just won a five million dollar lottery I'm speechless! Now finally,
I have the financial security that I need for my later years. There's
the vacation I could never afford and my debts are history. I can finally
buy a nice house, a new car, and help the kids through school for my
family and one or two close friend's too. Wow!! Five million dollars,
and no more working for other people.
the other hand, nice as it sounds, I can already see some potential
problems from my five million dollar windfall. I can see it now, lots
of friends that I never knew I had, publicity that I could well do without;
for that will only bring untold numbers of people trying to sell me
things that I don't need. Family conflict about who thinks they are
entitled to what, already I was getting cold feet. I turned the corner
to my apartment, I could not believe my eye's!! There were crowds of
people milling around yelling and shouting. Someone spotted me as I
rounded the corner, there was a yell and they came howling after me.
I took to my heels like there were wolves on my trail and got the hell
out of there as fast as I could!!
up with a start, I was still in my bed but in a cold sweat. Phew!! -
