Id show T-Pain whats up by getting a A REAL BIG ASS CHAIN
This is a fun little excercise, I think its fun to day dream what you would do.
1) As soon as I found out Id won I would try and not tell anyone. Of course Ill have to tell someone, but Im a little too modest to brag. oh and work the next day...not happening.
2) Cash in my ticket, refuse to do any interviews or get the big check or wahtever. Im in LA so Im pretty anonomymous as is, so that helps.
3) Book an open ended trip to somewhere like tahiti or somewhere ultra secluded like that in the south pacific. Take up to a month for the excitement to die down, get my shit in check and figure out what to do next.
4) Come back to the states. Find a good lawyer and financial advisor. Get myself a condo in LA.
5) Go back home. Pay off mama's house, get my sister and brother a place to live and pay off their debts - one time only deal though. Dont want moochers. And take all my family and friends out for dinner and get them all a nice little present or something.
6) Open ended travel around the world, being anonymous but not having a material worry in the world.
7) When that gets boring after a year or two I can come back to LA and be just another anonymous dude who has a nice place to live and nice cars, but not many people will know why. Its when you live in the small town and "not change a thing" that you get in trouble.
The only downside is all my friends will stilll be working stiffs, so you cant just take them along. And I dont want them to use me for a free ride.
