What I would do if I won the lottery

I have a long list of ideas for possible posts I just need to write up someday. This was one of them. Too bad I didn’t see it a week or so ago.

If I won the lottery, first off I’d be very surprised because I don’t play it. But if it was like a million dollars, I’d be thrilled because I’m pretty sure I could live comfortably for the rest of my life on a million dollars. Mainly because I wouldn’t waste it on stupid stuff like sports cars, or bling, or anything like that. In all likelihood, I’d open a used book store. I’d spend my days sitting at the counter working on my writing or reading, and not really care if I sold a book or not. It wouldn’t be an exciting life, but it would be a comfortable one.

You and I have the same ideas about what we'd like to do if able to comfortably retire.

Only a million would be good. I would pay the house off first

I feel the same way minus the book store I think I would help my family out and then help out some animal shelters and possibly pick a few random strangers that really could use a hand up

No, I figure I decrease my odds of winning only slightly by not buying tickets so I don't. But should I ever, I think we'd get a new roof. I'd pay off my mother's mortgage. A used bookstore and a store for indie authors. I'd make sure the local food bank was always well-stocked.

I'd use a million to get this house done over for a start, then to hire a storage facility and haul everything out that I don't use so I know what I'd be listing on eBay for certain rather than hunting around for it. We'd have a holiday in Anaheim, pay off the mortgage, cards and loan and invest the rest somewhere, I expect.
