You have just won one million dollars:

1. Who do you call first?

The folks.

2. What is the first thing you buy for yourself?


3. What is the first thing you buy for someone else?

Something for Mom's remodelling, probably, since I doubt she'd let me pay off the mortgage. Or else it would be an old Fairlane for Dad.

4. Do you give any away? If yes, to whom?

To the folks. And some to Father Joe's here in San Diego. He does great work.

5. Do you invest any? If so, how?

Let's see...other than a house...
If I won a million dollars, I'd get 600,000 after federal taxes, and then it'd probably be 566K after state taxes...so there's not really all that much, when you consider it. The house I'd buy would have to be in Indiana, 'cause I wouldn't be able to pay property taxes on a 400K home here in California (and 400K is the median home price now.) So, after taxes, house, and anything for the folks and Father Joe...whatever's left wouldn't last long.
