Let’s suspend reality for a moment. Many people in America are doing today that anyway.
As of this writing, the Mega-Millions lottery jackpot is up to $640,000,000. That’s more than half a billion dollars. What would you do if you won this enormous jackpot? I admit, I’ve fantasized about it a bit.
Of course, I would make sure that my family and I were taken care of: housing, college tuition, all that good stuff. I would keep my house – I like it here – but I’d probably put in a pool and maybe hire a housekeeper (with excellent carb-counting skills) to do the cooking and cleaning for me.
But what of the rest? Although I’ve probably got a better chance of waking up tomorrow, magically cured of diabetes, than I do of matching all six numbers, it’s still nice to dream.
