I COULD buy a horse

“We urge watchers to check their pockets,” Midlands today is saying. “You only have a week to claim your winnings.”

“They’re making me worried it’s me who won,” I say to MindReader.

“Well, it was bought in Ladywood. Have you ever been there?”

“No.”

“Twelve million,” MindReader says.

“Don’t,” I say. Winning the lottery would be one of my very worst nightmares. Nothing to strive for, nothing to earn. I would absolutely self destruct. “Even I couldn’t spend that.”

“You could,” MindReader says with a smile. “MindReader, I’ve spent it. But they said it is a really good horse…”

  1. If I won the Lotto (and I don’t buy tickets so I do appreciate it’s really not going to happen), I would be able to just take whatever job I wanted to amuse and fulfill me and I would like that. It might even be volunteering. I wouldn’t buy a horse. I would buy a house. A lovely house.

    I fully disagree with that! It would be lovely, so lovely. I could then go off and do what I really wanted to do in life, anytime I wanted, anything I wanted, without being beholden to the system in order to support myself and my family, to keep a roof over my head, and to rid myself forever of the worry of money which causes me no end of anxiety and heartburn.

    It’s a wonderful and totally fantastical idea. But it’s fun to entertain.
