My children often engage me in long, meaningful conversations around the question "Would you rather..."
Would you rather smell dog poop or cow poop? Would you rather fall off this side of the bridge or that side? Would you rather get knocked out in the head or the jaw?
A byproduct of would you rather is: "what would you be like?" Which is a request for me to pantomime my reaction to the smelling of various critter poop, falling off of alternating sides of the bridge, and being knocked out in the jaw or head, respectively.
My kids mostly just interrogate me, fight, and yell at and belittle each other at every opportunity, but once in a while they put their two heads together with a goal and the world becomes a better place.
