$1 Billion? Only to be spent on things that start with K? That sounds pretty krazy.*
K is for Kindness
Technically, I’m not “buying” anything here, but let’s say I’m buying the world a little education, humanitarian aide, equality, and some more time to live
$50 million to Planned Parenthood
$50 million to World Wildlife Fund
$50 million to Egale Canada
$50 million to UNICEF
K is for Knowledge
I’m setting aside $200,000 for my university education. Unless I want to attend an Ivy League school, that should be enough.
K is for midlife Krisis*
$200 million is going into a savings account, where it will be invested responsibly.
This money will cover my retirement plan
This money will cover my insurance
This money will cover my completely unexpected midlife krisis,* what with my sudden urges to travel the world, buy trendy hipster merchandise, shower the homeless in McDonald’s gift cards, quit my job to become a freelance artist, etc.
Now that my parents have stopped dictating my answer, this leaves me with some leftover money to blissfully splurge on consumerism-driven impulse purchases. I’m getting:
The Vatican. Not the staff, which can continue to do as they wish. But think of all those art works!
Vanilla. I’d lay in a lifetime’s supply. You can never have too much.
Villas. I’d buy one in Europe somewhere and one in Southeast Asia.
Vipers. Pits of vipers can protect my villas. Who needs a moat when you can scare intruders off with venomous snakes?
Have I run out of money yet? If not, I’ll buy vino. By the vat. Some of you might think I should buy vodka, but I don't like drink.
