The biggest prize on offer in the history of Australian lottery is upon us and for every one in two adults who have purchased what they hope to be a winning ticket is asking themselves – “What would I do with the money?” – My answer is “what wouldn’t I do with it!”.
Everybody dreams of a large windfall one way or another, it’s one of those fantasies that most people have except of course the filthy rich where $90 million is spare change. It’s an overwhelming thought, being able to buy, do and go to places you have always wanted. You would get at least a couple of minutes daydream time out of it, picturing yourself in a European destination, driving a exotic cars and owning a beachfront mansion complete with a Ferreti yacht. My dream is not as extravagant, Donna & I would travel to Europe to visit some of the countries we missed out on and then head over to Asia. Come back home and build our dream house, buy a couple of cars, then start a family and pay off our families mortgages so they can retire. Perfect right! It’s simple and realistic. I also want to buy a racehorse I think or breed thoroughbred, I’ve always wanted that, I think that would be an exciting venture. I know Donna would probably buy shoes, in the thousands that would put Imelda Marcos to shame. Perhaps an investment in a shoe factory would be wise.
The only problem is the odds of winning is about 1 in 45 million which means you have less chance of winning this draw than dying in a plane crash. But if you’re like me who leaves things to the last minute and not buy a ticket, then you have absolutely no chance of winning.
