I saw this question on MSN’s front page this evening…and almost lost the tangerines I had sitting in my stomach from dinner. The following question was “How would a $132 fill up change your life?”
Well, to say the least, I think I’d barf a little every day, so I might be another 2 sizes smaller. Furthermore, I have a slew of friends who work domestically and overseas as missionaries. Therefore, their entire income is based on the philanthropy of others. I’m curious how the world would react to this gaseous insanity in regard to their giving. In 2006, it was all the rage to give to your heart’s content [props to bradgelina], but with the rise in the cost of living [i.e., gas, food, energy], can we keep the generosity flowing and continue supporting these local and global change agents? My heart says yes; unfortunately, my online bank statement might say otherwise. Are missionaries then on the wrong side of the oreo cookie?
So, I’m glad I don’t have to think of a post-post question since MSNBC did it for me…
“At $10/gal…How would a $132 fill up change your life?”
