I just had lunch with an excoworker. Seems he went to one of the local casinos over the weekend, hit a jackpot, and came home with something like $10,000 after taxes.
He's putting most of it towards a down payment on a house, which is good. I was thinking about what I might spend it on, and a new gas range, new counter tops, remodelling, landscaping... all sorts of things around the house that I could put that money towards.
I guess that's a sign that I'm getting older - I have a hard time thinking of something really decadent and fun to spend it on. Just as well, I suppose.
