Omigosh, this stuff never happens to me -- especially on Friday the 13th. Yesterday after work I decided to stop and pick up a New Yorker Magazine at my favorite magazine store. For some reason the lottery tickets looked -- enticing. I never buy lottery tickets. Ever. But today I bought a Scratch 'N Win, and ... yes, you guessed it ... I won. I'm not going to tell you how much it was, but it was one number -- followed by three zeros. Three! Okay, so the number was fairly low in the scale of one to ten, but still, it was followed by three zeros.
I am in desperate need of a new television set, so this raises the ante a little bit -- well -- a lot.
We have an ongoing lottery pool at work, and we keep hoping we'll be the winners that everyone reads about on the front page of the newspaper.
"BC office wins lottery -- no one shows up for work..."
Yesterday afternoon at almost 4:30, everyone had gone home for the day and I was the only person left in the office. The CEO came around the corner, stopped in his tracks, looked at me and said, "Oh, I see no one is here..."
Working in a large organization is sort of like school, isn't it? We walk through the halls and say "Hi" to certain people even though we don't otherwise know them. And wouldn't it be fun if we had recess? Here is my favorite commercial.
Have a great weekend, everyone. I'm off to do some shopping.
