1. How much exercise have you gotten this week so far?

2. Do you get your father and/or the father of your child/ren something for Father's Day?

3. If you were given $10,000 today, what would you do with it?

OP says given 10K. I was given unexpectedly given 10k. It was not a bonus based on metrics that I could monitor and work toward. It was a management judgment award, that I have never received in the past so I guess I was less than all that my previous 13 years with the company )-: LOL..... I have to pay taxes on it, but afaik, you also have to pay taxes on the lotto. I got a 10K check, it was welcome and unexpected, it's going towards my daughter's tuition. I answered the fluff with a concrete example. I'm sure sorry I broke the iV triumvirates fluff etiquette.

How much exercise have you gotten this week so far? Eh a few 30 minute stints on the treadmill at the gym and af ew outdoor walks.  I'm not so much about the excercise... It falls on a "i'll get to it when I get to it' Priority in my life... I mean why exercise when I can be on my deck drinking wine ? ;-)

2. Do you get your father and/or the father of your child/ren something for Father's Day? nope

3. If you were given $10,000 today, what would you do with it? probably pay off some lingering debt.  so glamorous right? LOL

I know this wasn't a question but my Jeep is 9 years old and has 135,000 on it.. .but I drive 32 miles RT each day plus I drive the child all over kingdom come and we are big believers in the glory of the road trip... I want to hang onto the Jeep for two more years until the girl is driving and then she can inherit and i can get a new Jeep!

No lie, I found a 50 dollar bill in my front yard a few weeks ago. I bought a tank of gas with it.

More snark.  Sorry if your feelings were hurt but you didn't answer the question which was a gift of $10,000.  As you know, yours is much, much less than $10,000, so your response was perplexing.  You've now explained why you threw it in, and I tried to give you the snaps you were seeking.  Thanks and enjoy applying unexpected fun money to necessary expenses.  Perhaps you meant to discuss how you spend your annual intra-family gifts which are actually $10K+.

Other than a lot of walking, none.  

2. Do you get your father and/or the father of your child/ren something for Father's Day?

Neither of us has a father anymore.  

3. If you were given $10,000 today, what would you do with it?

Pay bills.

Amen, love the road trip!  I'm excited, my first one for the summer starts tomorrow.  I love the first road trip of the summer.  Not a glamour destination but quality time with one of the kids, one on one.  I miss the car rides with my kids and I will have over 700 miles to catch up with one of them!

Is there a link to the rules that you are applying to fluff answers, because I don't have a copy and since I didn't see a thing wrong with her answer, I clearly need a copy.

We are leaving for a road trip tomorrow, too. Our first one sans kids in 21+ years. Should be interesting.
