Hot or Cold? Hmm…

Truthful Tuesday with PCGuyIV posed the question: Would you rather endure cold winter weather or hot summer weather?

Cold winter weather seems to be my body’s fiercest enemy so I’d rather the heat of summertime. Growing up in New York I didn’t complain about neither because it just was what it was and there was no way around it. “Snow days” weren’t as quickly declared back then as they are now so I spent many a days trudging the streets in deep snow to get to either school or work in frigid temperatures. People always say “Oh, you’re from New York so you should be used to this,” but during the 15 years I lived in Florida, getting assimilated to the scorching hot temps was par for the course and now cold air hits me like a ton of bricks. The weather in my current hometown has much milder temperatures so neither the cold nor heat are too overbearing.

Truthful Tuesday…this or that?

Thank you PCGuy for today’s light-hearted Truthful Tuesday questions. This is a welcoming break from other, more harsh truths we’re all having to face.

QUESTIONS (my responses are below)

  1. Coffee or Hot Tea?
  2. Soda or Iced Tea?
  3. House or Condo?
  4. Pie or Cobbler?
  5. Cornbread or Biscuits (The US kind)?
  6. Computer or Smart Phone?
  7. Hotel or Camping?
  8. Swimming Pool or Ocean?
  9. TV Shows or Movies?
  10. iOS (iPhone/iPad) or Android (Samsung, LG, et. al.)
  1. Coffee or Hot Tea? Definitely tea, preferably organic/herbal and caffeine-free.
  2. Soda or Iced Tea? Hmm! I’ll have to go with iced tea, though I haven’t had any in a long time. I really prefer water over everything.
  3. House or Condo? At this point in my life I’d choose a condo but a single-family house in a low-maintenance community would be an acceptable substitute.
  4. Pie or Cobbler? Ooooh, cobbler for sure! I baked two large peach cobblers during the holiday season (mainly for myself).
  5. Cornbread or Biscuits (The US kind)? Give me cornbread with a biscuit chaser! Sweet cornbread is even better.
  6. Computer or Smart Phone? It really depends on what I’m doing but I’d probably choose a computer over my phone (unless I could connect my phone to a bigger screen🤓).
  7. Hotel or Camping? No doubt, hotel. Camping is cool but so is central AC.
  8. Swimming Pool or Ocean? I’m not a swimmer so I prefer laying out at the beach. Ocean for 1, please!
  9. TV Shows or Movies? This one is most challenging only because some pretty good TV shows have been released in recent years (e.g. This Is Is) but I love a good old TCM movie.
  10. iOS (iPhone/iPad) or Android (Samsung, LG, et. al.) Give me iOS or give me rotary! Lol
