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 dive in the Great Blue Hole near Belize
and the Great Barrier Reef off the northeastern coast of Australia.
I would hike in Patagonia
and cruise to Antarctica.
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.
