What I Would Buy If I Won An Extra $10,000
Just Imagine, Wow! I just won $10,000 and my imagination goes wild with all the things I want. Then the sensible subconscious Rudy pops up and says, “Is it what you want or what you need Rudy?” Oh heck, lets go for wants because the needs will always be there. I really want a new 3/4 ton diesel truck and ten thousand dollars will make a decent down payment. How about some real nice rifles .308, .338 Lapua and a 7mm magnum those are the calibers and I’d like the .308 left-hand AR-10, a .338 Lapua left-handed Weatherby or Remington-custom sniper-rifle and a left-handed 7mm bolt-action with a fluted barrel and enough ammo to spend a week at the range. I’ve been wanting a metal building out behind the house, since the house I have doesn’t have so much as a garage. I’d like that, a two or three car metal shop building to do fixer-up projects like build more game tables and picnic tables that some of the charities I work with use for fund raising. But after much thought, I bring myself back to reality with this question, what is it you really want that ten thousand can buy you Rudy?
What I’ve really wanted for 21 years and have not been able to get it because finances weren’t right or I got too busy doing radio and the price of concrete is sky high or I’ve saved up the money but something else came up and the kids needed the money or something needed fixing. What I want is a driveway. Plain and simple my driveway in good ole Americana concrete. I’ve wanted to get my old gravel driveway concreted for years and if I won $10,000 that would be for sure what I would get. I can just imagine my little girl rollerskating with all my grandchildren riding their tricycles on my new concrete driveway. I can just see my son out there washing and waxing his car. Oh, the things I could do with ten thousand dollars. So when ever that sounder for the Kean Cash Contest plays on the radio, I immediately start imagining how $10,000 cash will change my life.
Even if I won one thousand dollars I’d find a way to make one of my wants happen, like a new Weatherby, Remington, Savage or AR-10. How about you what would you do if you won one thousand dollars? what would you do if you won $10,000?
