Tell Me a Tale in 120 Words: a Billion Dollars

The first Thursday of each month brings TMAT 120 from Joelle at Two on a Rant. Anyone can participate – even if you don’t have a blog – by writing your response in the comment section of her post. This is the third time I have attempted to tell a tale in 120 words or less (it’s harder than it seems). To read my first two short, short tales, click here and here. This month’s prompt is “If you had a billion dollars, how would you use it?

My problem with this challenge is that each month I always read Joelle’s response before writing my own. Hers is so good and so funny, that I cannot think of anything else to say on the topic. Well…. here goes!

If I had $1,000,000,000, I would spend the first weeks researching exotic travel locations. Then I would travel to extravagant destinations for extended stays. There would be no camping involved in my trips.

I would hikeEl Camino de Santiago in Spain,

find lemurs in Madagascar,

swim in the turquoise waters of French Polynesia,

and visit the temple at Angkor Wat in Cambodia.

I would bring my family along, and maybe some friends too (sometimes).

Or maybe I would give it all to charity.

Some to charity.

A little to charity.
