What’s The First Self Indulgent Purchase You’d Make If You Hit the Mega Millions Jackpot
If you have the luck of the Irish on St Patrick's Day and hit the $400 million Mega Millions jackpot, what would be the first self indulgence purchase you'd make? Most people would pay off their bills, buy a house, give money to family and charity, but I'm talking about privileges only lots and lots money can buy.
Here's my Top 5 self indulgences:
Travel With Guide
I've always wanted to see Australia, the Mediterranean, New Zealand and other exotic parts of the world. I'd pay to have Keith Urban be my tour guide. His wife won't mind, will she? Who better to show you around Australia than Keith Urban.
Since I love to golf, I'd set up a round with Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Jack Nicklaus on the Legends Golf course in South Africa, home to the longest par 3 in the world that's over 1400 feet below.
House With Pool Boy
Everyone with money needs a really big house, somewhere warm, with a pool, so I could hire a pool boy. I wonder what Dolvett Quince's price from the Biggest Loser would be. He could even carry me around with those muscles.
I'd throw a lavish party and invite Hollywood celebrities like George Clooney, Matt Damon, Matthew McConaughey, Bradley Cooper, Brad Pitt, Julia Roberts, Ellen DeGeneres and Sandra Bullock so we can take our own selfie.
Poker With Pros
I'd hire Phil Ivey, Daniel Negreanu, Doyle Brunson and Jennifer Harman to teach me how to play Texas Hold 'Em poker professionally.
Some of your best self indulgent purchases are:
If you hit the Mega Millions jackpot, you'd only end up with $224.8 million after taxes. That's still a nice chunk of change. The odds of winning are 1 in 259 million but if you buy your tickets today on St Patrick's Day, you're luck may improve.
Mega Millions tickets will be sold until Tuesday March 18th 10:45pm. The drawing will be held at 11pm ET.
