I am having the weirdest day!
There are some things that you never think you are going to hear. They aren't real things. If someone came into the lunchroom and says they were abducted by aliens, I would say yeah right and go back to my yogurt. But today, OMG!
So we are all sitting in the lunchroom and one of the girls comes in. She was shaking, tears in her eyes, could barely speak. We were concerned by her distress and asked her what was wrong. She could barely even say it. Her dad had just won the LOTTERY!
How amazing is that! It is the coolest thing thing ever. He's the nicest guy, one of those ones you see and know that they deserve it and won't be changed by it. He's worked hard, made a good life for his family, but was always a paycheck from caught up. And not only that my friend has been scrapping to save the money to buy her wedding dress. That wedding is going to be amazing now!
Sometimes you think about what it would be like to win the lotto. Everyone has that list, take care of the family, buy a house or a car, take a nice trip. I want to go to Europe. But do you ever think about what it would be like if someone you knew would win the lotto? It's nice to realize I'm not petty or jealous. I couldn't stop crying I was so happy for her.
