This question came up in conversation last night. My friend’s answer was to buy a house for his parents, which I found very generous and sweet. At the time, I could not imagine what I would do with money aside from hiring a housekeeper, as I don’t want money. I want time. I think I would buy my parents health insurance. Also, having a chunk of money like that would free me from my student loans which would mean I wouldn’t worry have to worry about playing nice at work. I could have parents petition for things like smaller class sizes and whatnot without caring if I were rehired. I would hire a teacher for piano and for yoga…. Maybe have a sustainable school garden put in for the community.
What would you do if this fantasy of having $1 million dollars became a reality?
