Here’s What I Would Do with Ten Grand
You know we're giving you a chance to win major cash this month, right? A ridiculous amount of money is up for grabs in November; you've got a chance to win $1,000 twice every weekday AND a shot at TEN GRAND. As in TEN THOUSAND DOLLARS. It could all be yours (get more details here), but sadly, it will never be mine. We employees are ineligible to participate in the contest, but that's not going to stop me from dreaming.
What would I do with $10,000? If we're being 100% real here, it would probably all go to... (cue that sad horn from 'The Price is Right') paying off what's left of my student loans. This, however, is totally not exciting, so let's pretend I don't owe Sallie Mae my soul and we're GOING SHOPPING instead.
Awwwwwwww yeah. If that $10K were in my bank account, I would shop so hard I would make Phyllis Nefler look BASIC. (If you don't know Phyllis Nefler, then I suggest you watch Troop Beverly Hills immediately. Like, NOW.) What would I buy in this epic excursion? Here's where I'd start:
- new laptop
- entire wardrobe for my daughter
- lots of frilly and/or monogrammed things for my daughter
- one of everything in Sephora
- six tons of stuff from Lush
- foot massage
- Michael Kors bag
- 31 MAC lipsticks (one for every day of the month, y'all!)
- maid service for my house
- Pappy Van Winkle
- an OG NES and Super Mario Bros 3
- new bedroom suite
- (at least) 15 different perfumes
If I didn't feel up to my 80's mega-mall shopping haul, I might use the cash to travel. I've always wanted to take one of those Viking River Cruises they advertise before 'Downton Abbey.' I'm too afraid of the open ocean to take a cruise cruise, so a river cruise sounds awesome.
My mom was born on an Air Force base in Tokyo, Japan, and I have always wanted to take her back there. I would hope $10,000 would cover our trip, but who knows? I would probably need to charter a private jet home to take back all the stuff I would buy for my daughter at the Hello Kitty flagship store.
Or maybe natch to all that. Maybe I put it all in a swimming pool like ol' Money Bags in 'Ducktales.'
