The latest Mega Millions jackpot got up to 1.6 billion dollars. I never play the lottery, but every once in a while when there is a large jackpot, I will cave and get a ticket. So on Tuesday afternoon before the drawing, I ran out to the liquor store and got a quick pick ticket. I didn’t really expect to win, but it was hard not to daydream about what I would do with the money if I won.
I imagined paying off all of my debt, getting a luxury high rise apartment with a water view, and traveling the world. I would give away money to family and friends, set up college funds for my nieces and nephew, and donate to charity. I would splurge on a Chanel bag and Louboutin shoes.
I did not win, but it occurred to me that in all my thoughts about what to do with the money, not one of them was for cosmetic surgery for my eyes. I am happy that this thought did not pop into my head. It shows me that I am confident and secure with my unique look, and wouldn’t want to change that, even if I had a ridiculous sum of money.
