I live in the best city in the world, Los Angeles. If I had the day off and $200, I would grab my girl and take her to our favorite coffee house, then head to the mountains for some hiking. Then a light lunch. Afterwards I would drive to the beach for a swim with her. And in the evening, dinner and watch the sun set. There is something great about sharing

If I had a day off and $200 I would spend the day with my best friend. We'd spend the day shopping, catching up, and then have dinner and drinks at one of our favorite restaurants. A day like that is what we normally do when we can get together but if I won $200 right now after 2020 and Covid-19 I might opt for me and her going to a spa and getting totally pampered and then dinner and drinks at one of our favorite restaurants.  It's a tough decision because I rarely get to do anything for myself or pamper and just overall take care of me. The day would definitely be spent with my best friend regardless of which option we decide to take because it would just be nice to be away from home and the responsibility of being a caregiver and take care of me and my mental and physical health.

I would first get a full massage for my muscles that ache from MS.  Then I'd surge on some good watercolor supplies & maybe even a w/c class.

A day off and $200 would be enough to allow a day and night with my wife of 28 years at a hotel that has a pool, spa, and dining leaving the phone, computer, dishes and all else behind.

Beautiful idea, I would take a day for myself and go to the beach and enjoy the day. I would love to take a ride out and just enjoy myself. The panic has caused us to stay home and not enjoy ourselves. It would be wonderful if we all could do that. Just enjoy the beautiful days ahead.

I would take the day and have breakfast with my Dad. He has struggled since losing Mom last August. Then I would have some time outside in the sunshine (ideally on the beach!) and then maybe a message to loosen up these tense muscles.
