Today, the Daily Post’s Sparkling or Still asks:

What’s your idea of a perfect day off: one during which you can quietly relax, doing nothing, or one with one fun activity lined up after the other? Tell us how you’d spend your time.

Whenever the weekend comes, there’s only two things on my calendar—stay or go. Unlike anyone else here, I don’t go out and party every single week. But a day off where I DON’T HAVE TO do anything except have a movie or TV marathon then curl up into a good book before bedtime? Yup, that’s more up my speed.

The question, though, is will I change that if I was given another day off to spare? Perhaps, but a bigger part of me asks me to stay.

The truth is, I would have gone out and do not just one, but several fun activities if it means spending it with the people I love; family? friends? Yes, please! But alone? I think I’d rather sit this one out; put a good (or bad) romcom, have some nachos I made myself using Cool Ranch Doritos, Grind Pork, Cheez Whiz and a bit of Salsa dip, and probably one (or two) of those blueberry Vodka Cruiser. (*If I’m feeling loose enough then maybe, MAYBE, I could go out and have some fun alone)

However, if I could have one day off where I could do whatever I want, go wherever I go and not think of the expenses and everything else, I’d probably take my siblings to the Universal Studios. When we get there, they can ride whatever they want, as long as they leave me inside the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. **Then maybe later we all could have butterbeer and have a feast à la Start of Term Feast in Hogwarts.

Now, if I couldn’t take them, and I’d have to go alone, I’d probably just go either on the beach to catch up on my reading (MAYBE join the party later if the book will allow me to go) or go to the Shakespeare and Company and spend my day reading and browsing through the books.

Really, that’s all I wanted. After that, I could probably die the next day.
