But like Brewster and his millions, I have to spend it by the end of the day.
First, I’m buying my dream house in SoCal. It’s my grandparent’s home in Monrovia. That kills about $400 grand, so what’s left? I need to re-do the interior. We’ll say $50 grand for that. Probably not that much, but you never know. They re-did the kitchen and I want it turned back into the 1940’s kitchen that I know and love. And I need to add a/c if they haven’t already.
Then I need to buy my dream car, a Ford Expedition in a fabulous blue color. But that’s just for traveling. I need a car for driving around town, any suggestions? Nothing super fancy. I know, a Dodge Charger! And Honey can have his own car, too. So… $100 grand for cars. That brings us to $550k.
Now, I need my Silver Twinkie. That’s another $100k, unless I can find a used one (which I’m not opposed to). Because I don’t want the teeny tiny one, I need the mothership.
I was going to buy a timeshare, but with a Silver Twinkie I don’t need a place to stay, just a place to park! I’ve still got $350k to blow…
Maybe I’ll get that second home in Utah so I can visit my friends and family whenever I want?
Wait, I didn’t forget charitable acts, I was just saving the best for last. I would make large loans to KIVA and donations to OxFam, Doctors Without Borders, and a scholarship fund to the University of Utah.
The rest can go into gift cards and gas cards so I don’t really have to spend it all at once.
