Hi and welcome to Friday Fun Facts! Come play along and learn something new about me, and I’ll learn something new about you.
Each Friday I will post a question (something fun, maybe a bit quirky, it’s Friday after all) and follow it with my answer. You can join the fun and post your own answer by clicking the comment button below!
…..Drum roll, please….Today’s Friday Fun Fact question is…
If you could have the best day ever…do anything you wanted today…travel anywhere, buy anything that is yours for today only, see anyone…dead or alive, ANYTHING…what would you do and why? I do have a stipulation…this has to be something totally centered on you…greedy or not! You can’t give it away, trade or sell it. You have to be selfish 🙂 And it’s only for today…come tomorrow your life is the same as before you made your choice.
WOW…this leaves a lot of choices, too many options. And by now you might know how much I suck at making decisions…lol. Usually 🙂
Do I want to travel to a destination that I’ve always wanted to visit, and plan to someday, but who knows if I’ll ever really be able to? Or should I buy something extravagant, something I know I’d never be able to afford (except now that I have this awesome chance I should go for it and enjoy it for today….a car that costs gazillions, a gorgeous home on a private island with maids and butlers and cabana boys—men *wink*, diamonds?), or should I visit someone that I haven’t seen in forever, or someone that is no longer on this earth. Or pick a profession and be that person for a day…doctor, lawyer, lottery winner, famous author (((evil laugh))).
You know what? I really didn’t have to think about this too much…I was just hoping by stalling that I’d give you some ideas and choices if you were stumbling with a decision.
If I could do anything today, anything at all…I’d spend one more day with my parents and siblings. The whole day, right through until well after dinner. My parents both passed away about five years ago, within a few months of each other and I admit that I never really considered life without them before it was too late. I took them for granted, figured they’d always be there. Just because I was used to having them there whenever I picked up the phone or dropped in.
Not trying to be a downer here, just stating facts. I’d love to spend the day with them and my brother and sister. We’d get crazy and laugh until we cried, our sides aching, snorting when we tried to suck in a breath of air. We’d share funny stories that nobody else could or would understand because they weren’t there. All of us had a history and a bond that only we fully understood and treasured and I’d love to relive that one more time.
That would be the best day ever.
How about you? What would it take to give you the best day ever?
