None of the "not go broke" jokes.The rest of us don't know your spending habits.

Mine: Stay away from lousy financial attorneys. .for starters.

    Safe to say, everybody would absolutely go to lottery headquarters.

    My greatest accomplishment is teaching cats about Vienna Sausage. When I need a friend, all I need do is walk outside, pop open a can, and every little critter in the neighborhood drops by to say "Hi!"

            Move?

             

            I don't think there's one thing, but that is one of the things I'd absolutely do. There are definitely other things I know I would absolutely do, but that's the big one.

                I would go down to party city and shop for a nice costume/disguise for the press conference.

                Or I would get some plastic surgery so I could go down and claim my money under my new name.  Michael Jackson.

                  Before or after collecting the money?  Before I'd be just waiting for the check to clear and after....well it would be like someone fired a starter's pistol LOL.....then I'd be in go mode til I decided to stop

                          Hahahahaha. IKR?Stretch

                           

                          Okay, I'm assuming we're not counting all the things we know to do: moving, changing phone numbers, finding a good financial advisor and lawyer etc etc 

                          After all of the givens, what would we do?

                          I'd absolutely have to have some insane, selfish, spend-it-like-I'm-crazy time.Dance Shifty

                          Good for Gloria to be doing her same old-same old and shopping at Walmart. I can revert back to my regular haunts after I go crazy for about a month or 2. Set aside a mil to do any and every  crazy outlandish thing I've ever wanted to do.

                          Because you know what would suck? Not going hog wild & living it up for at least awhile and then keel over from a heart attack or get hit by a bus. 

                          Some of these winners if they dropped dead tomorrow their lives would have been no different than if they hadn't won. What's the point? What a waste.

                          I might wake up early and go running.  I might also wake up and win the lottery.

                          The odds are about the same.

                            You might not realize it but you already listed the things that would truly make you happy.

                            And that's a good thing.
