  • Chad Peterson Plays Would You Rather...

    Chad Peterson is a former actor, intermittent writer, daily arts marketer, fantasy sports guru and certified dog owner.  He has written short fiction for several literary magazines and has been recognized for his poetry by the Jo-Anne Hirschfield Memorial Poetry Awards and by the Writers’ Institute at UW-Madison.  He has completed two novels (provided that publication is not necessary to earn the label of "completed"), and edited the book "Brother of the Stones" by Eugene Baldwin, which is available for only $2.99 on Kindle and which you should all buy because Gene's stuff is FREAKing great.  Chad is a member of the Literary Writers Network of Chicago and the former Managing Editor of 10,000 Tons of Black Ink literary magazine.  He does not have a blog or a podcast. 


    1) Eat only roadkill for the rest of your life OR Have everyone else in the world sound like Gilbert Gottfried? I choose Gilbert.  It will make my soothing baritone stand out and make me the envy of all that I encounter.  Unless mankind evolves to prefer the sound of Gilbert since that's the norm now...  Never mind. I choose roadkill (with a nice bernaise sauce.)

    2) Always have to say everything on your mind OR Never be able to speak again? Option A does not represent any kind of change for me.

    3) Watch your parents have sex every day for the rest of your life OR Join in once to stop it? The former. Who am I to force my parents to stop having sex every day (in this hypothetical world you've created.)  That's kind of an asshole move, isn't it? Having to watch is a small price to pay to keep them happy.
