I chose "other".  At this time in my life, I would give away all that I have for  one more day of good health.

One more day of being able to walk, talk, just walk around with no baggage to tie me down.

One more day to just gaze at the moon and stars at nite, and walk the mountains and explore the deserts.

At this time in my life, I look at all that I've worked for:  some real estate, cars. career, clothes, jewelry, some recognition, etc, etc. and they don't mean anything  to me.

At this time in my life, I actually wonder why I have collected so many things, when the truth is, I don't need 99% of the things that I have.  Just STUFF that bog me down.

At this time in my life, my whole perspective of life has undergone a total revamp.  If I have to live all over again, no STUFF for me.

Just be FREE!  Life is too short and too precious to waste it collecting stuff.

Yes, definitely, absolutely, no doubt, without question.

    csfb nailed it!

    Still I would sell my patience to those who drive like maniacs. I would sell my 'all you can eat buffet tickets' to the homeless for a penny! I would sell my faith to those who carry fear in their souls. THese things have served me well and with a big jackpot I am sure I could feed myself, re learn patience and my faith is constantly being restored each time I see my grandson learn a new skill or show politeness.

      CSFB...hmmm....rings a bell. Seems you've been on a haitus or is it me?.....lol

      I remember you when I first joined and subsequently thereafter with posts I know I've read.

      I'm sure the lifers here will know who I'm talking about if it isn't this person that I might be getting confused with another.

      Time will tell.

      Anyway, agree with the stuff thingy. Just like the late George carlin said. We need to get more space......WHY?.......Because we have more STUFF ! ! !.....lol

      The one with the most toys wins. ( A bumber sticker I saw here on many cars about 6 or 7 years ago). Florida that is.

        Pac and I are agreeing a lot, maybe there is more to that collider than we thought.

                    This is about letting go........... of the Honda or Toyota.  I never thought that I would be thinking (jackpot or no jackpot) of how to get rid of stuff, I guess the best way would be simply to donate.  In this area we have AMVETS, Melwood, Goodwill, NAMA, The Childrens center, etc. it would be easy, make some calls and be done with it, some even take cars, boats, airplanes, property, no problem.

                          I put "other" because I hardly own anything!
