One Word Wednesday- Lottery
The Powerball jackpot has reached $360 million.
Three. Hundred. Sixty.
I'm thinking that might be enough for me to live on. Comfortably.
I'm also thinking about what I could buy with that much money.
I'd like a new car. I know, I know, I just got one. And I love it, I do. But, even my new-to-me Sienna has a few drawbacks. Like the fact that three kids have to sit next to each other. This results in the whole- "He's touching me" issue. Forget that they will fall asleep on the same couch, arms and legs draped over faces- even the slightest graze of a finger in the van is horror.
I'm thinking something like this-
Of course, with that kind of money, we'd get a new house. Eight bedrooms would be nice. And a bathroom for each one. But, there's no way I'm cleaning that many bathrooms that are used by boys. I'll have to have a maid, or two. One to do general cleaning, one who's job it is just to clean the toilets-- in, on and around. It may take most of the $360 million just to pay her. It'd totally be worth it.
I'm not sure what else I need. I could probably get some ideas from those who already have loads of money.
I heard once that Oprah gets a daily massage. Yep. That's on the list.
Celine Dion bought a $2,000,000 humidifier. If it made me sing like her, I'd get it.
Johnny Depp and Leonardo Dicaprio both own islands. I'm not sure I need an island. "But, you could walk around naked," you might argue. Yea, unless my money can also buy me a swimsuit model's body, I don't even want to do that on my own private island.
Donald Trump has a mobile champagne cooler. Seriously? I'd use mine for diet Coke, of course. Ice cold carbonation whenever I want? That's luxury.
Mariah Carey has over 1000 pairs of high heals. I have one. One pair. And, I can only wear them for the three hours I'm at church. I would, however, love 1000 pairs of socks. All the same color, so I never have to match them again.
I guess my needs are pretty basic. And, since Utah doesn't take part in the lottery, there's no chance I'll win. I'll keep my dreams of a spacious car and a maid in my head. They're about as likely as me sounding like Celine.
What would you buy?
