Karma Is Definitely Apologizing To Me
Yesterday I told you about how I'd had "one of those days", you know - everybody has 'em. It's the kind of day where nothing life changing happens, but nothing seems to go right. You know how it goes.
Again, I know everybody has their days. Nobody died, I still have a positive bank balance. The lights are still on. I still have a job. It could be a lot worse. I appreciate that. But when it's happening to you, it feels like the whole world is against you, right?
Well, this time life said it was sorry for picking on me. You remember how I told you that Husbando was gone on his camping trip - and that he'd be gone til Friday? It was a long trip, a full seven days. It was a nerd paradise for him. But, his tent ripped in a storm, and having all your stuff wet for another three days didn't sound like fun. So he came home early! Not only that, but I'm an actual winner!
I'm sure everybody knows the Shell station at the corner of Limit and Broadway. I go in there a lot, it's in the neighborhood of where we live. I go in there so often, the cashiers know my name. And every time I go in there, I take my receipt, turn it over, and write my name. They have a weekly winner drawing, and I enter but I never win. EXCEPT FOR THIS TIME! I know it's not that big a deal, but I never get to win anything. I know you guys say that to me a lot when you're trying to win prizes, but the person who gives away the prizes REALLY never gets to win. So it was a pretty cool little surprise!
Now, the big question - my prize. I have a choice. I can either take $10 in gas, or $10 in lottery tickets. I'm torn! While part of me says I should just be practical and take the gas... part of me says, what if you win? I could win twenty bucks or something! But then, I could also end up with nothing. So I guess I wouldn't be any worse off than I was before. I never buy lottery tickets, and I guess I could use free gas.
What do you think? Should I take the gas or the lotto tickets? I have til Tuesday to decide. Comment and let me know what you think!
