I won our office pool on the NCAA tourney.  It’s a long story, but suffice to say it required no knowledge of basketball, merely luck and the ten dollars required to enter.  Today, a co-worker walked by and said, “How’ve you spent your winnings?”  I told him that I haven’t yet – I’ve carried it around as pocket money for a week, but I haven’t yet identified the thing so delightfully frivolous that I simply must spend on it what is essentially found money.

“When you spend my ten dollars,” he said, “Spend it big.  Wave it around in the air and yell, ‘Thank you, (co-worker), for your ten dollars!  I’m having a blast spending it right now!'”

I like that idea.  But I don’t know if I’ll actually do it.
