Welcome to this week’s Tuesday Topics! This week is eleven questions for you to respond to via comment or by posting on your blog/Facebook/Google+ or etc. These questions were appropriated from “Fond of Snape” and “Thoughts From Along the Broken Road“.
1. You have been awarded the time off from work and an all-expenses paid week anywhere in the United States. The catch is that it must be somewhere you have not been before. Where do you choose to visit?
2. Name three of your guilty pleasures.
3. The best kind of Girl Scout Cookie is:
4. What do you value most in other people?
5. Be honest. Do you sneak some raw cookie dough when you’re baking cookies?
6. Have you ever looked back at your life and realized that something you thought was a bad thing was actually a blessing in disguise?
7. What is the most beautiful place you’ve ever visited?
8. Are you more of a thinker or a feeler?
9. Name three things you are thankful for right now.
10. Have you ever participated in a three-legged race?

The following questions were posted a few years ago on “That’s My Answer“: If you saw someone drop at $20 bill from their pocket, and they didn’t notice they’d dropped it, would you alert them to it? What if it was $1? Or some change? When is it finders keepers and their loss is your gain?
If I saw them actually drop the $20 I would pick it up and hand it back to them. If it was only a $1 and I saw them actually drop it I would still hand it back to them. I am not so sure if I would pick up any change that fell…unless it was quarters, then I would give that to them.
It is only “finders keepers” if no one is around to claim the money that is found. For example: A few years, while shopping in a local store I used the bathroom and found a $20.00 on the floor. I was alone in the bathroom and I had seen no one come out on my way in so I kept the $20. Yes, I thought about turning it in but then I thought about how anyone could claim the money and that maybe, just maybe the person I turned it in to would keep it. Was that bad? Wrong? Maybe.
I spent that $20 in the store. I just added it to my budget money and purchased an item or two I would not have been able to get otherwise.
