Friday Five: Decisions, Decisions

Songbird writes over at RGBP:
Since I've been in the midst of a discernment process, I've done a lot of reflecting on how we make decisions. But don't worry, I'm not going to ask you to reveal a dark story about a poor decision, or a self-flagellating story about an embarrassing one. Let's keep it simple and go with five word pairs. Tell us which word in the pair appeals to you most, and after you've done all five, give us the reason why for one of them.

Here they are:

Try not to pull on the big cat's tail when you answer. :-)

1) Cake or Pie: PIE! Wait...cake with fruity or creamy filling between layers and buttercream frosting! wait...mixed berry cream pie...PECAN PIE!! umm...YES.
2) Train or Airplane: I love the idea of trains, and if we could get our American train act together the way Europe has, definitely train. Until then, airplane. Unless we're talking about very short trips, like from my house into Chicago (1:23 by train, can't really fly there...). :-)
3) Mac or PC: MAC!! We've had Macs since the Apple IIe when I was in 7th grade. I defected briefly in seminary but I'm back with an apple vengeance.
4) Univocal or Equivocal: mostly equi-vocal, but sometimes you just gotta be univocal, sadly.
5) Peter or Paul: Peter!

I'm a 7 on the Enneagram--I don't like to close off options, and I'm petrified of making a decision that might not make me as happy as the other one would don't want to go to an all-vegetarian restaurant with me because I'll have to order most everything on the menu so we'll be there all day. LOL.


  1. Note to self: avoid vegetarian restaurants with Teri...

  2. Buttercream frosting. . . .YES! A favorite dessert order was a deep chocolate cake with white buttercream frosting. A home-based baker supplied a local eatery. Unfortunately the eatery has closed:(

  3. I'll take the buttercream frosting and leave off the cake. Otherwise, it's gotta be pie. Unless it's angel food. I can't really decide that one, either.
