Question of the Week

With all that Tupac’n over the last couple weekends that raises the question…

You can pick one person to bring back from the dead, who do you pick? And why?

Last week’s question of a soul’s worth got a lot of great answers. What would you trade your soul for?

  • World peace!  (and about 1 billion dollars) –  Brie S.
  • French Fries… isn’t that what Bart sold his soul to Milhouse for? – Justin E.  
  • All the equity in my soul is overextended already, shit… – Christina R.
  • To save wildlife & wilderness/marine ecosystems. – Ericka W.
  • TRUE LOVE! – Kristine M. 
  • That I knew then what I know now… – Sarah C. 

Then there were the people that wanted more souls:

  • 10 more souls. Wait that’s wishes. –  Joanie Coyote ‎ 
  • ‎3 really primo souls. –  Jim D. 
And of course the ones that wouldn’t trade their souls for anything…
  • Not a damn thing – Rhonda H.
  • Nothing could ever even come close!! – Jackie B.
  • Nothing – I am going to be a good grandma so I can join my grandson when my time on earth is done. –  Sandy H. 
But I thought the best answer went to Dennis W. with “‎2 *extra* hours everyday, that I can have uninterupted to do with as I pleased. That way I would have 2 hours I could do my studies, play a game, do garden work, or just read if I wanted to in my personal 26 hour day.”

SIDE NOTE: When I found out about J-na Couture I was drawn to the brand because of my love of knits. They have so many wonderful colors and textures in the designs. The more I read and corresponded with this Chicago-based label the more I really came to admire and respect the personality behind the clothes. Couturier J-na has a personal story that is inspiring to say the least.

Spotted this over at 2 Dope Boyz. Made for instantaneous laughter, and a little head scratching too.

Enjoy Friday my friends. It only comes once a week!
