Dare to dream? Apparently not around here.

So yesterday in the office, a few of us, including the big boss, got to be talking about how Steve Jobs' widow is now worth like eleven BILLION dollars. With a "B". (And she's not bad looking, either.)

Well eventually we started talking about what we'd do with $11,000,000,000.

One guy says that he'd retire and move to Vegas...and buy a casino.
The boss says that he and the wife would be living in the Bahamas on their own private island.

Then they looked at me, because I was already smiling.

"With eleven billion dollars, I could hire a mercenary army and take over half of Europe," I said. "And then after I consolidated my empire, I'd take over the other half!"

The boss shook his head. "Why you always gotta be extreme like that?"

Sheesh. Since when is having a little ambition so wrong?

Anyway, I've got to finish my letter to ex-Mrs. Jobs now before the boss comes back from lunch. (Hey, it could happen, right?)


  1. LOL, if you're not dreaming big, you're not dreaming...

  2. Europe? French live there.

    1. Yeah, I figure we can capture them on the first day, before lunch.

    2. I think they just surrendered. You better hurry and prepare for your march down the Champs-Élysées.

  3. With 11 billion you could have all the USA..just saying

  4. Sounds like a plan to me.

  5. Don't forget to include "must love dogs" in the letter.
