(Have no idea what this is in reference to? Read my earlier explanation.)

You have a brain tumor. Though there is no discomfort at the moment, this tumor would unquestionably kill you in six months. However, your life can (and will) be saved by an operation; the only downside is that there will be a brutal incision to your frontal lobe. After the surgery, you will be significantly less intelligent. You will still be a fully functioning adult, but you will be less logical, you’ll have a terrible memory, and you will have little ability to understand complex concepts or difficult ideas. The surgery is in two weeks. How do you spend the next fourteen days?

I like this question; I was expecting it to ask me whether or not to go ahead with the surgery, but then it threw a curveball. Reading would certainly take a huge priority, I would miss my books. Conversation would be another dedicated chunk of time, I love discussing ideas and sharing stories. I would of course make sure my financial and other affairs were in order. Ultimately, though, I would try to just work on acceptance and gratitude – I mean, at least I’ll still be pretty!
