Friday Wrap Up - If I were a 1/2 billionaire...
If you haven't heard the Mega Millions jackpot is 500+ million dollars, good. One less person keeping me from winning tonight.
All of this talk (I swear it has been on every news program, every radio station, and a headline in every paper today) of the chance that someone could overnight be a 1/2 billionaire got me thinking.
If I were a 1/2 BILLIONAIRE, what would I do with the $$$? Not what would I "politically correctly" do
with the money but what would I really do with all of that cash?
Here are the top TEN things I would do (when I win tonight) in no specific order:
1.) Retire my husband (although I know even with that kind of money he would fight to keep working)
2.) Buy a jet. And a pilot. And a crew. Then fly in it. EVERYWHERE. STAT.
3.) Share. I would share with my family, my extended family, my friends...I don't think it would be any fun to have all of that money if I didn't have any one who could enjoy it with me.
4.) Hire someone to blow dry and style my hair every day; currently two of my least favorite things to do ever.
5.) Buy a few houses. Here, there, everywhere. Down market? It wouldn't matter. Maybe even a castle in Ireland just for fun.
6.) Donate to charity. Charities for military families, for babies with no medical care, for orphaned children, for research for very rare diseases affecting those I love. It would be AMAZING.
7.) Hire a personal chef. Yes, I love to cook, but I am sure given my status as a 1/2 billionaire I would be allowed to cook in my fabulous state of the art kitchen when the mood struck. Correction, I would hire a "Get me skinny and keep me there" personal chef.
8.) I would invent a sound proof, breathable, UV protected buggy that attaches to a golf cart so I could play golf every day with my husband without missing out on time with our nugget.
9.) I would hire a personal shopper and stock up on every thing I have ever had my eye on.
10.) I would pay Bethenny Frankel to be my neighbor, best friend and go-to for play dates.
What would YOU do with all of of that cash?!?!?!? I would love to hear what your caviar wishes and 1/2 billionaire dreams are!
