Hunches in Bunches Choices Quotes

How we cite our quotes: (Stanza.Line)

Quote #1

Do you want to kick a football?
Or sit there on your behind?
Do you want to go out skating?
Fly a kite? Or climb a tree? (4.1-4)

So. Many. Choices. We truly feel for this kid. At least it looks like he has a healthy love of different hobbies. That's always a good thing.

Quote #2

By now my mind was so mixed up
I really didn't know
if I wanted to go to the barber shop
or to Boise, Idaho. (12.1-4)

The choices begin to grow pretty extreme. Just imagine what it must take for you to decide to up and go to all the way to Boise (assuming, of course, you don't live in Idaho).

Quote #3

Then a Spookish Hunch suggested
I go four ways all at once! (15.1-2)

The Spookish Hunch's choice actually contradicts itself. Since nobody can go four ways all at once, it just shows how muddled the boy's head must be for such an activity to surface as an possibility.
