When I’m Rich

Fireplace.jpg – I will have an apartment with a fireplace (although I had one once, when I was poor).

– A really great camera.

– A vacation (it’s been decades).

– A new super duper Mac, and an iphone (actually, I don’t really lust for an iphone so much, but if I’m rich, what the hell).

– Really great speakers (this should have come at the top of the list).

– A kayak.

Okay, I’m already bored. This is part of the reason why I’m not rich. I don’t really enjoy this game more than a few seconds.

Today I’m going to read through my book one more time, but I think I might be done. I’m very excited. I think this one might be the one. I always think this, though. In the end, when all is said and done, I’m very much the optimist. I mean, I know that chances are things will crash and burn horribly, and not just crash and burn, but somehow this book will turn around and kick my ass, stomping on me and laughing maniacally the whole time, but then again, you never know.
