from Hello...My name is Lisa.
What is the first thing you would do if you won the lottery?
I have to admit first off, this isn't just a rhetorical question for me. I won the lottery just the other day. $2 from the scratch-off I bought with my Cherry Coke. Never mind that I paid $2 for the ticket (and another $2 for one that didn't even win). I won, dammit. I'm a winner.
Now, the reason I buy the $2 scratch-offs? My momma taught me to. I remember her telling my dad that the best reason to buy the tickets was because you were investing the price of the ticket for a chance to spend a few minutes day-dreaming about what you'd do if you won it all.
I've had these dreams many, many times. If I won it all, I would definitely quit my part-time job, but that wouldn't be the first thing.
First, I'd probably start calling in the contractors to fix and redo the stuff around the house that I want done.
And order a couple more nursing shirts (since I've yet to find a brick-and-mortar store where I can buy them).
And pay someone to fix the two cars in our garage, so hubby doesn't have to worry about them anymore.
Okay, this could go on all day, right? But the original question was for the first thing I'd do...
First...hmm....I think the immediate thing on my agenda would be to take hubby out for dinner, and tell him our lives were about to get a little easier. I married him for a lot of reasons, the first one being that he's the one I'd be most excited to share such a huge joy with.
