2. It would be a nice chit of walking-around money.....

I'd play, but I've already been hit by lightning......

16. Seriously ...

You were hit by lightning? How long ago was that?

17. Not directly.

It was back in 1988. I was walking by a utility pole, when it struck the pole, but I was only ten feet from it. Literally knocked me fifteen feet! The pole made the WEIRDEST sound I've ever heard--to this day, I can't give a good description of that sound. I wasn't hurt, but I just felt strange for three or four days after.

3. When I win, I'll buy everyone in The Lounge a brand new car

Sure, it'll be up to you to determine who gets to drive it each day.


There are at least three charities I'd start if I win the big lotto. Damn, that'd be so much fun to do so much good.

4. Ok, I'll start the objections...

I had to buy a car recently after I was in an accident. What I'd really like is a lifetime membership to a cryotherapy center. It wouldn't set you back much more than a moderately priced new car. I'd be eternally grateful.

Thank you for your consideration.

7. I've also fantasized about who all I would give money to

My personal needs and wants are pretty simple.

8. Bought a ticket today. My husband and I decided that if we won we would just give money

away to people in need. I would also hire a cleaning company and never clean my house again!

12. If I win I'm immediately giving away 3/4 of it to my three siblings.

Share the wealth. Share the responsibility.

13. Why not just BUY a cleaning company, ...

... and never clean ANY of your houses again?

And, if you win, aren't you a long-lost cousin of mine?

15. :) That would be the biggest problem with winning the lottery I would think. Everyone

would want something from you. I think I would move somewhere nobody knew me and live pretty modestly... maybe do a little traveling. I would get a house near a nice lake or the ocean with a big porch and a garden and spend a lot of time reading and walking the dog at the beach.

10. I have to chuckle. I stopped buying lottery tickets regularly years ago.

But for some reason once a lotto, power ball etc. gets into "news making" territory, I but a ticket or two. So I'll take a chance on $500 million, but anything less isn't worthy of me taking a chance? I do laugh at myself.
