It's the first day of the meteorological summer! So I've decided to celebrate with a random poll. Tell us: if you had an extra $50 this summer, what would you spend it on? I've listed a few options with my very unscientific poll here and I've decided to be very rigid. You can only pick one of these, so if they don't appeal to you, pick the closest. No wimpy "none of the above" options in my make-believe land of happy $50 for all. No sir.
Or you can just, you know, write it in the comments. But take the poll first, and then tell me how you'd rather spend an extra $50 if someone approached you with it right now.
My extra $50...
Consequently, I did get an extra $50 this summer as a gift, and I spent it on ... gas. In May (ok, still technically spring) I traveled to Wisconsin with my mom to visit my aunt and donated $20 towards the trip. The rest was spent at Mars' Cheese Castle off the 94 expressway outside of Kenosha (aka the best place on earth), where I loaded up on cheese curds, summer sausage and New Glarus Beer - a virtual cornucopia of Midwestern delight - before heading to my aunt's to chill by her firepit and watch my little cousins catch bullfrogs.
If that's not $50 well-spent, I don't know what is.
And here is the rest of it.
