Pay for the dental crown I am having done, starting on Friday. My first appointment will take 1 hour and 40 minutes. Ora pro nobis.

wundayatta's avatar

Put it in my savings account.

Aethelwine's avatar

I would pay off the balance for my son’s student exchange to Germany next summer.

chyna's avatar

@gailcalled I had 2 crowns done at the same time, it took 4 hours.
I would pay off my charge card.

Toss it in the bank, slowly whittle away at it, tell myself not to spend it, spend it regardless.

At the moment? Hookers and blow.

Normally? Credit card pay off.

Have a damn fine dinner with my wife, without my kids…

I’d stick it into an envelope, and mail it to the Nevada address I’ll IM you in a second.

This will ensure you fortune, luck, big cars, an enlarged penis, a rich blond that will marry you and <insert something you really want here> en masse!

Don’t hesitate, ‘cause this opportunity won’t last long!

Pay off my bills and throw the rest in the bank. Oh and give uncle sam his share since he will take it anyway.

SuperMouse's avatar

Tithe 10% off the top and use the rest for the summer school classes I still have no idea how I am going to pay for.

Bring my mom’s mortgage current.

knitfroggy's avatar

Pay my folks back some money I owe them, pay for my son’s Karate classes and my daughter’s art classes at the recreation comission. And I’d get myself a Nintendo DSi.

YARNLADY's avatar

Make an extra payment on my house.

dalepetrie's avatar

Being unemployed for the last 3 1/2 months, probably spend it on food.

SeventhSense's avatar

Buy pizza for the block.
Edit, change my mind.
Get some dental work done.

Likeradar's avatar

Split it evenly between savings, putting a dent in debt, a shopping spree, and giving my parents a few bucks because they’re more generous than they should be.

Facade's avatar

Give it to my babe to put in his savings account.

evelyns_pet_zebra's avatar

$2000? is hardly going to make a dent in my credit bill, so I think I’d use it make the down payment on a new vehicle that my wife could love, instead of the one she has now that she hates.

Couchsurf the West Coast til the wave breaks.

3or4monsters's avatar

Take a chunk out of my debt with it, sigh forlornly, then settle down for a bowl of top ramen.

ru2bz46's avatar

Bring my friend’s mortgage to current.

BBSDTfamily's avatar

covedude's avatar

SeventhSense's avatar

@3or4monsters
..and a fine bowl of Ramen it will be…maybe even dare I say some crusty bread to accompany…ok let’s not get carried away

3or4monsters's avatar

@SeventhSense I cracked an egg into my ramen once… I felt rich.

ru2bz46's avatar

@3or4monsters Been there. Now, I have my own chickens to give me eggs for (almost) free.

SeventhSense's avatar

@3or4monsters
I once bought some fine smelling dishwashing liquid and found pure contentment.
