If You Won the lottery, what is the VERY FIRST thing you would do?


I have clearly been day dreaming, night dreaming or whatever you want to call it, about what I would do if I won the lottery.

I know if I won the $50 million Lotto Max, I have a list of those I want to help, bills to pay off, vacations to take with my family, donations, a home to buy……but what is the very first thing I would do? I’m not too sure, but in the sequence of events this is what I imagine.

Scream. Scream again. Double Check the lottery. Jump up and down and scream again. Check lottery again.

Probably shake uncontrollably as I call Mr. Hubby, who would never believe me. Tell him to come and get me from work because I AM SERIOUS!

Thank God. Thank the Lottery Ticket salesperson.

See Mr. Hubby, together we both scream. Then decide to shut-up before some new “friends” find us.

Cry a little as I would realize financial woe is a thing of the past for us, and the ones we would help.

Cash in Lottery Ticket in Kamloops, then go to The Wildlife Park for the day, and make a donation. Drive slowly home, decide if a rural Starbucks is actually a feasible idea. Decide against it.

Contemplate who to tell, and who to tell first, or just anonymously send a load of cash their way.

Talk about working, deciding if we would?

Maybe part-time, or maybe just bake cupcakes and make delicious Donairs out of a funky food truck.

Maybe not.

Maybe an orchard with peaches, apples, grapes, cherries, or a winery.

Maybe.

We would finally get home from cashing in our ticket and be up all night, restless, excited, and totally weirded out-in a good way.

Finally Fall asleep.

Wake up 40 minutes later, realizing the first thing we need to do tomorrow is to revise our will.

Have a cupcake, then go back to bed, thinking, “Life is Sweet.”

What would you do?
