what if I gave you 1 million dollars for one night with your wife?

so I'm sitting there watching the movie Indecent Proposal, which I stinkin LOVE, and I started pondering the deeper issues. This was brought on probably by reading a blog post about Gilligan's Island being some kind of existential allegory for hell and the 7 deadly sins. yeah. it worked. go check out El Blog de Steve and see for yourself. thanks Steve.JK.
 I started to wonder about would I really do it. take the million bucks. in the movie it's a no brainer. the guy is rich, charming, awesome. but is that enough? are you selling your soul to the proverbial devil? (thanks again Steve) do you ever recover from it? Or is it really a problem?
as writers we get the wonderful opportunity to ponder these questions and their countless outcomes. I like that. no I love it because we can do the things that we wouldn't normally do through our characters. we get to take the money or not. and we get to have a good time or not.

  1. You are welcome! I am glad you enjoyed the post and my writing makes you think a little about the big questions in Life :) For those who want to read it, here is the link:

    I doubt I would let my wife do it. After watching that movie, it would cause more problems than solve. I doubt I would sleep with a girl for a million dollars either. Maybe I am old-fashioned...
