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”.
