With Monday off from work, it was back to real life and reality on Tuesday. The holidays are done and it's time for some kind of normalcy, whatever that may be. The talk with several patients was the 'Mega-Millions' lottery that had grown to over 300 million dollars. A few of the patients had bought a ticket and thoughts were on what they would do if they were the big winner. Now I do not consider myself a 'lucky person' which is why you can count on one hand how many times I've personally bought a lottery-ticket. But it was 'only' a dollar, and since my chances of winning were said to be 'one in 176-million' I fell into that dream of 'what if,' and I bought a single ticket. Imagine my surprise on Wednesday morning when I checked my numbers and saw that I won a whole $150--I won the lottery!! Okay, it wasn't the big jackpot, but I thought it was a pretty good return on my one-dollar investment the day before. And I still have dreams of what I'll do with my winnings...Will I buy a new purse, or gas for my van? I think it'll have to be gas--With prices going up and after taxes I'm sure it won't be enough for the purse.
