This past weekend I was flipping channels trying to recover my sanity by vegging out in front of the TV, and I came across a show that was asking contestants if they would rather eat dog food for a year or be shot in the knee.
For some reason, this turned into quite a family discussion, and I thought about it long after I’d gone to bed that night.
I know, random, right?
But if that were seriously a choice, I think I would choose to eat dog food for a year, although it might depend on who the person was who was shooting me in the knee.
You see, if you get shot in the cartilage that holds the kneecap in place, I’m pretty sure that’s irreplaceable and I would be crippled for life. But if the shooter could place it just right, it might heal quickly and be okay. Generally, though, knee injuries are hard to overcome and plague you long after it’s healed (yeah, I ripped up my knee during high school and sometimes it still bugs me.) So after remembering that, I went back to my original decision of the dog food for a year.
The thing about the dog food is that it probably wouldn’t be nutritionally balanced and I’d have to carefully choose what kind to eat. And plug my nose while I ate it. And be very, very hungry in order to eat it in the first place. Hey, I wonder if that could count as a diet?
Thankfully, I don’t have to really make that choice, but it was sort of interesting to think about. If you had to answer the question, what would you pick? Eat dog food for a year or be shot in the knee? A dilemma to be sure.
