What’s it Worth To You? - Annie McFarland
You know those moments when you let your mind wander and it ends up in the weirdest places? Well, this whole blog will be about the random thoughts that scrolled through my mind this morning.
Welcome to the inside of my brain. I really want to explain how we got here before we end up at my final thought.
I was in the shower this morning and I noticed that my plant that is in the shower window wasn’t looking so good, which rolled into how cold it was outside and I should check on my outdoor plants, which made me think of the last time I bought plants at Lowes and I spent way too much money which made me think of money in general and what I would be willing to do for money.
I know for sure that a ton of us have the exact same wandering mind, where we begin on one topic and end up so far away but once you break down the pieces, it all actually makes sense. I figured it would be a fun blog to find out how far all of you are willing to go for some cold, hard cash! I wish we could actually put some of these to the real test but we will have to make do with the idea of each.
So. . . What would you be willing to do for money? And how much money are we talking? Let’s start with the age-old question brought to us by Robert Redford. . . from Indecent Proposal. . . would you sleep with stranger for 1mil but it means cheating on your hubs/SO? I don’t share well. . .when I am with someone. . . that’s it for me. . I am with them. I would have to pass, even on a cool MILLION dollars! Eek. . that hurts to say and I am so glad we are just talking fake money!
Next up, would you eat a can full of worms for $100,000? Disgusting, yes, but I’m pretty certain I have done worse, while drunk for no money! I would not love it, I would probably throw up after doing it and I would definitely have nightmares for the rest of my life but I would be sleeping easier on my brand new Egyptian cotton sheets that I pick up as a little treat for myself with all that extra cash!
Let’s move on to an easier one, would you sing the national anthem in a full stadium for $5,000? I say this is an easier challenge because I would do this in a heartbeat. . .probably for free. . .even though I am a terrible singer! I feel that there would have to be an announcement prior to the singing giving the audience an opportunity to leave or put in some earplugs. Finally, if your significant others mother approached you with $500,000 to walk away from your SO, would you pack your bags? I mean, if all scenario’s aligned, you could be walking away with $1.5 mil because you have the indecent proposal followed by leaving him because of mom? This game could really be a cash cow for you if you don’t really dig your SO! I guess for me, the only SO I really have is DC and we have only known each other for a few weeks. If his mom approached me today, it might have to be a solid yes to walk away. I mean. . . right? We just met! Perhaps, I would be offended by her trying to shove me out of his life as I drive to the bank to deposit my check but I would be half a mil richer so I think that and some cute new shoes might soften the blow.
But, if DC and I get to the “l word” stage, that point where he has my heart and I am fully into a relationship with him, then I would have to say no to mom’s cash advance. So. . .if DC’s mom is reading this and if you have had any temptation to bump me from his life, you better hurry up with the offer!
Now it’s your turn. . . just how far are you willing to go?
*DC’s mom. . . I’m totally kidding. . . unless you really want to. . . then you should give me a call!
Well, my husband said I would have to take one for the team with a random dude if it involved 1mil…. I told him how kind but the dude was interested in him!?! 😲🤔💋💋💋🤣🤣🤣
There is absolutely no amount of money to cheat on my love or that his mom could give me to leave; the worms would most def need seasoning and LOTS of beer, but it’s do-able! 😂
I sell plasma for money. It’s not thousands of dollars. But it helps me buy my piper Lou and booze. 🤣🤣. It helps saves lives for other people. I also just volunteered to get deployed. This takes place next week. I’m getting pulled out of my office and relocated to a hospital in the Atlanta area. I’ll be doubling my paycheck. As I read this I’m noticing that I’m a very boring person. 🤣🤣🤣.
I would have to say no to all for of those options. I wouldn’t cheat on anyone because I have been cheated on before. My SO’s mom is dead. I don’t sing in public. And I would never eat worms.
It’s probably awful that my significant other has told me to go ahead and screw whoever for big bucks if the opportunity ever arises. Except- I wouldn’t. Probably one of the reasons our relationship hasn’t been on steady ground- we have very different feelings on relationships. The disgusting food option- I would swallow it down too and yes- probably barf it all back up and be able to pay for a hypnotist to help me forget the incident. And if my MIL came to me with 1/2 a million right now, or anytime over the last year- I’d have run away like the fan of the week. I wouldn’t have even packed- just see ya! I’d even ditch social media for a while to help with the disappearance. I’d be gone! Instead I am doing therapy to help me get back on track and maybe eventually the other half and I will do couples therapy. For now, we are co-existing. Barely.
*My mother in law doesn’t like me, and has more money than I can imagine- so that last one is in the realm of possibilities~ JS peace out
