You know how sometimes you just Feel Lucky?
I had one of those days recently.
I received an expense check from a company that I freelanced for several years ago.
The check came to me out of the clear blue sky.
It wasn’t for a ton of money – which is why I hadn’t realized that I had never previously received it.
But, it was a check – made out to me – arriving out of the clear blue sky!
It was clearly My Lucky Day.
I went directly to the bank.
I cashed that check.
Then, I went directly to my local bodega.
The one that sells Lottery Tickets.
I bought 4 “Mega Millions” tickets and 20 “Loose Change” scratch-and-win tickets.
I thought that the “Loose Change” tickets would be especially lucky for me, as I like to save loose change.
A few years ago I cashed in this loose change:
But that’s another story for another day.
Today I’m talking BIG SCORE.
So, I hunkered down with my Special, Lucky Penny.
(Not really. I don’t really have a Special, Lucky Penny.)
I hunkered down with a penny and my 20 scratch-and-win tickets.
I started scratching.
I scratched my first ticket.
Not a win, but I’m still feeling incredibly Lucky. I scratch my second ticket.
Well, not this one, either.
My third ticket.
Well, even though I photographed each and every one of those 20 tickets, and I know that you are riveted and sitting on the very edge of your seat, I will not post every single photo.
Let’s suffice it to say that I won 9 dollars on the scratch-and-win tickets.
Okay. BUT, I still had my 4 Mega Millions tickets! Tomorrow I could be 75 MILLION DOLLARS RICHER.
We, I mean. WE could be richer.
I woke up on Saturday and checked the Mega Millions website.
Then I told Hubby not to quit his day job.
I still have my winning tickets worth 9 smackeroos!
What would you do? Cash them in for the Big Bucks? Or get 9 more tickets?
Eager for the vote on this one…
