My answer to this question varies day by day. Sometimes I would buy a pair of these bad boys.

Other days I would plan a wonderful vacation somewhere that doesn't look like central ohio does today.

Today however I'm feeling curious about my origins so I would use that $1000 to pay for a P.I. to search for my birth parents. Adoption and searching for birth parents can be a touchy subject for all involved. What if someone doesn't want to be found? What if your adoptive parents feel slighted by you looking? No one can answer those questions for you. For me personally I feel like I'm finally old enough and mature enough to handle whatever I find. So if someone handed me $1000 today, that's what I would spend it on.
