Quick Query: Luxury Staff Person?

I've been thinking that we need to have a weekly (or every-so-often... let's not make it TOO structured) hypothetical question time. (I do this with my husband all the time, pose hypothetical questions to see what he'll say and get to know him better.) But in these questions, I want to hear from you, in order to know YOU better. Today's question:


If you could have one of the following luxury staff persons in your home FOR FREE, which one would you pick & why?

1) A masseuse (any kind you want, any time you want)
2) A stylist (hair, makeup, outfit)
3) A chef/dietician (able to cook whatever you want, including cooking for special diets, to help you lose weight, whatever)
4) A housekeeper (cleaning, tidying, home organization)
5) A nanny (this could be part-time or full-time, to help you every day or on certain days, etc.)
6) A personal trainer (to help you lose weight, tone, exercise properly)
7) A driver/chauffer (to drive kids to certain things so you can have some personal time, or whatever-- this person will attend to all your driving needs)
8) A personal secretary (to help keep up with paperwork for a home business, to help arrange your schedule/life)
9) An on-call interior decorator (to help with shopping, re-arranging, decorating... the works)

Please limit yourself to only one! :) Leave a comment telling your choice & why you chose what you did. To kick it off, I'll start...

I would have to pick (A). I mean we're talking luxury here... and NOTHING relaxes me or sets my world "right" in quite the same way as a good massage.

Actually, though, at our home in Central Asia, we are able to have a house keeper come about 10 hours/week, and right now, that's a necessity for me, having 3 kids, nursing MeiMei, learning language, and trying to make some inroads into community there. I figure as my kiddos get older too, I'll have some built-in househelpers! :)

SO, 24/7 on-call massages are my choice. What about you? I'll be interested to see what people say!

Actually, that would be #1- not A! I got my options confused... and it's my own doggone quiz! :)

Hmm. Since I am a nanny, #5 is out (although sometimes I'd like a nanny for the nanny!). I would say that I think the "right" answer for me would be #3 - I wouldn't have to think about what to eat, and it would always be available.

But in the end, since I always want a massage, I am choosing #1!

This is fun, Jess!

Great question, Jess! I would choose to have a stylist:) I love shopping and trying out new makeup/hairstyles, but I never seem to get things right... haveing a stylist on call would be awesome!

I would WANT the massage, but I would probably CHOOSE the housekeeper or the trainer. Until then, I guess I'll have to race around the house, cleaning!

Mom said...

Well, you know that normally I would say #1, because I'm the same way about massages, but lately since I've been losing weight, etc., I'd go with #6, because I think that would really help me, teach me and motivate me, and I wouldn't be "stuck" doing the same routine or exercises all the time.

I'd have to say housekeeper. Having boys...I would love for someone else to do around the toilets! :)

I would say #1. That is the only thing that could be done where my children would not lose out on the learning opportunity for the necessary skills in life and to feel like they are part of the family.
