    (Though in fact when I sold a story recently for $217 dollars I used the money to buy groceries and shoes for the kid.)

    A gram of rhymes-with-schlocaine, just for old times’ sake (from when they cost that much). Haven’t done it in decades, but what the hell? Fun!
    My poor aging constitution probably couldn’t deal and I’d keel over dead, but with a smile. (On reflection, it’d more likely be a hideous rictus and arms wrapped around my failing heart.)
    Ok…books. 🙂

    Tune-up for my bicycle + new sneakers from Payless.

    Some silver wire or sheet silver to make things with. Or books. Or some exotic food items. Then I’d make a coolly weird dinner and invite some friends over to eat.

    Books and music. You can read the books many times over the years and there’s always one song on an album that sounds better over the years.

  12. adrastos says:

    Dinner at the Louisiana Bistro whose Chef and proprietor, Eric Mars, and I have an S & M relationship only without the leather, whips and chains.

  13. Brooklyn Girl says:

    Body creme from Jo Malone, and a pedicure.

  14. Henrietta says:

    I will contribute to the Wisconsin Democrats for the recall election.

  15. MichaelF says:

    Wine. Red. Bordeaux.
    Yeah, I thought maybe books, but I’ve got so many on my list that I can borrow up for free at the library, so…

  16. RAM says:

    Donuts, books, coffee; the staffs of life.

  17. If I can find $100 bill on the ground and it is allowed to spend it to myself, well I choose to buy for my first flip flops. Because I only have sneakers.

  18. delagar says:

    Ooo, good one, Henrietta. I’m changing my answer!

  19. Martin says:

    I give fifty bucks to hit the questioner until I can spend it on my wife and I. Then nice dinner!

  21. Greywolf says:

    Can I use mine to buy some time to read the stack of books waiting?

  22. Body creme from Jo Malone, and a pedicure.
    I was going to say books, but I have so many I haven’t read and there is such a thing as a library. So I think Brooklyn Girl is on the right track. A massage, maybe.

    I had to come back and relate a story. In the mid 70’s I actualy DID find a hundred dollar bill, inside Texas state capital building, on some steps. I figured (even then) that it had fallen out of some lobbyist pocket. I used it to buy a new waterbed. Yeah, 70’s indeed!

  24. PurpleGirl says:

    Yarn. And more yarn. Fancy light-weight wool. Or viscous and nubbly. And magazines with patterns.

  25. joejoejoe says:

    “Donuts, books, coffee; the staffs of life.”
    Wasn’t The Staffs of Life a spinoff where Tootie, Dee and Mrs. Garrett run an office?

    Books, music, quilting fabric.
