I find this funny because I, too, am guilty of mixing my priorities.
What would you do with an extra fifteen minutes in your day? Frankly, I would probably roll it into some of the other things I’m already doing: who doesn’t need five more minutes to shower, five more minutes of sleep, and five more minutes at the car mechanic where there’s nothing to do but read your book? But in the spirit of the question, which comes from my mining of Real Simple back issues, here’s what I would do with fifteen extra minutes outside of the normal flow of my life. Fifteen extra minutes just for me.
I would read comic books. This is the same answer I give to the question, “What would you do with an extra $20 a month?” I used to collect comics, but mostly to read them, not to save them for some future bonanza. I miss reading them. I miss the exposure to all that creativity. But I have neither the time, nor the money right now to indulge.
But I know when my boys start reading comics, and they will, I will enjoy reading them, too.
