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 not that far away from my job either, but what puts the miles on my car is vacation, weekend trips and activities.

<<Shh.  You're supposed to be impressed, lol!  Really, with the responses the other day to my Fluff question, I wonder how some women conduct themselves in real life.  Egad.

Tongue Out  lol>>

You know, I am too but probably not in the same way.

Actually the 3 of you are turning it into something else, everyone just answered the question in the best way that they could without the lol's and mocking of answers.

We do because a lot of times it's not practical to fly out every weekend, even with gas prices it's cheaper to drive and of course sometimes given the location of the airport, faster to drive.

I played the last time it hit over 400 million, just for fun.  :)

Sigh....lotto, windfalls, ANYTHING that you would get WITHOUT earning it from a job.

84 year old woman won that lotto. She got (after all taxes) $370.9 million.

  I answered the fluff question with honesty and actual experience. I got an unexpected windfall of 10K, which is a non-guaranteed part of my compensation package. Who knows, maybe every other year I didn't receive it, I left this money on the table because I didn't do my job well enough. </p>

Again, clapping for you.  {{}}.  We truly get it.  Anyway, the fluff question was an actual $10,000 and it was a gift.  Your half-year bonus was not a gift and is much less than $10,000 so some of us were perplexed why bring it into the discussion in the first place.
