An email can make or break your day, this one was a nifty one to receive but it could have been so much sweeter. But what are you going to do!!
The weekend was full of fun and excitement; the Christmas parties, the shopping, a holiday train, some cocktails with friends and lunch with family, church, falling on the icy Regina streets!
During lunch my phone sounded! A message! Our work lotto group had exciting news!
We have about 25 people subscribed to the lottery draws. We bonus up when there’s a substantial amount of dough on the line! Double those chances!! Friday’s draw, $60 Million bucks!! Plus bonus Millions! Yes Please!
I came back to the the office with cash to get in on that deal, however our Lottery Guru, Denise, had already bought the tickets. I wasn’t the only one late, Denise bought an extra ticket. I’m sticking by this, it was the extra ticket that got us soooo close! We were one number, one digit off winning sixty million dollars! THAT’S 60 Million!!! WHAT the HECK!!!
The message I received Sunday at lunch was very casual, “Missed by One Number”. Cool – we win $6, 116.20! That’s 235 per player. I didn’t realize we were talking about SIXTY MILLION freakin’ dollars!
What on earth would that do to you. Each one of us taking home just over 2 Million dollars. Talk about a Merry Christmas!
I know we were all buzzing with the old “WHAT IF”, but you can’t live like that. So, will we be that close again.
Denise had a very interesting moment when her friend also shared that they too had won, missing one number but there were fewer of them, so they each receive $1,500.00.
How close have you come to winning a major prize! I’m sure we all have a plan for our little chunk of cash this Christmas week.
