18 Jan What City Should You Live In?
We’ve all received dozens of stupid quizzes to take online that are supposed to reveal something about us that we didn’t already know. Silly, but amusing at times. Mr. Weekend In Paris was out jogging before dinner so I jumped on Facebook and took the quiz, “What City Should You Live In?” Sucker!
The très non-scientific survey asks you all kinds of irrelevant questions like what is your favorite
Beyonce song (I had to Google them to see if I knew any, and it turns out I do), or what do you look for in a mate. I’ve been married for 23 years to the same man and it’s too late to be asking me these things. In case anyone is curious to know the answer to that one, I answered, “A Smarty” and, I got one by the way. What kind of exercise do I like? Slam dunk – none! I do like to play tennis, but that’s more about beating the crap out of the ball and winning a game, than about wanting exercise.
Of course the survey answers have to be correct; everything on the internet is true. Really, I read on the internet that everything on the internet is true. Touché:
You are an artist, a philosopher, a day-dreamer. Your friends have told you before you seem to have been born in the wrong era, and they’re right. You want to live a life of passion and vigor, filled with good wine, great coffee, and world-class food. Bon voyage, you belong in Paris!
Bon voyage indeed! I leave one week from today and I will be in Paris doing all kinds of fabulous things. What kinds of things? Gee, I thought you would never ask! My sisters and I will be wine tasting all over town, following in the footsteps of Hemingway, shopping in the local outdoor markets, taking a French cooking class, dining at a three-Michelin-star restaurant, having cocktails in a private swanky apartment, cheese tasting on Île Saint-Louis, museum hopping, people watching at Café Flore, chocolate eclair sampling everywhere, and coming home each night to a lovely apartment and crashing each night to do it all over again the next day.
Although incorrect about me being an artist, a philosopher and a day-dreamer, I guess the survey was right overall about where I should be living…what’s your city? To find out, take the quiz below. Don’t blame me if it doesn’t turn out you should be living in Paris, clearly you need some more coaching. Keep reading The Weekend In Paris and maybe you can take the quiz again and get it “right” next time.
