What would I do with eight dollars and seventy five cents? Gosh. I never really thought about it. The mind boggles with the possibilities.
But you know what I would really like? What would really make me…happy. If I could just…dream. And 25c was no object. Just between you and me (because we are being silly). I would buy…. really, cool, blue stretchy gloves. Yay! Those would be hreat(sic). Because they are nice gloves. And even though I am slightly above a medium they have more stretch… if necessary.
$35m is such a done number. Somali pirates were doing it ages ago.
British Post office employees were winning it years ago.
Nintendo blocked that number of dirty Internet sites just a couple of months ago. (lame)
And that number of computer nerds were playing games of killing each other for fun just a couple of weeks ago.
But $8.75. It dribbles off the tongue like 17 and half bags of jet planes. It offends Turkish people like their bench mark interest rate. 8.75 organises one’s activities and use of time like no other.8.75 can split a shit load of logs-ideal personal or professional use. Great. (I thought Amazon only sold books?) Never mind.
I could buy ummm let me think. Oo, I know, a Vintage Royal Albert Daffodil Pattern Trio Set. Classy. For no other reason than the combination of the words daffodil and Albert make me a little giddy.
Just think of the possibilities. Who needs champagne-soaked bus tours, paying off debts or donating to charity? Who needs to become the family favourite by flinging your second cousin a couple of m bangers? You will need none of that, especially if you show up with your single bid of $8.75 on a brand, spanking new, top of the line (in 1978) vivace 200 photocopier. Two words. Photo. Copy.
What would you do?
