Jackpot!

I just got an email from one of my best friends. Her parents won the lottery! 24 million split between three couples! Woofreakinhoo!!! I'm sooo happy for them! They're really nice people. I've been to their house with Leasa for lunch and other times. So nice to see someone win it that could use it too.

They've been playing the same numbers for 21 years and finally hit. Imagine. They're in their 70s and have about 8 daughters and a pile of grandchildren. It's gonna be a happy Christmas in that family!

So now I think I'm really never going to win the lottery. Last year my first cousin won and now my friend's parents. The odds are against me.

Wow! Imagine what you would do with that money...

I have no idea how the odds work, but I know what you mean. Anytime something bad happens to someone I know I feel the same way, like there isn't as much of a chance we could *both* be in a car accident now. (or something like that)

I'm happy for your friend and her parents.

Maybe odds isn't the correct word for it but yes, that's exactly what I meant. It was like when I found out I had Grave's Disease (thyroid) and I was almost relieved because I thought, "What are the chances of me getting TWO diseases?"

Oooh, I have some really good "business opportunities" that they'll want to get in on! :-)

Hey! I've been playing the same numbers for almost 20 years. Does this mean I'll be the next winner!?!

I'm happy for your friends but I think they should give a nice share to you. After all, you;re like a daughter to them - right? Heck, for a small share I would be like a daughter to them!

That is so awesome. I like hearing that people that I know or at least have a degree of separation to have won. If it can't be me.

Hooray for them! I like to hear that people won who didn't already win and then blow the whole thing on solid gold houses or something.
