Three Times A Charm.
I was on my way to work this past Saturday morning when I had this thought. I said to myself while driving that I was going to buy a $5 scratch ticket at the gas station by where I work. If I won any amount of money from it then after work, I would go to the gas station that is by my cousin and buy another scratch ticket in the amount that I won on the first ticket. And then I promised myself that if I won $30 dollars on that second scratch ticket that I would let myself buy a $30 scratch ticket.
So with first ticket that cost $5 dollars, I won $5 dollars. After work I drove to the other gas station by my cousin and bought another $5 scratch ticket. And low and behold I actually won $30 dollars. You never win just $30 on tickets. $20, $25, $40, that you do, but I’ve never heard of $30 dollar wins. I had six matching numbers at $5 each. So, as you can imagine, I started going crazy in my mind thinking that The Secret was true. So I go back inside and tell Eddie, the cashier there, what I said to myself that morning. I’m sure he thought I was crazy, but he gave me a $30 ticket and said I hope you win $500 dollars. And sure enough, that is what I won. I couldn’t believe it, and neither could Eddie!!!
I had been saying to myself that I was going to payoff my car payment before the new year so I could start 2009 without one, but it didn’t seem like that was gonna happen because of the economy. I still kept saying to myself that I didn’t know how I was gonna do it now, just that I knew I wasn’t gonna start 2009 without a car payment. And now because of that $500 scratch ticket I am able to!!!
