3 word wednesday lottery tale


balance
dictate
wander

On thanksgiving I was telling my family how my middle sons birth date keeps coming out in the lottery.
Every morning when I read the paper, I check the lottery numbers, even though I hardly ever play. Every morning I think.. "I hAVE to play HiS numbers" Yet, later in the day, I don't remember to play. On Tuesday, While food shopping I wandered away from the produce aisle and Picked his lucky birthday numbers and a few other birth-dates for the 120 million dollar mega millions game. After food shopping I needed to call a client because I needed to ask her to change wednesdays appointment time.
Before I could say why I was calling, she yelled 'LU! You're not canceling my appointment tomorrow, Are you?" I guess because I have all these lucky numbers in my head I quickly responded.. "YES Blanche! I won the lottery! So, I am not doing hair anymore!" It was so funny how she didn't even think I was kidding, She started congratulating me! haha I didn't keep the joke going for even two seconds and we had a good laugh. She then said, "Oh,If I know you, You WOuld still do my hair for me if I needed you to!" I said, "well... I would definitely HiRE someone to do it for you! but NO Blanche, If I am a millionaire, I Quit!" I love the balance I have with most of my clients. Business along with so much fun, so many laughs. Fast forward then to this morning... I am reading my morning paper.. I get to the lottery section.. I start(as usual) dictating the winning numbers aloud to my husband! The FIRST Three numbers are my middle son's numbers! For a split second I am ready to complain that I should play these numbers... and then Excitedly I remember.. Ooooh Ooooh I PLAYED, I PLAYED!! yesterday!! I run to find the tickets in my purse.. The first number... YES I have it! The second number...YES I have it!! The third.. Three in a row!! I have it! I have it! I've never had this luck before! and then...that was it! THREE numbers. SEVEN big dollars! You've never seen anyone so excited to win less than 10 bucks! pathetic.. BUt still FEELING hopeful. HIS Numbers ARE lucky! I just need to find the family members (from Some other family) with the other 3 lucky numbers! It could happen!

I won $9 on a scratch card once, and was so tickled! Doesn't take much to make us happy, does it?!?!

Way to go! I play quite often and once in a while win a buck. It's quite a thrill...:) My head is filled with how to spend several million dollars so I'm prepared for the big hit - I'll add you to the list.

I used to play a lot in Cali, won $47 once, but it just sort of petered out when I got to SoDak. I kind of decided that there wasn't such a thing as instant gratification through the lottery. Is that sad?

Love your post, Lucy. I've won several dollars too. And, it is a rush to say you won something. Even if it is a few bucks. But, I'm certain if I win the BIG bucks I will be able to spend it accordingly. Have a nice day.

Great story. Nice to have some proven lucky numbers.

I only play scratch and wins when a whisper of intuition hits...usually I win a buck or two then try for the bigger one...but on a rare rare occasion I buy a lotto I do the quick pick....I think you should keep playing his numbers...they're probably ones that come up often....Google search the numbers that win most!

Hugs Giggles....hope you win the big one, so you can visit me!
