I won some money in the lottery! Okay, so it's not a million, nor is it a thousand, not even a hundred. But it's a dinner out! Woo hoo!
This really is a first for me. I don't think I have ever won anything in any sort of draw, except when I won a free PTS sampler by breaking a balloon at the gym party.
Now lately, we have been spending a minimal amount each week on the lottery, and have been winning small $$ plus free tickets. Perhaps that was the incentive to keep going. As they say, if you don't play, it don't pay.
A couple from Barrie just won 32 million I think it was. They can retire, and then some. If we won that, I think we'd be on our way south for a long time. Job? What job? Mortgage? What mortgage?
If nothing else, playing the lottery certainly provides an avenue for dreaming, for creating the what-if scenarios. What if we won 5 million...what would we do? My mind reels with the possibilities. I think I'd like to get a pool and a hot tub. I know, I know. I could buy the whole damn street a pool and a hot tub.
And a pool boy. To take care of the pool....and hot tub....and the towels....and the iced tea....*and get your minds out of that gutter*.
*again I dream*
I remember my Auntie Helen used to play Bingo; used to buy lottery tickets. In fact, I recall that she had a lucky streak in her, because she was always winning something. She's probably still playing Heaven's lottery and winning big.
I remember My Sweetie's Aunt Nan expressing that the Jaguar was her vehicle of choice. I would have to agree. That would be on my list.
Perhaps a new sailing vessel. Hmmmmm. Jeanneau? Catalina? Vauquiez?
*again my mind stirs*
Of course I would need to get new workout gear. Heck, I could buy a whole gym and manage it...no wait...pay someone to manage it. An investment, that's the ticket.
Ah "to dream perchance to sleep"
Dream on my little chickens, dream on.
