The final round of Brain Game: If you could have one day that is reversible (so nothing you did counted), what would you do?

The final round of Brain Game: If you could have one day that is reversible (so nothing you did counted), what would you do?

Every Monday we ask our Brain Game contestants one interesting, thought-provoking or just plain quirky question. Their answers will be published anonymously in Young Post. Then readers can vote for their FAVOURITE answer. We will eliminate the contestant with the LEAST votes every week until we have a winner.

The ultimate Brain Game winner will receive Sony's digital music player NWZ-A15 and Sony's headphone MDR-1A, worth HK$3,860.

The Contestants

Contestant 1

More like what I wouldn't do! At the crack of dawn, I would search the junkyard of my scrapped dreams, desires and regrets, and convert them into a bucket list. It will be called Operation: Alter Ego of Miss Goody Two-Shoes.

Every mission needs a makeover, so I'll make a quick trip to the hair salon to get purple highlights. Oh! As well as the tattoo parlour to get a wicked symbol of defiance. With my bad girl image all charged up, I'll probably do something I may never ever have the guts to do again: confess to my crush! Even if he did reject me, he wouldn't remember.

Being a dog lover, it was my unfulfilled dream to initiate one as my family member. However, as fate would have it, my mother has an intense fear of dogs. Hence, my next daring step is to adopt a dog - he will be named Argus.

Afterwards, I will hike up to Tai Mo Shan and try out paragliding. My desire to fly was always the same as my fear of falling. So, that day I will take the leap of faith and soar across the sky. I will also scream out loud - not that I'm a coward, but to release all my pent-up frustrations.

After my rebellious yet liberating day, I would stay on the mountain-top until I woke up from my midsummer night's dream.

If I had a day like this, I'd definitely go watch all the chick flicks I've been missing out on because of school. I'd fill up my day with so many movies.

Once I watched them all, I'd go on to watch all the old TV shows that used to air on Disney Channel (you know what I'm talking about, Zack and Cody and Hannah Montana - don't act like you never watched them!)

It's a great way to relax as well as entertain myself. When this day is reversed, I'd spend my time studying … or will I?

If I could have one day that is reversible,I would not waste the time .In fact,I always enjoy for using my phone with chatting,listening the music,reading the ebook etc.My phone is attractive for me.It's like I might become extremely worried if I leave my phone just in 10cm. Also,I need a long time for doing homework and studying.I think I have a gap between me and my parents.
In my reflection,I should take my family members's feeling at the first consideration.I would get more spare time to my family.Furthermore,I would control myself with waste time at my phone.
How about you? Would you think about if you can reverse your time?
