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?

I'm a little less than 10 miles from work and between 2-8 for weekly stuff and I put about 200 miles on my car this week, on things that had nothing to do with work and/or errands.  It was all fun stuff, lots going on this past  week.

Yes, three options of men but the sentence doesn't say for what one is wiling to do in exchange for money.

Again, if you think being worldly means that one is supposed to know what that sentence meant and exchanging sex for money on a normal daily basis, I'll pass.  Thanks though, you go ahead and be "worldly".

....and some people are a bit loose and in between.  shrug.  If you wish to make judgements based on how you think someone should answer fluff (clearly, I need a copy of the rules that you, hardy and jams are using) than go right ahead, lol.

<<You drive to drop off your children>>

Incorrect.

My bad, you MEET your ex half way. Still miles on your car, correct.

<< and your family is not right around the corner, correct?>>

Correct - if you consider 90 and 50 miles as not around the corner.

Nope, I don't consider that "around the corner" and yes that puts miles on your car.

<< I assume that puts a lot of miles on your car too, correct?>>

incorrect

How so?

My GPS is named Susan, in honor of one of Joel's former school bus drivers, who was also a naggy-a$$ beyotch.

The question was which one of the above would you have sex with for a million dollars, and almost everyone indicated that they would have sex with one of them for a million dollars. Are we supposed to be answering fluff questions with lies? Like I said if someone handed me 10K I'd give skins to charity and put the rest toward a car is not something I'd actually do? What is the point of fluff then? Who can come up with the most entertaining fantasy?

I've asked for a copy of the rules, I will share when I receive my copy.

Well, I was following the logic of the conversation and my point which was that how close you live to things isn't always the factor in the mileage on your car.     So, when you asked about dropping off the kids, I took that in context and thought you meant for school and other daily things.      If you meant for exchanges with the ex, then yes, I drop them off.  Although that actually proves *MY* point that one can still live close to the daily things and incur lots of miles on one's car.

And you are incorrect about my family being "not around the corner" as a factor in my high mileage.   We don't drive to see them particularly often, so it's not much of a factor.

 

As an aside, have I mentioned how glad I am that I don't have to drive to Albuquerque anymore? (unless, of course, I just chose to for vacation or something ... NOT GONNA HAPPEN! lol)

Yes, three options of men but the sentence doesn't say for what one is wiling to do in exchange for money.

I guess Thardy thought everyone was familiar with this type of question. Especially since everyone always claims how "worldly" they are and up to speed with things. Guess not.

Again, if you think being worldly means that one is supposed to know what that sentence meant and exchanging sex for money on a normal daily basis, I'll pass.  Thanks though, you go ahead and be "worldly".

Again, it was a FLUFF question and it is not something new. Have heard this type of ?? for many, many years. Shrug.

....and some people are a bit loose and in between.  shrug.  If you wish to make judgements based on how you think someone should answer fluff (clearly, I need a copy of the rules that you, hardy and jams are using) than go right ahead, lol.

A bit loose? lol. What does that mean?
