I play the lottery whenever it gets above $100Million. I put in one buck per hundred mil. Mr B once heard the buzz about a big prize and assumed I was buying tickets. He asked me and I said, "Yes. I bought 3." He handed me $3 and said, "Better buy some more. That much money changes people and we wouldn't want to know which one of us won."
Money does change people; and I would like to think of all the good I might do; but I am certain it would make me an asshole like just about everyone who makes money a priority... I have a friend who is deliberately homeless so that he can be there and provide for his children who still live with his estranged wife... These are great kids, and he is often a hard and demanding father, but he loves them, and is doing well with them... It does not matter how much money I have in my pockets when they leave my house because I can get more... But ultimately, I can do very little for them, except try to help...I wish their mother would be more help, since she wants to drive the father away though he really is good with the kids... I don't want to drop a dime on here, but something should change and then where would the kids be??? I can't afford to house them, though perhaps I could by doing without some luxuries... You see; having little money already means I am a little asshole when to be a human being might require that I turn my heart inside out for them...
