Pick One

I am watching football in Salt Lake and the Lovely Sharon is playing golf in Palm Desert.  So here is my second blog post of the day.  First, I need to confess that I had pizza for lunch.  Don't tell the Lovely Sharon about the pizza.  It is a banned food for me.  She does not read this blog often so I think I can sneak today's pizza by her.  So its our secret.  I was sitting here with pizza sauce all over my face and I was thinking about either-or choices.  Listed below are two choices of various items.  I have listed my choice, although some of the choices were very difficult to make inasmuch as I like both choices.  If you want to add a few either-or's please leave a comment or if you want to make a selction on the one or more of the items listed below, please do so:
