Fandango’s Provocative Question #190


Welcome once again to Fandango’s Provocative Question. Each week I will pose what I think is a provocative question for your consideration.

By provocative, I don’t mean a question that will cause annoyance or anger. Nor do I mean a question intended to arouse sexual desire or interest.

What I do mean is a question that is likely to get you to think, to be creative, and to provoke a response. Hopefully a positive response.

Last week, someone in California won the $2 billion Powerball jackpot. This person was the lone winner, so he or she gets it all.

Can you imagine winning a $2 billion dollar jackpot? Well, that’s exactly what I’m going to ask you to do. I know you have thought about what you might do with the money if you were to win a huge lottery jackpot. So now’s your chance to put your money where your mouth is, so to speak.

Here is my provocative question for this week. And please be honest in your answer.

You just won a giant lottery jackpot. What are the first three things you’re going to do with the money you won?

If you choose to participate, write a post with your response to the question. Once you are done, tag your post with #FPQ and create a pingback to this post if you are on WordPress. Or you can simply include a link to your post in the comments. But remember to check to confirm that your pingback or your link shows up in the comments.

    Never gonna happen. Might help if I bought a ticket, but hey, if I think of it as if I’ve saved all that money that I would’ve spent on ’em, my vet bills would be nothing. That’s good enough for me.

      I don’t buy lottery tickets either. The odds of winning the big jackpot are minuscule.

        I don’t buy tickets, either. But one, once-in-a-while, wouldn’t be bad.

    This was easy because I’ve been planning that lottery win for many long and dreamy years.

      Me too. I ought to buy a lottery ticket or two, though, if I want any chance of having my dream come true.

        I haven’t bought a lottery ticket in years. Probably that would be step one in the win-lose thing.

    Refinish and rearrange the master bathroom, snip-snap, with the best interior decorator/designer I could find and include added lights and refinishing for the ceiling below

    Landscape the side yard while re-doing a piece of decking in the back and turning another piece into a 3-season porch and adding an all-season swimming pool spa at the back corner

    Visit my middle son in New Zealand… and, perhaps, fund a wedding (here or there) or (and) treat everybody (in the “immediate” family) to a bit of travel together

    I don’t buy lottery tickets. But if ever such a situation happened,
    1. Make sure all my three children are comfortably set in their own homes and some cushion for emergency.
    2. Put aside some money for ourselves, a monthly income scheme etc
    3. Help relatives who need it and then donate the rest in different charities.

    First off I would like to set myself up with new living quarters. Ideally buy out the neighbors on either side of me and tear it all down and start from scratch. I would then talk to a financial advisor about investments that would pay me back a good amount. And give some of my winnings to my family that has always been there for me.
