Manic Monday - Want


This week’s Manic Monday word is Want, and my brain is overwhelmed with the possibilities. Because I’m a greedy bitch.

It’s probably pointing out the obvious to say that I want to be able to take my daughter into a store without her getting upset over something and screaming so loudly they can hear her in the next state. But I digress.

Here is what I want. I want to win the lottery. I may have mentioned this before. I want to win the big lottery – the Powerball. And I want to win it when it is upwards of $150 million. So far, I am investing $1 almost every week and it hasn’t paid off yet. I’m starting to get annoyed.

If I won, I would seriously try to do some good things with the money. Really! So why is it never the deserving? The last big winner I saw on the news was some white trash woman missing a few teeth. When asked what she was going to do with the money, she answered, “I’m gonna buy myself a Harley. Yeee haw!”

Dude. Seriously. I can’t believe these people keep winning. I have decided that God has a very twisted sense of humor.

I have thought often about what the first thing would be that I would buy. And I think I have decided that I would buy new bath towels. Yes, really. New towels. And not just regular bath towels – I want a bath towel that’s the size of a small country. I think those are bath sheets, right?

Anyway, my question to you is this: What is the first thing you would buy if you won the lottery?

You made me laugh with the broad with no teeth wanting a Harley. Sure she does. More like all the dope she wants. I hope you win.

I never play, but I'd probably buy my son a home. Have a great MM. :)

I would most definitely buy a new vehicle...then I'd have to work on baby stuff since I gave all mine away assuming I'd never need it again! *sigh*

I think I'd pay off my house and buy a secret hideout. Then I'd become Batman. LOL

The first thing I would go do is go hide with my husband and make our plan. When I say hide I mean five stars hiding.

First thing I'd buy is a good lawyer, have my condo cleaned, and buy bedromm furniture. Man, I'm greedy, too!

I've won the lottery a few times... Just $4-10 though...bugger!

I'd pay off my house. Set up trust funds for the kids' education. I'd do two things for me: I'd have the hardwood floors installed in my house to get rid of the 20 yr. old carpet and I'd buy a new car for my husband. His is almost 7 years old and has 100+k miles on it.
I'd set up a foundation and give to people and organizations that I felt really needed the funds.
Oh - and I might even consider treating my friends to a dinner out to celebrate at the local burger joint.

Happy MM!

Seriously - the first thing I'd do is set up college funds for the kids.

Bath sheets = awesome first purchase.
Then tickets for Mo & Neila on a cruise would be good...
