Okay, normally i just ignore those little questions that LJ asks you every day, but the one for today seems pretty dumb.

"If you had to give up swimming, skiing, hiking, or biking for the rest of your life, which would you choose, and why?"

How many people in the world swim _and_ ski _and_ hike _and_ bike on a regular basis? Cause that's the only set of people for whom this question is going to pose a particular challenge. How bout i give up skiing _and_ biking? I don't really plan on ever doing either of them.

In other news, Pavillions _did_ have easter candy when i stopped by on the way home, and it was on sale, though not by a huge amount. Only 50% off. I still picked up a reasonable amount of it though :)

It's actually pretty common up here in New England. Swim and bike in the summer, ski in the winter, hike most of the year.

Well, never being able to do something is more awkward then not doing something regularly. Anyhow, I have no interest in skiing.

Of course, I don't bike. I can't bike to places, since my vision is too poor for that to be safe. But I wouldn't necessarily want to give up any potential to ever bike again.

I used to like swimming, but I generally avoid it these days for health reasons. But again, I'd rather not give it up 100% for the rest of my life.

But I can imagine people getting this question who are physically incapable of at least two of these activities. The question does make some rather annoying assumptions about your abilities.

Hahaha. I'll gladly give up hiking.

The only one of those I do with even a semblance of regularity is biking, but I'd have a hard time with it. I haven't had a chance to go skiing in years, but I really want to. I seldom go swimming, but I wouldn't want to be unable to go in the water next time I'm at the beach. And does just walking around through the local woods count as hiking? Not to mention some of my extended family is into *real* hiking. Nope, I'm keeping all of 'em.
