Golden number 10000

You wake up tomorrow morning to find all your plans have been cancelled for the next seven days and $10,000 on your dresser. Tell us about your week.

Day 1: Freak out.  Tell wife.  Freak out together.  Wonder who’s behind this.  Call parents.  Call all friends.  Get no answers.  Do nothing.  Get little sleep.

Day 2: Wonder if this is some sort of test or we are in the Matrix and some glitch has caused my job to be cancelled for 1 week and $10K appears from nowhere.  Decide to wait 1 more day before touching the money.

Day 3: Nothing changes.  Still no work and still have $10,000.  We say “Screw it.”  Decide not to put in bank.  Too many questions.  Start freaking out again with temporary financial freedom.  Set aside $1000.  First purchase: Steak Dinner at fancy restaurant.

Day 4: Pack bags with 2 days of clothes and buy moderately priced hotel room for brief vacation.  Spend day eating like kings and queens.  Buy expensive bottle of Champagne. Drink heartily.

Day 5: Repeat Day 4.

Day 6: Get hour long massage before leaving hotel.  Head to nearby casino.  Bet $100 on one hand of Blackjack.  Win. Tip dealer full $100 profit.  Lose. Leave with no regrets. Go home.

Day 7: Take $1000 set aside on Day 1 and put in envelope.  Drive to Animal Welfare League.  Hand to staff and walk away without explanation.

And that’s how I’d spend my 7 Days!  What about you?

  4. I think a lot of my time would be spent freaking out, too 🙂

      I think that’s a normal reaction for most everybody! One has to wonder who this benevolent benefactor is and what they really want to see in our reactions. Can he or she come find me for real? Ha!
