For the record, I did not win the Oregon Megabucks lottery last night. Just to be sure, I checked the numbers again this morning. No miracles in sight. They were the same as last night. Dang. Maybe I’ll just hang on to this ticket and wait for the Lottery Commission to issue an apology and correct the winning numbers to match mine.
I suppose I should dump the brochure with the wonderful, bright pictures of my new boat, call and cancel my Hummer purchase, and cancel the contract on my mountain cabin. (I know. Hummers are no longer in production, but I know a guy who might sell me one. I was just a little ahead of myself.)
The charities I like to support will just have to settled for my meager offerings…for now. I plan to give more next week…right after the Monday drawing. But maybe I should rethink my charitable giving. Perhaps a set amount each week would be the best option. I’ll think on that. Charity first?
In the meantime, bring on the millions.
