If you could choose to do anything for a day:

Next to my relationship with God, nothing means more to me than my family and friends.  My ideal day would be spent with them on a cool day at the beach.  I would also like to invite Shaquille O’Neil to join us.  I just think he is hysterical and his quick wit would really blend well with my friends and family.
