If I had a million dollars I would buy a custom built house bus, paint it black and blues, hire my daughters a weirdo tutor genius, get a couple of dogs, and travel long roads with my band for as long as we could stand at a time.
We wouldn’t play shows every night, no. We’d play maybe 3 or four shows some weeks, and other weeks we wouldn’t play at all. We’d discover the land. We’d take the back roads, and stop at every swamp attraction we could. We’d visit museums. Eat ice cream. Wander cemeteries. Stare out across mountain valleys, and shout to the other side. Some days we’d all get separate hotel rooms and unwind in Marriott beds and pools. I’d spoil my children with attention.
If I had a million dollars I would take my Mama on a trip to Europe, I would take her anywhere she wanted to go. She could come on the bus, she could have the biggest bed.
If I had a million dollars, I’d invest in renewable energy and tear free baby shampoo.
I won’t ever have a million dollars, though, likely. So, I will go to bed, and live my normal life tomorrow. Dreams are never drab.
Monday is forty-four minutes away.
What would you do with a million dollars?
