Ask yourself, WWCLD?

Question: If you had to choose between: a)being a writer who loses the hand you write with or b)being a runner who loses a leg which won you the gold... which would you choose?"

Better yet, just ask yourself, "What Would Candyland Do?" Personally, I'd keep my arm. I'm not sure how I'd clip my toenails or shave delicate areas (sorry) with only one upper limb. If you're scratching your head on the decision, take a look at Moon Rat's carefully constructed answer, (thesis, really), over on Editorial Ass.

Also, to prevent any loss of limb, check out this book:

I'd keep the leg. I could totally learn how to type one-handed. Although my right-handed handwriting is soooo bad.

Candyland said...

Maybe learning to write with your feet would surpass bad right-hand handwriting.

And you'd probably be the coolest person ever if you had one hand and two feet but refused to use your hand. Imagine eating in public.

I'm rethinking my answer now just to see if I could pull this scenario off.

I might keep my arm too. I mean, there are wheelchairs right?

Candyland said...

Exactly. AND a prosthetic leg might be easier than arm, too. And they look less freaky-deaky.

Slamdunk said...

Yes, I say arm as well. It would be too difficult running down my little ones without 2 legs.

Ack! I can't decide! I'd have to flip a coin. But really, couldn't I just shave my head instead?

Candyland said...

Oh Linda you'd still be beautiful. Hardly fair.
