What would you do if ….. you won a million dollars ? No doubt we have all dreamed of this at some point suddenly having a million dollars that is all ours to do what we want with , with no restrictions on what we spend it on. I know I have but as someone who can’t even win an argument it is not likely to happen for me . However supposing it did happen to you what would you do ? After you woke up from the fainting spell you had when you found out ? The possibilities are endless are they not ? Let’s see now pay bills surely would be the first thing you got done , put a bit away for later , now what ? Mind you a million dollars these days is not worth as much as it sounds anymore it sounds like with that you are set for life with a bit left over for fun and games. The way I see it now though by the time the bills are paid a safety net in place there is not really much left over , the value of the $ has gone down so much now it is just amazing . I actually wonder how much that million dollars is really worth now , by the time you add in all the extras when you buy something or go away or anything ? Once you add in all the little extras like the hidden taxes and add ons plus the GST or VAT or whatever tax is relevant or any other taxes plus exchange rates etc your million dollars has shrunk quite a bit now yes?
So what would you do ? Let’s say for arguments sake it was me ( lol asif ) first thing would be all bills paid , safety net in place , depending on what’s left then I would seriously think about what next , would it be a car or a really good holiday ? The choice for me would be very hard as we need both lol not even had a honeymoon yet , so the holiday would be very desirable , also we don’t have a car so that too is desirable , decisions , decisions , lol so really I am glad I will never have to make the choice , it would drive me bats lol yeah I know I already am .. that’s a given really after all I am married , lol sorry dear ..Giggles ..
Talking of him lol he is the same as me in that he would do the same , pay bills , safety net aside , then just see what to do from there . He has the same thought as me too in that it is so unlikely to ever happen he does not torture himself with all the what ifs , what is the point of working it all out if it is never going to happen ? Why torture yourself with impossibilities when there are there are so many other thing we need to think about ? To be fair though sometimes when I’m bored out of my nutty head the thought does go through and I start to think what would I do ? Sigh it is a pain but I do find myself thinking like this when things are tough and every dollar has to be squeezed till it screams , then the mind tends to wander off on these tours of fantasy .
So got me to thinking what anyone else would do , would they even bother to pay the bills and put a safety net in or would they just live for the minute and blow it all on trips or parties or things ? The possibilities as I said before are endless and can make your head spin trying to work it out do I or don’t I ? Do I do the sensible things or do I just say sod it I’m going to blow it all and hang tomorrow , actually a lot of people live their whole lives with that attitude and that really is a worry . Back to the million yes it would be fun just to have a nice cruise or to fly around the world or just have 1 huge party , but could you really be like that ? Could you really have the guts so to speak to just blow it without a thought of what tomorrow might brings ? Could you really be that irresponsible and blow it all ? I know I just could not do that , I would have to do the sensible thing , but just because I am like that doesn’t mean anyone else would do that .
So the million dollar question then is , what would you do with a million dollars ? Spend it all ? Do the right thing and be sensible ? Help others out ? Just put it away for later ? So many ways to spend it , so many things become possible now . To many people the sudden acquisition of so much money changes them immensely and not all for the good , some just let it go to their heads and become power hungry , some realise that now they have lots of money they can say or do what ever they feel like , that type of thinking leads to trouble for all concerned . So what would you do ??? Well at least I unless really really bored do not worry about the what if lol I may be silly but I’m not silly , well not that silly anyway to worry about impossibilities . There are way too many real things to be worried about and sorted out to waste time like this on things that do not matter , living day to day , looking after my home and my hubby are way more important to me than this mindless merry go round of things that can never happen.
My fantasy is having two men at once. One cooking. One cleaning….
And one waiting on you hand and foot?
