Along time ago my boss, who was also a good friend and an extremely successful business woman asked me “Tammie, would you rather be extremely beautiful and really stupid, or extremely ugly and really smart?”
I’ve always loved questions like that. I’m the one at the party that asks people if they would cut their pinky toe off with a butter knife for a million bucks.
I thought her question was so ironic because she was both beautiful (men fighting over her beautiful) and the girl who handed everyone their asses in Trivial Pursuit. She was fluent in French, owned her own business, and went to some foreign boarding school (ok it’s cuz she got kicked out of Catholic HS, but it was somewhere awesome like Hogwarts I think.)
My answer off the cuff was “ugly & smart”. She said she would choose beauty over intelligence EVERY time.
Now that I’m old and wrinkly, I kinda’ wanna to change my answer.
But hit me up with YOUR choice. Beautiful and stupid? Or ugly and super intelligent? Oh & go ahead and answer the pinky toe question while your at it.
