Last week y’all were asked to entertain the notion of either giving up your sight for a day or giving up your phone for a month. It was a close race between the two, with those willing to not see for a day edging out those willing to not have use of their phones. Many of you noted that the mere suggestion of being unable to have your phone would bring about heart palpitations or, in one particularly severe case, probable death. With that in mind, I can certainly see why giving up sight for a day was the preferred option.
Those who chose to go the phone-less route noted that it might feel kind of liberating to disconnect for a bit, though one clever reader pointed out that the internet was still available via a laptop so true disconnection wouldn’t be a hardship for her.
As for me, I decided to go with not having a cell phone for a month. The idea of not having my sight truly freaks me out. I know it would only be for a day. Sure, I could nap all day if I really wanted to instead of facing my fears. But in the end, giving up my phone, as challenging as it would be to do all the things I do with it, felt much less scary than being without sight.
And now, on to this week’s question…
Would you rather
have an extra hour every day
– OR –
have $40 given to you free and clear every day?
Which it will it be, clever readers? Will opt for the bonus hour every day? If so, what would you use it for? Or will you choose the free money? What would you use the money for? Sit, sip, and share. I always love to hear from you.
