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?

Ah, see we have lots of trips each year and many of them involve driving.  Even everyday (or rather a couple times a week), we tend to leave our immediate (up to 10 miles) area, we live in a large diverse population and we explore a lot, as that's what we like to do.  :)

Exactly, we live pretty close to everything and we still drive a lot so for "us", it's not based on living close to things that we do on a basic daily basis, like: work, errands, school and such.  Our miles are based more on our social/activity life than our everyday family life.  I'm sure it can vary widely for everyone and there are many people who don't even own a car who travel more than I do, roll comes to mind.

If that's how you and hardy judge being wordly, money in exchange for sex...I don't know what to say that I haven't already said before on that topic.  I'm okay with you judging me not wordly based on sex for money, really.

I have heard of that type of question, however that particular question was simply money for....and no specifics, so I asked specifics and then answered.  If you don't like the way I answered the question than either supply whatever rules you are using or move on past my answer if you don't like it.

A bit loose is the opposite of too tight, are you not familiar with opposites?

Oh, sweet mother of irony. Are you not the same SpringFever known to relentlessly pummel posters with dozens of posts about their beef stew recipes?

I can agree that FMK is a wordly game--for 13 year olds. I've never heard of the version where cash is exchanged.

Anyplace more than an hour or hour and a half to get to is pretty much an overnight stay for us.  Adirondaks are so pretty and we could hit the tip of that easy in a day, But any further would be a weekend which we actually are considering.

In all fairness we played it in our early 20's, along with quarters, Indian, I never and so forth.  I don't think I have ever heard it played in adult conversation at a party since then.  I guess I'm not "worldly", oh well.  :)
