The quandary posed last week – having an extra hour every day or receiving $40 a day free and clear – was not an easy one for me. It didn’t help that whenever I read someone’s comment, I’d think, “Yes! That’s TOTALLY how I feel about THAT. Phew! Now I have my answer for next week,” only to be tempted by the next comment that popped up. I’d read that one and think, “Yes, that’s so true for ME, TOO! I’m gonna change my answer and go with THAT one. Phew! Glad I sorted that out.”
And then next answer came in and, well, you can probably see where I’m going with this.
But for those who commented, the choice seemed pretty easy. Nearly half of you chose to go with the extra hour, citing extra reading time or the endless number of things that one could do in these too-short lives of ours. Then there were those who chose to go with the $40 a day, noting the numerous ways it could be spent, ranging from feeding stray cats to flying lessons for a son to a mini shopping spree.
So where did I land after ping-ponging around on this question? After much deliberation, I decided the extra $40 a day would come in mighty handy, what with all the house remodeling I have going on at the moment. I could then afford that secret bookshelf/hidden door or the super cool rolling ladder for my three-story library (that is, after I add on the additional two stories to my house). I could make upgrades to the writing cave’s security measures as well seeing as a certain classy British actor has become quite sought after in the movie biz as of late and surely has access to some state of the art Writing Cave Locating Techniques. Needless to say, the money would not go to waste.
And now, on to this week’s question…
Would you rather put an end to
– OR –
hatred and oppression of people?
So which will you choose, inspiring readers? Will it be to end hunger in every corner of the world? Or will you choose to eradicate hatred and oppression of people everywhere it exists? Ponder it a bit, then sit, sip, and share your thoughts. I always love to hear from you.
