I’ve never played the lottery and never will, but I was listening to Barenaked Ladies on the radio today sing “If I had a Million Dollars” and started thinking to myself (out of boredom) what I would do with that money. At the same time I remembered the Amazon.com Wishlists people have set up on blogs.
Usually when people make these mental lists you get things like “Charity”, “Cure Aids” and “Solve the Middle East conflict”. So for once I thought, let’s be greedy. Let’s be as materialistic as humanly possible.
I thought: free yourself from spending on charity, your parents, your siblings and relatives. Forget about the poor and the hungry and the dying for just one moment. Be as creative and unrealistic as possible. Play golf on the moon, buy a room full of candy and swim in it, or buy a nuclear weapon and hold a relativly small nation hostage…all those things we’ve all wanted to do or have but could never afford to.
p.s. if you’re already a millionaire then think about giving some money to charity man, seriously, people are dying.
My Greed List:
1- A Martin OM-28 John Mayer Limited Edition…it’s a guitar, nuff said
