To continue with lotto musings (as MegaMillions is up to 180 as of this post (110-cash option[/efn_note], I’ve been told that when you think about the question “what would you do if you won the lotto?”, the answer is some variant of “well, you should get a career doing that sort of thing”.
So, like, if you brew beer compulsively then you should open a brewpub or get a job brewing beer at an established one, if your favorite thing to do is take carburetors apart, clean them, then put them back together, then you should get a job as a mechanic, so on and so forth.
Now, I’ve always thought that there is a difference between, say, spending 4 hours on Saturday making the perfect stout and spending 44 hours a week doing the same. The thing that is perfect for half of a weekend afternoon may not, in fact, be an awesome way to spend all day Tuesday.
And, on top of that, there is the whole “I want to sing songs from various musicals!” issue where, you know, we kinda have no shortage of people who want to sing songs from various musicals for a living to the point where we’ve kind of got a glut of them. (And that’s without the whole thing of “yeah, I might pay money to see a production of Oliver!, but I’m not going to pay money to see someone sit on a stool and sing their favorite songs from Oliver!” issue.)
And I pretty much came to the realization that the stuff that I would do if I won the lotto is a lot closer to “sit on a stool and sing songs” kinda stuff than “I’d like to troubleshoot certificate errors” kinda stuff. (Heck with the stool, gimme a Lay-Z-Boy. And let’s drop the singing songs as well.)
Which makes winning the lotto pretty much the only option. What’s 180 after taxes? You do this in your head and you say that you get 40% of the first number and then 60% of the next number which is about 24% of the original and that’s close enough to 25% for jazz and so… 180 cut in half is 90 and that cut in half is 45 and so that’s 45 million. Take care of denieces and denephews and the various besties and whatnot and… oh, my goodness, there’s still enough left over to get a decent return and live off of that. I mean, assume a 3% return (not overly optimistic) and even if you’ve only got 20 million left, that’s 600,000 a year.
That’d cover rent, food, vinyl, and Lay-Z-Boy maintenance.
Which, really, is a daydream that will carry me through the weekend.
So… what’s on your docket?
