If you came into a large amount of money, what would you do with it?

I came up empty for inspiration so I turned to a random subject generator.

When you look at the prompt you have to wonder if the effort was worth it.

I would buy a Ford Mustang. Probably a red one but maybe yellow or gunmetal. Then I’d plant a forest to allow for the emissions. After that I suppose I’d better buy an electric car and show some maturity.

Then I’d buy a house near the coast.Or build one. Building one might be better as I could have all the bits and pieces I’d always wanted – a secure hobby room, a fridge with locks on,  a bike shed (I’ll be needing some exercise) and servants’ quarters. Well, I’m not going to be doing my own housework if I’ve got money, am I?

Perhaps I would donate some money to charity.  It will make me seem less shallow and more compassionate.

I’d also like to go deep sea fishing off Florida. I saw a programme about that once and it looked fun.

That’s about it. I’m currently shallow and boring. With money I’ll be shallow and boring and rich. It hardly seems worth the bother.

 

Things I Think About in the Car (Part 2)

Seventeen – Test Cricket, paint drying, beard growing. Rank them in order of thrill.

Eighteen – would spreading a baseball game over five days improve it?

Nineteen – World Series. USA and Canada. Really?

Twenty – that bus was close.

Twenty One – I hate this junction.

Twenty Two – oh look, the rugby club.

Twenty Three – we had some good times there.

Twenty Four –  I wonder if I will ever have grandchildren?

Twenty Five – I wonder if they will play rugby?

Twenty Six – where does all this traffic come from?

Twenty Seven – why did he just do that?

Twenty Eight – how many people realise D H Lawrence’s parents got married there? You’d have thought they married in Eastwood. How many people have heard of D H Lawrence these days?

Twenty Nine – will there ever be a TV quiz question on Nottingham’s links to the von Richthofen family? I could answer that.

Thirty – I wonder what Kylie Minogue is doing these days.

Thirty One – why did I buy a house so near so many schools?

Thirty two – why do parents park dangerously when dropping kids at school? If you want them run over why not just make them walk and save yourself a job every morning?

Thirty three – I wonder if any of these parents have ever had the school ring them to tell them they just dropped their kid off on a training day?

Thirty four – if I am going to blog my thoughts, should I leave that one out because it makes me look like a bad parent?

Thirty five – nearly there now.

Thirty six – why do women say “What are you planning on doing today?” when they really mean “I have a list of jobs for you.”?

Thirty seven – I wonder if I’ll get away with blogging this garbage? Maybe I should re-write it with deeper thoughts.

Thirty eight – I’ll put “stream of consciousness” in the Tags. That should do it.
