A friend asked me yesterday what I would do if overnight I became a multibillionaire. I had the usual boring answer ready where I pay off my bills, invest for the future and so forth but then I started thinking. This is just for fun. What would you do? I’d like to visit every country in Europe and not count calories while I’m there. I’d like to buy a car that I can’t afford the auto insurance on right now. I would buy a winter home in Florida with an orange tree in the back yard. I would make generous donations to cancer research, diabetes research and the Heart Association. I would add a wing to my church so everyone could fit in. I would move my brother out of poverty in a dangerous part of Detroit and into a home of his choosing. He always wanted to live on a farm. Maybe I would buy him a farmhouse. My other brother and sister would be set up so they would never have to worry about money again. I would visit them more often. I would go to Las Vegas not to gamble but to see every show. I would pay the Beach Boys to play a concert just for me and my family and friends. I would travel around Australia just so I could say I had done it. My children would receive the best educations in the country and I would encourage them and support them as they became established. They would not, however, get a free ride. Too many kids have been spoiled by money. I have good kids and I wouldn’t want that to change. My wife; my beautiful wife could have whatever she wanted. I think what she’d like most would be a maid. If we’re going to go that route then we would need a mansion big enough to need servants. We would have house servants and lawn servants and security to keep the nuts away. I would go to Hawaii and pick a fresh pineapple. Then I would cut away the sides and eat it like a popsicle. I’d hire Megan Fox as my massage therapist…wait a minute. That might not be such a good idea. I’d lose half my money in a divorce. I better hold off on that one. In all seriousness, there are a lot of fun and different things I could do if I had that kind of money. Do you know what I would most look forward to doing? Writing. I would write every day if I could. That’s the big answer to the question. I would have my own little world and my computer. There my dreams would come to life while my family enjoyed my money. Sure, I would do some of that but I am a simple man with simple tastes. Let me write and I am happy.
