How I Won at Life by Playing Powerball

This week the Powerball jackpot was up to $1.6 billion!

I hurried to get my ticket fantasizing about all the things I could buy:  a huge mansion, sports cars, a personalized plane, cruises, a chef, clothes, an occult bookshop/coffee house….but then I thought about something.  There was this underlying nagging feeling that was in my chest.

None of this would mean anything to me without someone to share it with.

Constant travel is fatiguing.

I can only eat so much without becoming unhealthy.

What would I have to look forward to after the first year?

Begging, crying relatives will alienate me from my family (when I constantly tell them no).

So here’s what I decided…

I want money so that I do not have to worry about it and so that I can live freely, enjoying earth’s offerings and besides that, I want love and happiness, because without anyone to share it with, it’s useless.

Thanks Powerball!
