To Be A Millionaire

Do you ever wish that someone very wealthy would die and leave all their money to you? Then you could make a huge life-change based on your new wealth and do something quite out of the ordinary and anger lots of people. But they wouldn't really be able to do anything about it because you're so rich and money would take care of everything. Before I go any further, please know that this is not a plea from silent desperation because Fauf is not content with her life. On the contrary, she is very content with her blissful life that includes marriage, a wonderful husband, and a cozy nest. But I'm just saying, that there are moments in life when I do wish someone wealthy would die and leave me all their riches and we could break loose and do something crazy that would constitute really living a dream. I figured it's okay to dream about it and actually have some ideas in the event that this really happens. I don't want to sit around wasting time thinking of what to do. Because in my experience, the longer I linger, the sooner my practical sensible side creeps in, and before I knew it, I would be depositing that huge inheritance into some trust fund for my unborn children's college education! So here's my list of ideas in the event that I am blessed by some old wealthy geezer's death:

1. Move to New York for a year and live in a cute flat in the center of town (like on You've Got Mail.)

2. Travel the world for a year or so

3. Design and build my own dream home wherever I decided (it would have a library)

4. Buy an island

5. Visit all the Disneylands all over the world and stay in all the finest Disney hotels

6. Publish my own books

7. Open an art gallery in Carmel

8. Take Jennifer Garner out for lunch and pay her to be my best friend (although this wouldn't be too far of a stretch because I really believe we could be good friends.)

9. Break into the movie world and direct my own films

10. Invest the money (I guess....I had to list one practical wise thing)

Ok. Number 8 was ridiculous. All of the other ones, I was ok with. What about sharing some with all of your dear friends...? Are you saying that you're only my friend because you're not rich? Is our friendship a lie?!
