If you won the lottery would you keep working? What's the first thing you'd buy?

Well it depended on how much the lottery was for. I don't think I would stop working completely, but I would find a different job. Something that I really liked and I only had to work a few hours a week. The first thing I would do would be to pay off my mortgage. I don't know what I would buy. I would probably spend it on a vacation before I actually bought anything. Maybe new clothes for my vacation. I would give a lot of it to my family. And just place the rest in the bank and live off it. I"m not one for fancy material things, so I would rather just live.

oh,what a coincidence!that's just what i daydreamed on the bus today when i went back from company.lol.i was so crazy -and what a damn daydream-that i even didn't want to go off bus.i don't know why i had done this,maybe i was so frustrated with my work,and was so eager to get rid of this. i dreamed that i had won a lottery of $500m.the first thing i want to do is touring round the whole world.so many places attract me so much.Vancouver,Singapore,new york ,Paris...countless.i am not sure how much that would cost me,but i am sure i won't care as long as it'ohs less than $500m. one other thing i am sure that i will do is keep working-u mentioned but i'd like to start a business of my own,do not work for others any more,u know it's so tired to work for others.no matter how hard we wook,we can just make a slice of the firm's profit.so if it is possible,i would rather run a company,maybe a software one.actually speaking,i am a outdoor of such a business,but why i'd like to.because now i found that lots of people can't afford to buy some softwares for the high prices.i am the one of them.so if i had a software company i would down the price of the softwares that most people can afford them.in addition,if this succeeded,the pirate would also be eliminated. annnnnnnnnnnnd,stop!stop daydreaming again.lol,andway,wish the dream come ture!
