The Mega Millions jackpot is at a record $540 million dollars. Holy hell, that's a lot of money. Steve and I never play the lottery but we've bought tickets and we're obviously going to win, so here's are some thoughts on how I could put that money to good use. After the typical boring retirement plans, college plans, investments, charity, blah blah blah of course.
I'd buy you a monkey. Haven't you always wanted a monkey? (obviously)
I'd turn our entire basement into our own mini Catch Air so Anna and all of her little friends could play whenever they wanted.
We would buy a bigger house with better entertaining areas, more bedrooms, and a better kitchen. And a saltwater pool with a super deluxe kid-proof gate. And enough land where the guys could go play air soft and not worry about getting arrested. Oh and some ATVs because Stevo likes those.
I would buy a cute little apartment in Paris where I could go and pretend to be French for a few months out of the year.
We would take a tour of the tropics, because I have always wanted to go somewhere where I can lie on the beach and have frozen drinks brought to me all day, and you can see all the way down to the bottom through the water.
I would hire a full-time housekeeper. Not just a cleaning service. An honest-to-goodness housekeeper. It would be amazing.
I would also hire a personal stylist because I never really feel like I dress myself all that well. And if you're going to be a multimillionaire you have to be dressed well, probably.
We really would go to Disney World.
We would buy a beautiful beach house because I have always wanted one. And it would be decorated to kitschy beach perfection and have all the proper beach toys.
