Truth or Dare, anyone?

You see one of these every once in a while, where a blogger desperate for something to post reaches into the tired old meme bag that came attached to the "Welcome to (insert blog host here), have a good time blogging" email we all got when we started blogging.

Down, down, we reach into the bag and stir about at the bottom hoping to touch something we haven't pulled before, or haven't seen posted on another blog in a while... Down, stir, shake, and out comes:

Imagine you're single, unattached, unencumbered by social constraints. Imagine all of the blogosphere were equally unencumbered, recipients of some great cosmic event which rendered all relationships null and void. A Tower of Babel for Marital/Committed Relations.

We all came to build a tower together, paired up two by two like the livestock in a different book, and for our efforts we were all released in our sleep and allowed to pair up again with any of the persons there, to wander off and pick-up where we sort of left-off but not with the fellow/lady who's name escapes you now but you knew there was one there before, you have video.

Who do you think you'd pair or team up with, and why? And no, you can't wimp out and pick your current spouse/SO. Only cowards do that. Be adventurous.

Me? Who would I pair up with? Who's hand would I take in mine before leading him off and living my own "Midnight at the Oaisis"? Well, it depends on my mood, I guess. Being a woman and all, you know how fickle, indecisive, vapor-ridden, and mercenary we are. I'd have several, tattooed with the days of the week just to keep from being confused.

No, really, that's silly, but I can see that there are a few who make the cut Post-Cosmic Event.

You're not going to leave until I tell you, are you?

Ha. You first. And no, just because there's a website somewhere out there with the Swedish Bikini Team does not make them bloggers, so they're ineligible.

Mama, could you let all the LC's know that I'm w/o power and we have no idea when we'll get it back on? We made it through Jeanne with no real damage, but power went out at 9:20 a.m. I'm at my brother's house to shower and have dinner, then heading back to take care of the house. Gotta run. Hugs from Soggy Florida.

No takers, I see. I'm still thinking. Maybe everyone else is as well. :-)

Dawn Olson, no reason why.

Dawn Olsen's a good one. If I have to be adventurous, I would most likely pick Jonah Goldberg, who's technically a columnist, but who is referenced by the blogosphere so much, he might as well have after his name.
