Welcome back, kind readers, to the Wednesday Would You Rather question. Last time, y’all were told to choose between having a fabulous living room or a gorgeous yard. Kasbah readers seem to be the outdoorsy type as an overwhelming majority of you preferred to have a yard designed to your heart’s desire, even those who reside in the often-rainy Northwest.
So which did I choose? You’d think that sitting in front of a cozy fire in my living room at this very moment would sway me to select a fab living room. You might also be tempted to think that the below freezing temps tonight or the gusty, rain/hail storm earlier today would push me to want a living room that’s warm and inviting.
Like many of you, I, too, would opt for the lush, beautiful yard for many of the reasons y’all noted. It would be big enough to have large, old oak trees and a pond. There would also be a hammock, a hot tub, a vegetable/herb garden, a blueberry orchard, fruit trees, and tons of flowers. And it would be located somewhere where the weather is warm more often than not.
I would also want a full-time gardner to help me keep up with all of the maintenance. And to do weed pulling. Obviously. In a yard as big as the one I’m imagining, it would become a weed-infested mess in one season if I didn’t have a gardener. With a British accent. Just sayin’.
And now, on to this week’s question…
Would you rather
have one year off at your current rate of pay
– OR –
work your current job for a year at triple your current rate of pay?
Which will you choose, clever readers? Will the lure of free time for a whole year while still earning money be the bigger draw for you? Or will you be enticed to make triple what you do now over the next year? Put on your thinkin’ caps, sit a spell, and then share your thoughts. I always love to hear from you.
