Look – A No-Brainer

Would you rather be super-intelligent or extremely good-looking?




My first response was ‘intelligent’ but then I couldn’t think of anything clever to write and I don’t need that kind of irony in my life; so I opted for ‘good-looking’ but then I looked in the mirror and I don’t need that kind of irony in my life (though I have had a life leading to a face that could use some ironing).

It’s neither or both, so I’ll take both. 

Don’t be surprised at my greed: you know how I feel about Maltesers; why should special characteristics be any different?  Actually, beauty isn’t a characteristic, is it?  It’s a gift.  So it’s not so much a box of Maltesers as a bag of Revels, and I don’t like the coffee or orange ones, so I’m not greedy at all.

Glad we sorted that out.

    I agree with you – bothhhh!
    The opening line of this post makes me think of the Maggie character in Extras, who always poses such questions to the Ricky Gervais character, like, “Would you rather be you with the brain of a chimpanzee, or a chimpanzee with your brain?” Hmmm, makes you think, hey?

      I’d forgotten those. They really hurt the brain, don’t they?

    What are they thinking? We’re bloggers for heaven’s sakes … can we be anything BUT gorgeous AND genius?

    Please can I have your chocolate and orange Revels? They’re my favourites (after maltesers of course)

    And I love your “face that’s in need of an iron”.
    PS did you get my email?

    Ooh, you answered my bonus question:


    I’ve opted for beauty . . . being clever can be so exhausting.

I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
