You Gonna Show Me Later

Welcome to Choose and Defend Wednesday.  Time once again to make a choice and make a stand!  This week, I thought I'd ask how you could best get by.  There is the reality of what we all need...money.  But the alternate reality is that we all want to be able to do something that makes us happy.  Today, which would you Choose?

A Job Digging Holes with a Shovel for $100,000 Per Year
OR
A Job Playing Your Favorite Sport for $30,000 Per Year
There you go!  Let's hear the what and the why, please.  Choose and Defend.  Thank you :-)

Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy, that's quite a decision!

Um.....well I'm not a huge fan of sports, but I do like playing tennis or volleyball.

My decision is to play tennis for 30k a year.

I have to agree with Tara and play tennis. I'd be able to survive on that much in relative comfort, so I could do what I enjoy and live a happy life! I do not need to have wealth or a lot of extras.

Because I have done the crappy job for good money gig, I would rather play a sport for $30K. That's my final answer.

That's a hard one, since I've been so broke lately and I actually have dug holes for a living (landscaping work) and didn't mind it at all.

In two years when my girls are gone and I don't need as much money, I'd love to run and ride my bike for a living. Right now, though? I think I'd dig holes and take the money.

For me, it almost entirely depends on location. I can certainly imagine digging holes 9-5 and spending $30K a year on a golfing habit, but only if was on the CA coast or somewhere nicer... So, assuming it's in the best place ever, I'd be a digger. Besides, the chicks would dig my muscular mussels. ;)

Tara: I am so bad a tennis, they might pay me NOT to play! One for 30K.

Ananda: There is a lot to be said for doing something you enjoy. Two for 30K.

AlienCG: It is nice to have had that comparison. What sport would you play? Three for 30K.

Churlita: That right there was an awesome defense! Makes perfect sense. One for 100K.

KenV: haha! I like that...and it is all about location, location, location :-) Two for 100K.

Everyone: This thing tipped into a close race 3-2. But more votes are needed! Speak!

I don't really like any sport so unless it could be hiking or skiing or something like that, which I could do in a non-competitive way, I don't know what I'd choose (because I definitely don't have the upper body strength for digging).

Secret: Sure, it could be hiking or skiing...why not? So let's make you Four for 30K. :-)

4-2!
