Here’s a post that screams for participation, and I’d like to see the comments section overflowing with your replies. Feel free to answer more than once. This is a fun post meant to generate Deep Thoughts and Positive Moods.
I love replying to your comments, and I need a distraction, so let’s keep me busy. You have my word that I won’t pass off the task to my interns.
So here’s my philosophical softball that I’m asking you all to smack out of the park:
What would you do if I gave you $10?
Be greedy. Be generous. Be frugal. Pay it forward. Have fun. If you’re going to do something illegal with it, don’t boast about it on here (this is a family friendly blog!).
It’s $10 for you to do with as you please.
No, Modern Philosophers, I will not actually be giving any of you $10. This is not a contest where the best answer wins $10. No money will actually switch hands.
To kick off things, I’ll tell you what I’d do with a free $10.
It’s in the 90s today, extremely humid, I’m bored out of my mind on this confusing vacation, and The House on the Hill doesn’t have air conditioning.
Unless I could find an AC unit for $10, I would spend the money by going to a matinee at the local movie theater. If there’s any money left over from the cost of a ticket, I’d buy some popcorn or a soda.
Since it’s the Summer Movie Season, and I haven’t been to the cinema since I saw The Force Awakens, I’d try to stretch that $10 by sneaking into as many movies as possible. And take advantage of the free refills on my popcorn, of course, as I chill in the air conditioning.
If, for some odd reason, the movie theater was closed, I’d use my $10 to buy all the fixings for a huge hot fudge sundae. Ice cream would be the perfect medicine to battle this draining summer heat wave. I’d make sure there was some whipped cream and Reese’s Pieces to go with the ice cream and hot fudge.
How great does that sound?
My third choice, since I’m trying to encourage multiple answers from all participants, would be to buy a really good paperback book, and then get lost in its pages down in the basement bunker. It’s much cooler down there, and I’d bring down a comfy chair and a bottle of Snapple, and be in no rush to return to the first floor.
See how easy that was? Now it’s time for you to play along. I want this to be the most commented upon post this blog has had all year. Think you can make that happen?
Please share this post all over social media so your friends can play along, too!
Thanks. Enjoy your $10!
I won’t give you $10, but I’d appreciate it if you followed me on Pinterest!
