Jackpot !

THERE IS THAT MOMENT, WHEN
SITTING AT MY COMPUTER IN THE
WEE HOURS OF EARLY DAWN,
I AM POISED TO CLICK
ON THE ICON FOR "NEW YORK
STATE MEGA MILLIONS". TO
CHECK AND SEE IF OVERNIGHT
I'VE BECOME BATHED IN WEALTH
BEYOND EVEN MY DREAMS. TO
wonder FOR A SPLIT SECOND if any
deals with angels or imps will
FINALLY bear fruit.
x
Deeply held values, not far from my consciousness,
flee for a second, as I see myself entering my Rolls,
paparazzi in pursuit. Never for a moment will I forget
my humble roots.
x
Anyway, CLICK!
x
Someone else won $212,000,000. One person,
from, for God's sake, New Jersey! Not even NY.
I am shrunk to size once more. I'm waiting to hear
the latest winner promise not to change, as I know
I surely would. If you can't flaunt it on the red
carpet...only kidding...you guys know how spiritual
I really am.
x
Friday's drawing, ONLY $12,000,000. I think I'll
wait a couple of weeks, till the pot becomes
"enriched", then try again.

xxxxxxxxxA fun opportunity to
join in the adventure aboard the
Orient Express, leaving on
Monday, March 9, 2009.
Room for all...details at
Museswings...
All aboard!!!

I'm buying my usual Friday Mega Millions ticket. You've described my exact feelings when checking the online results. But, heck, someone's got to win, right?

Lyn said...

Willow-
Yes, someone..if I win, I'll fly my bloggy friends in to help me put on the Ritz! (is this legal?)

"if any

Clay-
A while ago I was the makeup artist for the NY Lotto commercials..."You gotta be in it to win it"!! so good luck..& stay safe!

Never mind, your turn will come, possibly in a few hundred years' time, but it will come.

Lyn said...

Dave-
Thanks for the encouragement. I think I did set my karma back with these daydreams!! What a drag...

Hi Lyn,

Dreams are wonderful aren't they?! I rarely buy a lottery ticket, then once in a blue moon buy a random number selection. How hard should it be to get six little numbers??

Lyn said...

Hi Derrick-
Yes, how hard indeed..I only buy when the odds are totally impossible..but that moment......

Love this post. My experience with the lottery has pretty much been limited to when I was a child and we bought dime and quater chances from a card. Love the post lYN

Linda-
Thank you so much...my memory of my childhood had to do with buying a chance to win a car, or a toaster!!
