a stomach bug. But other than that, pretty much nada.

So I'll leave you with a question ...

If you had to pick between losing taste or hearing, what would you choose?

Taste. Then maybe I'd be perma-skinny.

Hands down taste. My dad has been very hard of hearing since he was 3 yrs old and I've seen him struggle.

Definitely taste. Much like Birdee said, it would help with my weight loss! Also, I think it would be a lot easier to live life without being able to taste vs. not being able to hear.

I'd pic taste. It would kill me to never hear my children's voices again.

taste!
I already suffer from awful hearing and it is the pits.
I miss you...

Jennifer said...

I'd go with taste. I'd be sure to lose weight then, but I'm sure I'd regret it later.

Hearing is a bit important as a Music teacher.

Definitely taste, but I'd miss it. I'd worry that I'd eat something bad though and not know it.

Hearing- life without good food it is a life not worth living!

I would give up Taste. Hands down...I think you learn to 'feel' things in your mouth. When I had my tonsils out I couldn't tast for over a month (a nerve issue?) and I swear, I felt my foods. Salty foods felt "puckery", rich foods tastes "slick"...it is so hard to describe. It was just like a different way to taste,and I got used to it. When I DID get my taste back it was almost too much- I now have a blander taste over all, and avoid most sweets. Weird huh?

I would definitely pick hearing. I could learn to read lips and sign, but I like different foods too much to not ever be able to taste them again.

That's tough! As a total foodie, I'd hate to give up taste. But as someone mentioned above, it'd kill me not to be able to hear my child's voice ever again. I could live without yummies to hear him say I Love You for the first time.

I would give up taste. Even though I love to eat, I think I'd be sad if I couldn't hear my children.
