Yesterday I wrote about what a Monday I had. Here's why.
Caller # 15 to local radio station will win $200 in Florida Lotto scratch off tickets.
Me: Dial, dial, dial.
Him: Hey, who's this?
Me: GET OUT!
Him: I have two questions for you. 1) are you over 18
Him: 2) Have you won a prize from here in the past 30 days?
Me: Nooooo, holy cow!
Him: Congratulations Kaaren you just won $200 in Florida Lotto Tickets
Me: (if whisper-screaming were a sport, I'd win gold, baby.) OH MY GAWD! (I'm whispering all this) I CAN'T YELL! MY BOSS IS ON THE PHONE NEXT TO ME!
We continue funny banter about me possibly winning $250k & telling my boss 'good-bye' and such. He takes my info. and we hang up. I'm shaking and I call David. "TURN ON THE RADIO!!!" I tell him.
They play my winning recording (my boss listens in; he's off the phone now) and we're all high-fiving.
Today, we go during my lunch break to pick up my prize. Yes, David met me there, the dork. We go in, I fill out paperwork, and an employee hands me a nylon zippered bag. Huh? What's with the bag? We sit down in the lobby and open the bag. Inside, we have:
a FL Lottery T Shirt
a FL Lottery Hat
a hand-held fan that when the blades spin, it spells out words (Isabel took THAT).
a hand-held weather/storm radio
an MP3 PLAYER!!!!
and 100 ea. $2 scratch off tickets!!
An MP3 player! A whatchamacallit - Shuffle. AND 100 $2 scratch off tickets!!!
We picked up lunch and took it back to work where we proceeded to scratch and scratch and scratch.
Total loot from tickets: $84 won and ten more free tickets won. *snort* GO ME!!
