Five Ways to Blow 10 Thousand Dollars
I’m throwing caution to the wind here, say I’ve got an extra ten thousand dollars just burning a hole in my pocket. I could do what a sane minded person would do and say, pay bills, invest it, put it in savings maybe even donate it to one of my favorite charities. But all those are, boring! I want to live a little, have some fun, take risks after all you can’t win if you don’t play right? Here are my top five ideas for blowing $10,000.
Buy Ten Thousand Lottery Tickets
I could do like Washington Wizards forward Chris Singleton did this time last year when the Mega Millions lottery was up to 500 million dollars. Singleton bought ten thousand lottery tickets. He didn't win the 500 Million dollars, however he did have some winning tickets. Chris never said whether he made his money back or not. He did tell reporters "it was a good investment that didn't pan out." What's the Lottery jackpot up to now?
A Trip to Las Vegas and One Hamburger
Lets Fly to Las Vegas and split a hamburger, price tag $5,000 per burger at the Fleur de Lys restaurant in the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. Round trip airfare (On American Airlines) for two from Abilene is $1,000, overnight hotel accommodations at the Mandalay Bay plus ground transportation $1,000. Leaving $3,000 for the one armed bandits.
The $5,000 burger is really special because it's made with 100% Kobe beef imported from Japan then topped with a slab of foie gras, black truffle, and truffle sauce served on a brioche truffle bun. But that's not all, in order to consume a $5,000 burger Chef Keller throws in a bottle of Chateau Petrus 1995 which normally retails for around $5,000.
Total trip cost just under under $10,000.
Take up to 25 Family and Friends on a Cruise
I did the math for the "Rudy Cruise" and at $801 per person that gets 12 family and friends on a seven day cruise Sept 8th-15th 2013. If seven days is too much time to spend with 12 of your BFF's, how about spending only five days with 25 of our BFF's? A cruise to Cozumel and Progreso on the Triumph Sept. the 12th-16th, 2013 is only $399 a person. Of course the alcohol, souvenirs and commemorative matching BFF tattoos are not included in the price.
Buy a New Smile
I've often heard that people with good teeth and a winning smile tend to make more money. That said I'm wanting a new smile and at my dentists current prices of $1,200.00 per tooth for porcelain caps, I'll have to pick my favorite eight teeth I want capped. Afterwards, I should have just enough money left over to buy some roasted corn on the cob at the West Texas Fair and Rodeo.
Finding Lady Luck at the Craps Table
It's high time we checked in with lady luck to see if she is even speaking to me. If lady luck is on my side I say we lay down a one time go for the gusto $10,000.00 dollar bet. I could make a night of it and put down ten one thousand dollar bets, or 20 $500.00 bets. Nonetheless, It's time I hit the casino's in Oklahoma in search of Lady Luck and her sisters Fun and Crazy. Besides the last time I was at the Winstar, they kept giving me the free seniors all-you-can eat buffet.
