If you won 50 million dollars, what would be the first thing that you would do/buy for yourself?

  1. I’m presuming this $50 million is after taxes? Because if it’s BEFORE, I might have enough left over to buy a nice meal. But in fantasy land where taxes don’t apply and I have a big wad o’ dough? Pay off my mortgage and buy myself an island. Put half my money in a trust, and help out my family with a bit of the rest. Go see Ireland…I have mad plans. And it’s fun to dream!

    1. Oh… I LOVE dreaming 🙂 (surprised? :P) I should have mentionned that the amount was after paying the taxes for you in the US. It always appals me to think that they promise you so many millions, and then, when someone wins, they cut back more than half of the jackpot before giving out a check (am I right?). Here, in Canada, if you win 50 million bucks, you win 50 million bucks. And you only have to pay taxes on the interests of that amount.

      So, yeah, you’d be getting your island, and you’d see Ireland 😉 *Fingers crossed*

  2. I am definitely going to pay off all my loans to my mom to get her to finally back off before getting myself a RV or a trailer with a truck to drive off to the sunset. Whatever’s left will be invested or donated to a worthy cause like environment conservation or saving wildlife.

    1. I can understand better why you mother seems to try to control you so much now. And I do wish you that you can get this independance soon… I can totally see you in that little RV, traveling around the States, taking beautiful pictures and sharing them with us 😉

  3. I’d definitely buy myself a writing room. Probably a whole building. It wouldn’t have to be a large building–I’d have a lot left over, but I’ve never really had a space of my own. Although, as Lex Luthor once said, “Thank goodness my needs are small. Eh, as it turns out, I have this affinity for, uh . . . beachfront property.” And when asked what he wanted he simply said, “Australia!”
    Could I get that for $50 million?

    1. LOL, I’m pretty sure I couldn’t get Denmark fo $50 million, and it is a tiny country, so I highly doubt you could have Australia. What we could do, though, is buy you a building, name it ”Australia”, and then you can claim to own Australia. And I bet you’d still have enough money to travel to Oz many times, and have a jolly good time there 😉

    1. That’d be a nice start… If you want me to, I could take Monkey to Denmark’s Legoland, while you make the nanny/bodyguard interviews. Tell him the Danes make incredible hot dogs! I’m sure we’d have a great time 😉

      1. Awww that’s great (for both the land owning and the shared interest)! I wish you much luck, and if you get your very own railroad, I want to come and try it 😉 hehehehe

        P.S. thank you for sharing your wife’s blog, I’m following both of you now 😉

    1. I am not surprised the least bit, dear Caramel 🙂 But I sure hope you would treat yourself too. We have a saying in French ”Charité bien ordonnée commence par soi-même” (literally ”Well-ordered charity begins with one’s self”) 🙂 xx

      1. ok….maybe I would spend it on a pretty wedding dress – one I could wear for other occasions though – not a one-off obviously bride type…but something that would be multi-purpose.

      2. You definately deserve a pretty wedding dress for that very special day 😉 I must say, I am well behind with my blog reading, but is there a date set???? If you tell me (you can do it in private at cyranny@gmail.com), I’ll do a donation on Jack’s and your behalf to Doctors Without Borders on that special day 🙂 🙂 🙂

      3. No date yet…xx
        I would be happy to elope! He wants a big wedding. But the Pandemic social distancing guidelines curb all of his ideas.
        Plus I feel exhausted after all the extra work this year. I would like a rest before the wedding so I can feel a little more human again.

  4. I would get a new phone number so I would not be swamped with calls asking me to give money to this or that. Then I would start to set up a Foundation to support charities that I already support but now could do it in a bigger way.

    1. Oh my… Yes! Changing phone numbers should be number 1 on every jackpot winner’s list! Chéri is aware that if we win, there will be a lot of money giving 😉 We could very well live just on the interests of the jackpot money, so why keep all the wealth to ourselves??

    1. Awwww I love your project… Everything about it! Helping abandonned cats is already a lot, but to help homeless people also? Brilliant! I hope you win enough money to make that wish come true 🙂 🙂 🙂
