Was my commuter buddy’s question to me this morning.
Out of the blue – not sure why he asked it – but he did.
I thought about it for a moment and then said “Well I guess I would be helping out somebody – I think children – and my family and friends. I am not sure how, but I would want to help people.”
In hindsight I should have asked him “How long would I have had the money?” If I had just acquired it - I would probably need to spend the first year or so buying a new house, going out socially with family and friends; and, of course, working out with a personal trainer everyday to combat the newfound social eating frenzy. Then once I got buff from working out, I would have to buy new clothes and with new clothes comes new baubles to accessorize them with and the list goes on and on.
So my initial answer to him was unselfish – but my further-thought-out-answer is insanely selfish (at least for the first year or so.)
Not to worry though - I don’t see totally selfish in my future at all.
