I'd be rich, you ignorant plebs! I could do whatever I want!
I wouldn't try if I were you. From my old job I know that $500 in quarters is about 25 pounds. Yeah, you made his day by giving him $10,000, but you now force him to carry 500 pounds of coins.

Hey, I'm giving him $10,000. He can get his lazy bum self down to the hardware store and buy a wheelbarrow or 10. Or maybe I'll put his 500 pound fortune in a big crate that says "pursuit of wealth" and chain him to it, to stand as a metaphor for for greed or something!

Maybe I'll just keep the money and buy myself an unhealthy supply of doritos to consume while I watch cartoons until I die of a dorito overdose.

I sometime think I have a minor anxiety issue.

I don’t usually have issues FALLING asleep. My issues come from waking up at 3 in the morning and then not being able to get BACK to sleep. Because I worry about work, or money, or not being awesome...

And when that happens, I have found a way to distract my brain. And this is exactly how.

I imagine I've won the lottery. And with that money I want to buy a ranch somewhere in central Texas and build a 1:1 scale model of Serenity from Firefly. I'm not joking. I walk myself through the entire thing. I imagine either entering through the cargo bay, or the roof hatch. And the layout, etc... What minutia should be here or there... That sort of thing. And I'll give free tours. Puts me back into a nice slumber...

Because I'm sure that's the only way I'll be able to make out with my celebrity crush...

Some days I can't sleep. It's those days I find myself thinking about Nathan Fillion's butt when he was stranded in the desert.
