This or That: 32 Facts on the 23rd Day

Today is February 23 -- it's my birthday! It's actually my 32nd birthday to be exact.

I figured I would revisit this birthday theme of giving you a set number of facts about me that correlate to the age I'm turning. I saw someone do this last year, but with a twist. Instead of me telling you 32 facts, I'm having the hubs -- Ari -- take the reins. There usually isn't anything special about turning 32. But since it is the inverse of the date I was born, why not! To make it easier on him ("he don't know talking good like me and you"), I made this a "This or That" style. Keep in mind that these are his answers to my questions. Some might be right; some might be wrong.

OK hubs -- take it away!

1. Star Wars or Star Trek

Star Wars -- too easy. Darth Vader beats any Klingon

2. Cookies or Donuts

Tough one as you sometimes ask for donuts, but in the long run, cookies prevail.

3. Cats or Dogs

Dogs. No one understands cat people.

4. Wine or Cider

Cider -- sweet, not dry

5. Morning or Evening

Not sure, but you've always gotten up before me, so morning.

6. Bags or Shoes

Shoes -- just judging by volume

7. Exercise or Healthy Diet

Exercise -- I know you want those carbs

8. Sneakers or Heels

Sneakers -- comfort is king (queen)

9. Action or Comedy


10. Fiction or Non-Fiction


11. Football or Tennis


12. Staycations or Vacations

Staycations because you like to travel, but you like to feel "at home" as well

13. Movies or Musicals

Movies -- I think I like musicals more

14. Ryan Gosling or Charlie Hunnam

Charlie Hunnam, to my chagrin

15. Cape Town or Tulum

Cape Town because black people live there and they speak English

16. The Breakfast Club or The Nightmare Before Christmas

The Nightmare Before Christmas - I think at one time it was The Breakfast Club, but the sheer amount of merch and cake decorations over the years have reinforced your love for Nightmare.

17. Blue or Pink

Blue -- although your recent pink and gray infatuation makes me unsure

18. Sunrise or Sunset

Sunset because sunrise forces you out of that comfy bed

19. Coffee or Tea

Tea -- assuming chai falls into that category, and because you won't talk to me when I have coffee breath.

20. Roses or Peonies

Peonies -- roses are too basic for you

21. Judge Judy or The People's Court

Judge Judy -- you can't deal with the nonsense on those other judge shows

22. Loud Talkers or Touchy-Feely People

People who talk loudly because you don't want people touching you!

23. Milkshake or Boba Tea

Milkshake, although an avocado shake with boba is your perfect hybrid

24. Robots or Cyborgs

Robots. Darth Vader may be a cyborg, but so many of your other favorites are robots, like Chappie, Ultron, etc.

25. Los Angeles or New York

New York -- fashion shows and cleanliness

26. Trivia or Board Games

Trivia, unless Sushi Go has changed your mind

27. Veep or Parks & Rec

Parks & Rec - treat yo'self!

28. Bad Singers or Bad Comedians

Bad comedians because bad singers make you mute the TV

29. 1980s or 1920s Fashion


30. Leggings or Joggers

Leggings because not everyone can pull off the joggers trend like I can

31. Singing in the Shower or Singing in the Car

Singing in the car because we do that all the time

32. Hats or Sunglasses

Sunglasses or your eyes will melt!
