Successful failure

I dunno. There was this huge multi-state lottery pot going on. I didn’t even know about it until a friend started talking about $640M or whatever. I don’t pay attention to the lottery but when I expressed surprise and therefore interest, my friend asked if I wanted in. My reaction was visceral although I delivered my response in a most friendly laugh. NO! My interest was from an anthropological standpoint.

What would I do with 640 million dollars? People seem to be asking each other that a lot lately. I do not know. What would I do? The only thing I can immediately think of that involves spending actual money is to pay off my childrens’ student loans. But what else. Maybe… I would finally get around to re-doing the Landfill Chitchen and maybe even some of the rest of the house. I love the whole ticky-tacky old place but it’s all looking kind of tired to me these days. But even that wouldn’t even begin to eat up $640 million. Soooo. What. I love the automotive vee-hickles that we have already. It might be nice to have more vee-hickles. I know from experience that it is a whole heckuva lot easier to leave a vee-hickle for repairs somewhere for more than a day when you have an “extra” car. But I love the automotive vee-hickles that we have and I am not looking to replace them in the near future.

Other than that, I think I would want to live like I do now. I love my job, so I would want to keep that. I love schlepping back and forth to the Yooperland and Houghton Lake. It would be nice to know that if I needed some fast cash for whatever, I would have it. And that could mean anything from a plumbing backup to a trip to an exotic location or a need for major vee-hickle repairs.

    I always think of the land at the end of the beach.

    I like the pink fingernails in the foreground. Those are my hands, my iPhone, and my hat in the lower right corner.

    I don’t have any clue what I would do with that much money, so it’s probably best that I don’t win. 🙂

    don’t be silly! you would pay off student loans, and then you would hire me as your assistant. I could do ‘whatever’. sadly, I did not win either.

    Haha. Clearly there were a couple of things I did not think of 😉
