If I Had a Million Dollars

If I had a million dollars, I'd buy you a house.  If I had a million dollars,  I'd buy you furniture for your house... Maybe a nice Chesterfield or an Ottoman. I'd buy you a K-Car, a nice reliant automobile.I'd build a treefort in our yard, you could help it wouldn't be that hard. Maybe we could put a refrigerator in there.  Wouldn't that be fabulous! I buy you a fur coat( but not a real fur coat that's cruel).  I'd buy you an exotic pet(like a llama or an emu).  I'd but you John Merick's remains (All them crazy elephant bones). We wouldn't have to walk to the store; we'd take a limousine cause it costs more. We wouldn't have to eat Kraft dinner. I'd buy you a green dress (but not a real green dress that's cruel). I'd buy you some art ( A Picasso or a Garfunkel).  I'd buy you a monkey (haven't you always wanted a monkey?) 

If I had a 1,000,000 I'd be RICH.

That was a paragraph full of lyrics from the song "If I Had a Million Dollars" by the Barenaked Ladies.  It's a beautiful song, huh?

But no really, I would do all the same things.  I would buy a house (maybe not a million dollar house, but nice one) and then buy a functional car.  I would save some for MY college education, as well my future children's education.  That's pretty much it... maybe ONE shopping spree day or something, I don't know.  I don't have much reason to have so much money - I would get the things I've always wanted and needed first and whatever left over I have I'll put in my savings or something.  I might have that extra money for traveling... OH WAIT! YES! I WOULD TRAVEL.  I'd actually have the money to go to places I've always wanted to go to and buy the foreign shit I've always wanted. AGGHH, yes! I would travel.  I would buy a decent house, a new car, and travel! The college education stuff of course, but I can't just GIVE money to my kids... they're going to have to learn to work too, you know?

"ADVENTURE TIME." Life is always one huge adventure.  All the small things? They're what make the adventure interesting.  The ups and downs are what makes the adventure... adventurous.   Even though people imagine adventures as long journeys through turmoil and hikes and climbs through the mountains of Mordor, adventures can be much simpler.  An adventure could be going to the grocery store at 1am and riding on the shopping carts.  An adventure could be going through the boonies to find something interesting - whether it's a gold chalice or a puppy dog - and coming out of it completely unscathed.  Life is one huge adventure, because you test yourself by doing fun activities - by challenging yourself into doing things you normally wouldn't do.  Not necessarily extremely challenging or scary feats, but things you normally don't do.
