To buy or not to buy

The number is staggering.  500 million.  Can we even comprehend that much wealth?

And if we can, what would we do with it all?
First, we need to purchase the ticket, so we transport ourselves to the nearest convenience store dreaming of the ever so remote possibility that we will be the victor in this game of chance.

The ticket is acquired as we promise the clerk that she will share in the earnings that will surely be ours to grant.
We make our way back home, hoarding this seemingly priceless document in our greedy little hands praying, oddly enough, that it will make us a millionaire.
The daydreams begin.
What to purchase first...

A bigger house.  Yep, a justifiable first purchase.  A car.  Ummm...lets go with 30 cars, one for each day of the month.  Some land..not much.  Just some in every state.  Furniture for the bigger house, travels to all seven continents, about houses in each continent too?  Some new clothes for each of the seasons, you may want to buy the new Vikings stadium..(waste of money in my opinion, but hey, it's your money!).  A yacht complete with the help, a helicopter, a plane, heck, let's throw in the train!  A farm with lots of animals.  Goats, horses, sheep, cows, with again lots of help to take care of all of them.  Exotic fruits and vegetables every night to eat.  Why not eat like kings!
a 4wheeler, some snowmobiles, ski equipment, lawn equipment, on wings I fly with thoughts of things.

We rouse from our thoughts and verify the numbers.  Hard to believe that number after number is not on our ticket.  How can that be?  After minutes of denial, we yield to the reality that it was all just a dream.
