Daily Prompt: Gone with the Windfall
You just inherited $1,000,000 from an aunt you didn’t know existed. What’s the first thing you buy (or otherwise use the money for)?
Would buy my spot under the sun.
What is it?
I would divide the money for charity, my children, and myself.
Let it come first. No use thinking about such a windfall.
It’s just like the proverbial Mullah Naseeruddin. He milks a cow. Off he goes to the market to sell the milk. He carries it in a container over his head.
He thinks big dreams. With money from the selling of milk, he will buy hens. With the hatching of their eggs, he will have more hens, and so on.
A time will come when he will amass a fortune. He will buy a house, and get married. His wife will ask for something. He will vehemently say no with the shake of his head.
He forgets the container, and the milk spills over. All the milk is wasted. Mullah sits in the dust, and wails over it.
I will wait for the money, till it comes.
I don’t have to dream.
