Would You Rather #26
In dramaland, leading ladies often find themselves torn between the love of two equally attractive men — a choice none of us would want to make! But what if you did have to pick between the frustrating lawyer and the adorkable police officer? In this weekly feature, we ask you to make the difficult decisions — and we aren’t limiting our options to dreamy oppas.
Vote via the poll and feel free to use the comments to explain exactly how you were able to choose! So, Beanies:
WOULD YOU RATHER #25 RESULTS
In the battle of mind versus body, the winner — but not by much — was body. A little over 54% of voters would prefer having their 18-year-old physique back because there’s little to no downside to having youthful bod again. On the other side of the coin, though, Beanies found valid reasons for avoiding the perfect memory option, and according to the final vote and comments section, slightly more than half of voters deemed those downsides not worth it in the long run.
For most, the largest negative in having a perfect memory was not being able to forget the bad memories along with the good. As @attiton reminded us, “being able to forget is a gift, not a curse,” and other Beanies, like @lostpanda, have memories that they would prefer to consign to oblivion or, at the very least, not recall in vivid detail. So for those who saw the flaws with having a perfect memory, having an 18-year-old body again was the obvious choice, especially for Beanies like @lordcobol and @laurensophie, who claim to be far enough removed from their teenaged years to appreciate the benefits of having a (presumably) healthy and youthful body.
However, the vote wouldn’t be so close if it were not for Beanies, like @welh640 and @oasia, who saw the practicality in having perfect memory, especially when it comes to one’s career. For them, they rationalized that the good memories would balance out the bad ones, but I think I’m with @ladybluestocking on this one: “Having a perfect memory would just give my neurotic brain more fodder for late night regret sessions.” And considering my current body would also protest getting out of bed the next morning with audible noises, having my 18-year-old body sounds preferable.
