Daily Prompt – Upturned Noses

Feb 6: Pet Perspective

Daily Prompt: You’re a Winner!

You’ve just won $1 billion dollars in the local lottery. You do not have to pay tax on your winnings. How will you spend the money?

I would also invest in creating an amazing architecturally artistic house…

…you get the drift.

I would also donate a large chunk of it to various charities, and perhaps some performing arts projects.

I actually don’t know what else I would do with it. I’d also make sure that Hulk and I are completely debt free.

Oh, and I’d buy a French Bulldog, because they are so adorable.
