I won the lottery – what now?
As I said in this post I did follow suit and played the lottery as well.
After all there were 38 million Euro (56 million Dollar) in the jackpot. Who would not try their luck. As my friends and my loyal readers know, I played online. In true geek fashion if you will.
Imagine my surprise when I opened my mailbox this morning to find an email from the lottery people saying that I won. I rushed to open it and found out that I…OMG people I hope you’re sitting down reading this…won 5 Euro. Now I am all for taking care of the penny, knowing that if you do the dollars will take care of themselves. But really, five Euro??? That’s all the lotto fairy could do? At least the last time I won 20 Euro but it just keeps on getting less. I didn’t even have one single number right. I just happened to pick a lottery ticket by chance, that had one single measly right “end number” on which you can win money too. It was rather pathetic.
So it was back to work and slaving away. Ok that was a joke. I actually enjoy working for my company and as I mentioned in a post not too long ago (though probably ages ago in blogger world) I think my boss rocks. The good news however is, that the jackpot was not cracked once again. That means this time around it is worth 43 million Euro (63 million Dollar). But I guess the chances are slim. There is a saying here If you are lucky in love you are unlucky gambling…that’s gotta be it. However this will not stop me from trying my luck again on Wednesday because: you gotta be in it to win it. Hehe.
In that spirit I will enjoy my evening with the hubby and my two lovely bratty cats. They and my family are really the only things I need to be happy.
Hope you are all having a splendid day.
