  • Yes.
    Now let me explain why...
    I had a procedure done over a 6 or 7 month period during 2006 that caused me to lose 10+ years of my memory from that time back...just wiped it out. So, in a sense, I lost those 10+ years and due to my ongoing memory problems, I have short-term memory loss, too. I've been sitting here for quite awhile trying to think of words and the year because my brain blacks out and I can't remember. Like having a word on the tip of your tongue sort of thing.
    So, if I could collect my $25 million now, I would be most appreciative. Or give me back my memory instead, if you can. :)

  • maybe- I mean I';m overweight and out of shape- if I got 25 mill- I could definitely join a gym and pay for belly dancing classes and get healthy meaning I would win back some time ;)

  • I would. I'm not raising babies anymore (our son will graduate in 3 years) and won't be having any more, so that isn't an issue. With 25 million, DH & I could spend some serious quality time together, something we really haven't been able to do since we had our son. With 25 million, our son's special needs trust would be financially flush and we would be able to arrange for a BlueRoof Technologies home for him, too. He would be able to have a modicum of independence and we wouldn't have to worry about his future without us to take care of him. For us it's a total win-win.
