Like half of New York state (the gullible half?) a coworker and I went in on some Mega Millions tickets last week.  Even during that brief period of imagining what one would do with that wealth, though, I wasn’t very good at spending it: I said rather lamely that I supposed I’d spring for the extra leg-room on my JetBlue flight home, and thought that it would be fun to help some of my friends out with rent.  But I actually think I wouldn’t be great at unimaginable riches - and as El. reminded me, everyone’s lives get ruined anyway. (Well, the ones you hear about.) 
People who had no problem being rich? The Paleys.  Check out this spread on their apartment in the WSJ Styles section. It’s really something. As Max Bialystock said, “if you’ve got it, flaunt it!”
