My Own Private Idaho…Posted: November 26, 2012
I have seen multitudes of “If I win the Powerball…” posts on Facebook and here and there on Twitter. Honestly, if I won, which would be unlikely times a million, (especially since I rarely ever buy a ticket) I would give some money to our adult children (along with a disclaimer that they never ask for money ever again) and move somewhere far, far away with my husband and my short girl.
But my own private something? Absolutely.
A commune for all my favorite people who are my most favorites ever? Yes, I would love this.
I think the key would be to unplug yourself from everyone who will make a pest of asking you for money. Hire a great attorney, hire a great accountant and financial consultant, and go sail away somewhere, far, far, away.
I don’t even know if I can think about it.
But the reality is this. I will forget to buy a ticket until I watch the news Wednesday night. If no one wins, again, I will forget to buy a ticket between Wednesday night and Saturday. It is just how I operate.
So, no private Idaho for me. No private Idaho commune for you either friends. Unless you win, and invite me to live in the commune, then I am packing my bags.
