A cool thing happened to me this afternoon. I got a free large diet cherry-limeade from Sonic ’cause I was their “Customer of the Day.”
I don’t know if it was random or because of my mad ordering skills, but being as this is Sunday and e’erybody done gone to Church and learned about being kind to their fellow men and women, SURELY, I wasn’t the first polite person to drive through? That’s unthinkable, unlikely, and just unbelievable.
Which means it was RANDOM. I haven’t won anything random since the 4th grade when I won an electric drill playing bingo at the Negreet Halloween Carnival.
(According to the critics in my household, I left out the funniest part of the story. So here it is:
When I won that drill, my parents thought I’d stolen it (because 8 year olds with no prior criminal history tend to start stealing DRILLS– not cakes, candy or glow-in-the-dark purple spider rings) and made me take it back to Mr. Miller. Who, of course, confirmed that I had indeed WON the drill playing bingo. Fair and Square.
Ha, ha. My parents scarred me for life. But, your turns coming… I’m gonna get you and your little cat, Misty, too.)
I’m not saying I haven’t beaten astronomical odds before, but unlike today’s prize, I’m pretty sure I DID something that led to their existence:
As the final quarter of this year gets started, I want to say I’m so incredibly grateful for my family, my friends and my health. I’m thankful that I live in the United States of America and am a resident of the great State of Louisiana.
Some days I don’t think I can make it another minute (usually those are very, very hot and dry days) and other times I wouldn’t change a thing.
Hope you enjoy Burn the Honeysuckle by The Gourds (I don’t think that’s them fishing).
