I'd Rather

"I'd rather" a lot of things. Tonight, for example, I'd rather make a list of things I'd rather do than read or grade papers. So, here you go.

  1. I'd rather wear sweatpants and a t-shirt than pretty much anything in the world.
  2. I'd rather live in the city than in the county. 
  3. I'd rather have dogs than cats.
  4. I'd rather cook for friends than go out for dinner.
  5. I'd rather be single than go on dates just for the sake of going on dates.
  6. I'd rather be alone than miserable.
  7. I'd rather love my job than make a lot of money.
  8. I'd rather spend time with the people I love now than regret missing out on their company later.
  9. I'd rather take a long walk in the snow than on the beach.
  10. I'd rather walk in the rain than use an umbrella
  11. I'd rather eat ice cream than cake.
  12. I'd rather be fat than mean.
  13. I'd rather walk a mile in your shoes than repeat my own mistakes.
  14. I'd rather tell the truth than lie but that's easier said than done sometimes.
  15. I'd rather have a very small circle of supporters than busloads of people who are just along for the ride.
  16. I'd rather be cheated on than be a cheater.
  17. I'd rather bear the brunt of your anger than thrust my own anger on you.
  18. I'd rather be understood than liked.
  19. I'd rather be respected than famous.
  20. I'd rather have the full use of my left leg back than have perfect vision.
  21. I'd rather relive high school than college because I think college would have been better if I'd made different decisions in high school.
  22. I'd rather be a famous musician than a good athlete.
  23. I'd rather have five minutes with the son I never met than 24 hours with anyone else.
  24. I'd rather get married than live the rest of my life alone except #6 & #7.
  25. I'd rather be a Cardinals fan who never sees a winner than be a Cubs fan.
  26. I'd rather vacation in a cabin at the lake than an five-star hotel.
  27. I'd rather be a successful writer than a great professor.
  28. I'd rather be rich than poor except #8.
  29. I'd rather be judged for my faults than hated for misgivings.
  30. I'd rather ask the questions than give the answers.
  31. I'd rather sing in front of 60,000 people than 10.
  32. I'd rather see my teammates successful than taste victory myself.
  33. I'd rather go fishing than sit on the beach.
  34. I'd rather learn your story than wonder who you are.
  35. I'd rather stay up all night than wake up early.

What would you rather?
