I will first give charity to the extent of 10%. Then I will buy a gift to my granddaughter. I will buy something to eat for my family. Rest of the money(whatever is it) will be kept by me for future expnses. Giving is my pleasure.

With 200.00 to spend for the day off, I would go to the JeJu spa and get a body scrub, a facial, a message and foot reflexology equaling 150.00.  I would go to a vegetarian restaurant and spend 30.00 and then, I would find four homeless people and give each of them 5.00 each--sharing my blessings with them.  What a wonderful day off and an awesome blessing.

I would do the same. I always leave the waitress a very good tip because they only make $2.13 and hour. They need the tip money. Bless you, Chris00721.

I would get my Communications Director for my company, Aladay Mobile Media and take her to lunch and go on a journey to promote our new weekly podcast series where we ask the burning question, What's Going on in Your Corner of the World?

That would be an awesome way to start our new project...we plan to do things via a telecommute basis but we also plan to take the production on the road at some point....We came upon this decision because social media has afforded us opportunities to communicate with people around the world and we are finding that even though they may speak a different language, eat different foods, they are people also. They also have the same concerns as we do in the USA. GMO Technology encroaching into the food supply, governments becoming to overbearing, the right to bear arms and free speech being impinged. So our thought is this...how can we show people It really is a Small World and we all have to share it...What makes this project so exciting is the fact I'm a 60-something and she is a 20-something...

That said here is to hoping we capture a massive audience and become successful...

BTW...GREAT question

I would definitely get away for a massage and facial.  I haven't had either in a couple of years and it would feel so nice.

As a retiree I enjoy my free time to do some gardening, but with the $200 I would buy some plants to beautify my shared cul de sac in our neighborhood.

I would find an Air BNB or similar, take my kids, their dogs and my 2 month old granddaughter and cook, play board games and relax. We would need a pool, we all swim and wide open space to run with the dogs. We are all vaccinated but we’ve had little time to be together and my son starts residency in another state soon so we all need uninterrupted time together.

If I had a day off I would wake up early, do yoga and then drink coffee on my porch. I would then take a walk in a local park and volunteer at, or donate to, the local food bank. I would use the money to make a delicious, homemade meal and rent a movie, or watch one of my favorite shows. I would round out my beautifully, slow paced day with a lavender, epsom salt bubble bath before going to bed early!
