Before Christmas, I was at a dinner with a number of women who attend the same gym. I arrived a few minutes late because I had to return home to pick up a gift which I had forgotten for an exchange. I spied Santa Claus and decided to get a photo. After all, how often do we get our picture with Santa anymore? I think he was the real one too.
When the numbers were read aloud, I thought I had missed winning by one digit. Then I viewed my other tickets. I won! Hurrayyyyy....half the draw amounted to $120. I paid for my dinner and martini, received a gift of a bottle of wine, and left with money in my pocket.
While going on a shopping trip with a relative recently, we filled out ballots for a draw at a jewelry store. The prize was a Swarovski crystal necklace and earrings with a platinum over gold chain. It was red and not the most attractive set I'd ever seen. I didn't care whether or not I won. Nonetheless, I received a call Christmas eve and told to come pick up my prize. Eventually, I did. It looks like this.
Good fortune, just like bad is supposed to come in threes. Can winning the lottery be far behind?
