Like a hundred years ago the Barenaked Ladies song "If I Had $1000000" was a huge hit. It featured such madcap lyrics as:

"If I had $1000000 we wouldn't have to walk to the store
If I had $1000000 we'd take a limousine cause it costs more
If I had $1000000 we wouldn't have to eat Kraft dinner.
(but we would!)

If I had $1000000 (if I had $1000000)
I'd buy you a green dress (but not a real green dress, that's cruel)
If I had $1000000 (if I had $1000000)
I'd buy you some art (a Picasso or a Garfunkel)
If I had $1000000 (if I had $1000000)
I'd buy you a monkey (haven't you always wanted a monkey?!)
If I had $1000000 I'd buy your love"

And it still, to this day, begs the question of what you'd buy if you had a million dollars. Not practically speaking. Not as in planning for your retirement and investing and giving to charities and responsible PC crap like that. I mean if you had a million dollars in hand, right now, no strings attached, with only the instruction to spend it madly... what would you buy?

A million dollars doesn't go as far as it used to but in my imagination I'd be able to afford my own Addams Family mansion (complete with Addams Family pinball machine and graveyard, naturally), the A-Team van, a working carousel with tigers instead of horses, and some Edward Scissorhands-styled hedges. To start. Then I'd start planning something really spectacular.
