While recently daydreaming (READ: avoiding work) I discovered the high-end market of vacations. Apparently I am hanging out in the wrong circles.
For 1.5 million dollars, I can join my care-free friends aboard a ship called the Silver Whisper for a 28 day cruise which starts with helicopter pick up at my home. I am sure there is a heliport around here somewhere at my 600 square foot cottage. I just haven’t searched hard enough. Perhaps it is on the roof.
After much contemplation on spending 1.5 million dollars for a month of avoiding alcoholism, sunburn, and pirates, I have researched just what else I could do with that cool 1.5. Using my Bush-like fuzzy math, I have concluded I could:
- Continue to live in my cottage for 64 more years. Right now my lease is up when steady good weather arrives and people with money can afford to live here.
- According to some, retire in 5 years, at 55. The stipulation: Don’t invest in a risky portfolio or do invest in a risky life.
- Purchase a 10th of the Jackson Pollock painting No. 5, 1948. Basically 15 square inches of scribbled beauty.
Maybe I should just get back to work, down here in the trenches where I belong. But first, a quick check up on my roof…I think I hear rotors approaching!
What would 1.5 mil buy you?
