This post is the second in the series, featured on Blog Explosion.
Today’s Topic: “If your life were like Bill Murray’s in Groundhog Day, which day would you want to re-live forever, and why?”
So, I’m not that old. In fact, I think my best times are ahead of me. Hopefully, I haven’t had my best day yet. PLUS, in the movie, Murray is actually living the worst day ever, and he just messes with it until he gets it right. Hypothetically speaking, if that were to actually happen to me, and I get stuck with my worst day, yes, I know exactly what would happen. But that’s not the question. So you don’t get to hear about that.
What I will tell you about is the ridiculous things that I would spend one day each doing, if I were stuck in any average day of my life, a day that repeated itself, in which I wasn’t responsible for any action that I took.
- Eat candy all day until I puked.
- Major shopping spree, max out my credit cards.
- Dye my hair pink.
- Spend the day in a motorized scooter.
- Make prank calls.
- Abandon empty packages in the airport.
- Drop water balloons off the roof.
- 24 hour drinking party. For one.
- Watch the sunset.
- Fly a plane. With or without a license.
- Pencil roll down a hill.
- All you can eat pasta.
- Speed. Everywhere.
- Shout in the library.
- Give someone all my money.
- Fly to Vegas, spend all my money.
- Pay to be an extra on Law and Order (would have to film that day).
- Major bonfire.
- Audition for something and perform terribly.
- Laugh uncontrollably at anything anyone says.
- Answer people only in song lyrics.
- Do whatever it takes to get thrown in jail.
- Beg for change. In an evening gown.
I’m sure that there are more adventuresome things that I could try, but the fact is I get to do whatever I want in real life, so this is more like a list of things I’d never do unless I was really, really bored.

Like MY post? It’s part of a contest I need votes to win…
Update: You voted, I won! Thanks, all!!
Ha, a very unique spin on the idea. I like some of your ideas. I would give you change if I saw you on the corner in your evening gown.
I almost wrote something very similar to this describing all the things I might do if there were no consequences to my actions. I really enjoy that part of the movie where he kills himself in more and more interesting ways, especially the scene where he kidnaps Puxatony Phil. It’s quite humorous, albeit in a morbid kind of way.
I’m with Andy. 😉
Will you just go dye your hair pink for the day and get it over with….
I love this list. You’ve got an excellent spin on this and are very positive.
Haha, I enjoyed reading this! And it was definitely a refreshing spin on the topic =) **HUGS!!**
Andy – How much? 😉
Zybron – I def. didn’t want to relive any normal day, in my world, once is enough!
Bev- Thanks for stopping by!
Momm – Talking about it too much, am I?
Jayne and Chris – Thanks!

Fantastic post, most impressive one I’ve read yet.
I love that you would give away all your money, because that totally makes sense; awesome 🙂

So I will meet you in Vegas on a corner where you will be on a motorized scooter in an evening gown with pink hair by a “bonfire” (trash can aflame). Give me all your money, then we shall audition for a show. When we get kicked off the stage, we can laugh hysterically.
Next we can go eat pasta, watch the sunset, then pencil roll down a hill where an officer arrests us and we are thrown in jail. Then I shall pay bail with the money you gave me and we will fly home in a stolen plane and drop water ballons out the window while making prank calls on cell phones.
Sounds like the perfect day Jean! Hahaha, I love it!!!
