  • Would you rather have a good friend in every town in the USA or
  • Would you rather have guaranteed free temporary lodging at an adequate motel in every city in the USA?

I can't keep up with the friends that I do have adequately. I'll take the lodging.

yeah, I'm with Maggie. I don't see how choice #1 could work. I certainly couldn't keep up with the thousands of friends I had (would I only get in touch when I was coming to their town?).

So I too will choose free motel rooms.

I'll go with the lodging too, because even if I did have a friend in every town, I wouldn't expect them to put me up every time I came waltzing through.

Me three. Even if I did have a friend in every town, I wouldn't expect them to put me up when I came visiting.

Yes, I stutter.

lodging.

I have enough of a hard time keeping up with the friends and family I already have :)

Neither, because I'd be too busy finishing last year's Christmas cards to travel much.

Wow.
None of you want friends.
I'm amazed.

I want friends, but I am obligated to my friends. If they are really good friends I would be interested in what was going on in their lives, I would want to hang out with them or chat with them. How could I possibly be a good friend to thousands of people? I don't see how I could keep up my end of the bargain. Having fewer friends makes me treasure the ones I have all the more.

I'm with Chuck. I love having friends, but the question didn't stipulate that I had to give up the friends I already have... many of whom live in cities that I would like to visit. And because I've chosen option B, I can now (hypothetically) visit these friends without imposing on their hospitality. Miami... Atlanta... NYC... Chicago... Honolulu... Co. Springs... yeah, I'm all set, thanks!

Woops, that's Hilo, not Honolulu.

Ick. Who wants to stay in a motel?

Posted by: Patti M. at June 18, 2007 3:51 PM

Patti, apparently BOB does. Perhaps the two of you should talk. ;-)

Maybe he can go on vacation by himself, if that's what he wants.

Posted by: Patti M. at June 18, 2007 4:09 PM

I'm fine with an "adequate" motel. As long as the room is clean and quiet I don't really care if it's a motel vs. hotel. I certainly stayed in one often enough when I was travelling to KS 6X a year. I'd prefer a nice full service hotel of course but you ain't gonna get that everywhere (Mcpherson, KS for one).

Posted by: B.O.B. (bob) at June 18, 2007 4:31 PM

LOL. Did it say "motel"? Oh well, I don't like to travel that much, anyway.

You might like it more if you could stay in a swanky hotel. ; )
