This is it. I’m feeling lucky. $355 million lucky. The Mega Millions drawing is tonight. And I know that when I wake up tomorrow, we’re going to be $355 million richer (ok, about half that after taxes). Especially since I actually bought $5 in tickets this time.
I started to imagine what I would do with all that cash. I’d take care of lots of friends and family with that money. I’d buy a home in France where we’d spend half of the year. I think I’d keep our house – just fix it up a bit more. I really love our house.
I’d open up that children’s bookstore I’ve been dreaming of, and donate all the proceeds to a literacy charity. I’d volunteer in the schools, in museums… and set up trusts to donate to other worthy causes.
OK – I know damn well that there’s no chance in hell that we’re going to win the lottery. But it sure is fun to dream, no?
