I found my lottery ticket, which was missing since Friday when they drew the BIG ONE, $290 million..!!! This ticket was given to my husband, from a man to thank him for being so nice. Doesn't this read like a story in the paper, when a do- gooder[ Bruce] wins the mother lode? I think it does
So they pull the numbers, and I can't find the ticket. No one comes forward to claim it, so, it could me, right? I think so ! So I look, here and there, no luck..and I looked longingly at the garbage, as it was picked up Wednesday morn..Could it be there?
Well, there is still no one coming forward, its Thursday afternoon..well, that still could mean that I won, maybe not THE BIG ONE, but something !! Don't you think? Well I do!!
So I am looking for something in my magazine rack, and lo and behold, there it was..clinging to the side of a magazine.I casually pick it up, and DON'T scream..I had torn the numbers from the paper, to check , now where was the paper !! Oy vey!!
So now, I grab a pen, to circle all my numbers I just know I have..you all know it too, don't you !! Well... I type this, crestfallen, saying I had nada, bupkis, zero, zilch.
How sad I look right now. But for one brief, and very shining moment, I had the feeling I was the winner..Now, to the strains of Whatta Feeling"" I say to all you who read this post, YOU would have won, right along with me, because I would have given, EACH & EVERY, one of you, a free cruise..NOW NOW,No thankyou's needed, it would have been my pleasure, but now, I must leave..to go sob quietly
Trip, with her book & tea!
