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?
