The rational side of my brain understands that my odds of NOT winning are 99.999999947%. But as they say, you can’t win if you don’t play!
The way I see it, the $10 spent is a tiny price to pay for a few hours of wildly imagining how I will spend my winnings when my numbers are announced tonight.
I’ll take a chunk off the top, say $10 million, and set up a foundation. Wouldn’t it be fun to channel you inner Oprah and be able to change the lives of people?
Education is very important to our family so I’d take another chunk and set up an education trust. This fund would be available to all family members for anything relating to education. College tuition, of course, but also let’s say that Aunt Kate wants to take a wine course to further her knowledge and appreciation of wine. Done. Education is education, no matter the subject.
Although the family is spread all over, we are very close and love spending time together. So, obviously we would want to purchase a membership in a private jet company. Thinking that would be wiser than buying our own jet and keeping a pilot on the payroll….but maybe not, I will have to look into that.
Obviously, we will want to build or buy a compound – an estate of some sort – at which we can gather for holidays and family meetings. I’m pretty sure that all multi-millionaire families have a compound.
Oh, wait, forgot about taxes. The IRS is gonna want their share. And, the fabulous state of California will be all giddy about snagging part of my bounty. Goody, goody…
Man, this is hard work! So many decisions, so much responsibility. Good thing that the dream will be over tomorrow morning when I wake up to hear that the winning ticket was purchased at a liquor store in Mitchell, South Dakota. Still, it was a fun dream while it lasted.
