Orange Is the New Black: What would you do with your last 24 hours of freedom?

In honor of the July 11 premiere of the new Netflix series Orange Is the New Black, I was given the challenge by to talk about what I would do with my last 24 hours of freedom.  The series focuses on a woman who is sent to prison because of her relationship with a drug smuggler. 

With only 24 hours to enjoy my freedom, here is what I would like to do:

Location: While I thought I would immediately hop a plane to Bora Bora, my dream destination, the flight takes too long. I don't want to waste my 24 hours on a cramped flight and have to pay for my luggage. So, I am off to Malibu just 15 minutes down the road from my humble abode. I figure a beautiful view is all I need, so this oceanside home should do the trick. All of my friends and family can visit while I chow down on my favorite meal.

Food: As a gal from New England, there is nothing better than a Maine lobster. I would make sure to eat a two pound lobster dripping in butter with a baked potato, corn on the cob and steamers with even more butter. A glass of champagne and a bottle of wine to toast my last day of freedom will also be on hand. Some other items that might make it on to my glorious food table include truffle mac and cheese, homemade bread with butter from Napa Rose restaurant and cannolis from Mike's Pastry in Boston.  If I'm going to have face prison food, I'm going to make sure my meal is good, expensive and high in calories.

Fashion: I want to spend my last day in the outside world dressed to impress since the orange jumpsuit isn't going to do much for my pasty complexion inside the jail cell. Here's the outfit I picked out to enjoy on my last day of freedom. I wanted something cute and flirty with a really expensive pair of shoes I would never buy for myself in real life. Oh, and a splash of color with the really is the new black.

Relax: A massage, a facial and a mani/pedi are a must for an important day like this. I'm not sure they do extractions for your pores in prison. I want to be as relaxed and laid-back as possible, I imagine the inmates are rather intense, don't you think?

Sleep:  I want the Westin Hotel to send me one of their signature Heavenly Beds so I can sink into a comfy bed because prison sure isn't a five-star experience. I could snuggle with my significant other and slumber away after I've eaten my weight in food and massaged every muscle to say goodbye to my freedom. There is nothing better than a good night's sleep.

What would you do with your last 24 hours of freedom? Let me know in the comments below.

  1. I would think you would want to spend your last 24 getting a tetanus shot and learning Krav Maga.

    1. creature comforts for you. You are ready to defend! I want to hear from Becca. I want to see if she would be in her pole dancing class!

  2. If I were on my way to prison I think the last thing I would want is for my new roommates to know I do pole fitness. ^_^

    If only had a day I would probably spend it with my family because I'd never want my daughter visiting me in prison, so that's what I'd do. Unless, I could get Mark Gantt to come over and give me a backrub then I'd rather do that.

    1. They wouldn't know though! This is your last 24 hours of freedom. Maybe you and Mark talk a pole dancing class together? LOL

    2. I like that you chose to call your fellow inmates, roommates. Conjures up images of slumber parties and Smores.
