On What I Would Do “If I Had a Million Dollars”

How many are familiar with this song?  I, personally, love this song.  It is fun, uplifting, and really makes me think about what I would do if my income were disposable, and/or if I really had a million dollars.

I was discussing this with my friend, R, yesterday, and we had a good laugh over my number one “would-do”, if I did, in fact, have a million dollars.

If I had a million dollars, I would never do the dishes again for the rest of my life.  No – I would not buy a dishwasher; rather, I would just buy a new set of brand new, shiny, never before eaten off of dishes every time I ran out of clean ones.  I really, really hate doing dishes.

Never again!

If I had a million dollars, I would buy books!  I would basically create a friggin’ library in my home.  You would probably not see me for days, weeks, months even because I would be so caught up in the glory of books and of reading said books that I would not emerge from my library for that long.  And when I finally do emerge, I will be pale, pasty, and stick-thin from never seeing the sun and forgetting to eat because of my enthrallment with lovely, delicious, amazing BOOKS!

Like this only I would have a bajillion times more books than I currently have, though.

If I had a million dollars, I would buy Q-bear all the toy cars he wants, and I would build a room for him to play with them in so I would not have to pick them up all of the time.

Kid’s got a LOT of cars.

If I had a million dollars, I would buy the best DSLR that money could buy and really learn how to photograph pictures.  I would subsequently make prints and sell them for millions of dollars, thus ensuring that my million dollars never ran out, and my income became truly disposable.

If I had a million dollars, I would do many, many more things, too.  I would take my entire extended family to lunch, or on vacation!  I would pay all outstanding bills in my name, including school bills.  I would pay off everyone’s I know school bills, in fact.  I would buy a year’s supply of food – or donate money straight up – for people in the local community who work hard to earn a living, but still cannot manage to make ends’ meet.  I know that money cannot buy happiness, but it could really go a long way toward easing my worries, and those of others, in order for me to pursue that which WOULD make me happy.  Either way, no matter how much money I will ever have, I will always be a bargain shopper and probably will not pay more than fifteen dollars for a shirt or twenty bucks for a pair of jeans.  In other words, no matter my monetary situation, bargain shopping is in my genes. Get it?

What would you do if you had a million dollars?
