Welcome to another Secret Subject Swap. This week, 13 brave bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts.
Here are links to all the sites now featuring Secret Subject swap posts. Sit back, grab a cup, and check them all out. See you there:

My subject is: If you inherited a large sum of money, and it was stipulated that you were forced to spend $1 Million solely on yourself before you could spend the rest however you wanted (ie: give away, share, etc), what would your most indulgent purchase be and why? It was submitted by: Come Play in the Kitchen.
Although I’m sure people would think that I’d need some time to figure out how I’d spend my million dollars, that’s not the case. And although my purchase may be seen as indulgent by some, it’s self-preservation in my mind. Potato. . . Potaaaaato.
I am buying an Island. I may have already picked one out. It might be in the Florida Keys, but if I disclose the location I’m just going to have to spend more of that money searching for a scientific way to wipe the information from your memory. So I’ll spare us both that. You’re welcome.
I will make all laws. And I will enforce them. So despite what Bob Marley and Eric Clapton say, no one will be shooting the Sheriff (hear that, sons?)
I will be determining all holidays and celebrations. There will be Cookie Day, Cake Day, Pie Day, Cupcake Day, Donut Day and any other (to-be-determined) day of my choosing. And EVERY day is officially NOT my birthday. I’m just too old for that crap.

I’ll be determining the weather. Each day I’ll choose from sunny, sunnier and sunniest. We’ll need rain, so sometimes I’ll allow it at night.
Shoes are banned.
I will even pick which bugs will be allowed there. Midwest bitey bugs (wolves in sheep’s clothing) that look exactly like innocent Lady Bugs and you don’t realize that they aren’t until they bite you – Banished from my kingdom.
I will approve all visitors. Please fill out all forms; attach 3 proofs of identity, a current picture, a litter of recommendation, a recipe, 3 recent humorous tweets, a birth certificate, and a partridge in a pear tree. You can do the Hokey Pokey and turn yourself around, but I’m not so easily bribed. At this point, it appears that there’s a one year waiting list. I’ll let you know.
Not that I’ve given this scenario any previous thought or anything . . .
