I was helping out with J’s class on a trip recently and some of the 7 year old children started playing ‘Would you rather?’  You know the game, you ask a question and you have to decide between the two answers.  It went something like this…

Would you rather have chocolate or a sandwich?

Would you rather go to school or to the beach?

Would you rather wear blue or pink?

Would you rather be murderer or a killer?  (yes really – there followed an interesting discussion about the difference between the two).

We continued in this vein for a while with some silly questions and some rather pertinent ones before, finally, the killer question arrived…

Would you rather live with your mummy or your daddy?

J gave me a sideways glance, thought about it for a couple of minutes then announced:  “Daddy”.
