I’m taking a quick break from baby lockdown to tell you about the contest I’m hosting this week over at BlogHer. Just click here to answer a question that I think about most days: What would you do if you won the lottery? Usually on my commute when the bus passes the billboard with the Powerball and MegaMillions numbers boldly framed on it, I take those few minutes before entering downtown Seattle and think, what if. I would have a loose accounting of the numbers, knowing when the numbers had changed, when someone had won and wondering what their lives were like in the fresh shock of a windfall. And if I were in that position, what would I do?
I have a general plan. First lock the ticket in a bank vault. Hire a lawyer. Change my name. Pay off bills. Take a vacation. Set up a scholarship. Buy a Pacific Island. Put butter on a croissant because that’s crazy! Those things are made with butter! Buy Nathan every Thomas the Train accessory in existence so I don’t have to hear at Target, “MOM! LOOK! LOOK! THOMASSSS!” Then every morning wake up like P. Diddy, if P. Diddy had to breastfeed 24/10 (24 hours a day, 10 years of my life).
