A million men would grab every chance to become a millionaire. What easier chance than to answer a million dollar question? But then there’s a bunch of chaps, who didn’t even let the 5 rupee question go in vain.
Question: What would you offer me if I had 5 rupees to spare?
Answer: It’s down there!
For my readers who are not from India (and I do hope there are) 5 rupees, in today’s date, would amount to somewhere between nothing and 8 US cents. Yes pretty much something that you’d be overjoyed at having in your wallet. So to not make the rupee feel bad, let’s say 5 rupees now equates to a dollar. And now you have a sizeable amount of currency that you can be happy earning.
I asked this question to my entire WhatsApp list and exactly 76 of them were coincidentally free to delve into finding the ultimate good/service that my 5 rupee/dollar could get me.
And here they go.
And they left me diabetic, in my thoughts of course. So if I do die because of high blood pressure, you have precisely 16 of these sweet-toothed guys to imprison.
They were by far the majority. Hershey’s and Cadbury, all the very best!
And then there came this bunch of guys, whom I don’t even know what to say about.
I’ll sure have a long day at the wishing well. I would wish I never met any of these 7 ridiculous pocket-clinking guys.
And then there were 5 of them who came up with pens. They told me they’d like me to continue writing. But then, I have no doubt they’d stab me. Money is man’s worst enemy.
Surprisingly to me, there were only 2 that offered ‘advice’. But now I’m grateful there were only 2. Their advice was priceless. I kept my 5 rupees with me.
I would receive the following items (just one each), had I made the mistake of actually trading my valuable 5 rupees.
-A rose (yep, that’s right)
-A travel ticket
-Glue Stick (to stick the broken parts of my life together)
-A glass of cold water
-5 jokes (LOL)
-and a bunch of other things
The following were a few of the more ‘less common items’ that these chaps came up with
-Beer (yes, for 5 rupees!)
-5/11th of a cigarette (I think the guy needed my 5 rupees desperately)
-A book aptly titled “Get rich!”
-More money (yes, my brother understood my situation pretty well)
Also, it made complete sense for a doctor friend of mine to offer me the following:
But really, can apples actually replace doctors?
But what stole my heart was this!
I wish I had an unlimited stash of 5 rupee notes.
No, you don’t get diabetic with home-made muffins.
One guy offered me something that I just couldn’t bargain with.
He offered me sympathy!
