What Would You Do If You Were Ridiculously Wealthy?

When Paul and I were working we would always play lotto, but since we retired for some reason or another we stopped. While we no longer had a two income family it wasn’t that there was a lack of funds we just stopped. Maybe laziness, no one made an effort to run out and buy the tickets.

Well now there are quite a few games Mega Millions, Super Lotto, Fantasy 5, Daily Derby and a whole bunch of scratchers. You could go broke if you played every game but on April 27th, I heard the jackpot was $166 million, okay I’m lazy but not that lazy, I bought ten dollars worth.

In my mind I had it all planned out, if I won the biggie. It would be a shared winning with my kids and everyone that’s special to me would be a winner, everyone from my BFF to by BFF cousin was on my list. (For legal reasons I am not able to print out who or what was on that list). Yes, I’m taking this seriously.

Well, I didn’t win. Not even two dollars, nothing, nada, zilch.

On the 30th, the jackpot was 224 million. Paul went out and bought another ten. I asked him if he still had his newspaper clippings of people he had read about over the years that if we ever able to we would help. Yes, he did. He’s such a sweet guy, I had to make a mental note to add them to my list.

Again zero, naught, zip.

Now the jackpot is 266 million. When I heard this I had to lay down with a cold cloth, decisions so many decisions to make. I really love my life, what changes would I personally make. Let’s see, Paul and I designed and built our dream house twenty five years ago, but now older and fatter maybe a one story home. Another thing I’d do is make Easy Spirit remake my favorite shoes that they discontinued. Lastly, I would carry enough pocket change so if I saw something I wanted I could just get it. But really nothing else, even though my cars are ten years old, they look and run great so I probably wouldn’t even make changes there.

Stop, hold the presses, one thing I’d do is make a private wing on my home for my mom like a granny house with private living quarters separated from the main house by a hallway, or barbed wire maybe a sharp shooter or two, nothing real elaborate.

Yes, I need to win, but not the biggie just enough so I can get my last wish because in the long run money doesn’t make you truly happy but peace and quiet does.

    OH!!! I very much agree with you!! Peace and quiet! Alone time! I crave it!!

    I’m not sure if you need the sharpshooter, though. Maybe just the barbed wire. 😉

    I was day dreaming one day and planned out what I would do if I won a million dollars and I came out in the hole. So, I guess it’s a good thing I didn’t win it. 🙂
