An Open Postscript to the Gods of Powerball
Dear Gods of Powerball:
I’m so sorry! I was busy working, then I had to do Friday folders on Wednesday at lunch because there is no school the rest of the week, THEN I worked the book fair at school. I was so busy helping out today that I did not buy my Powerball ticket, so if you would kindly hold the jackpot for my until Saturday, I promise to get my ticket tomorrow. They won’t let me buy one right now because I missed the cut off by 13 minutes.
Now, I realize that had I not had dinner, I could have gotten a ticket, and that’s my own selfishness, but I am sure in your benevolence that you can find it in your cash rich hearts to forgive me. I’ll be out tomorrow to get a home for our new rescued crayfish, and will get the ticket then. Mr. Aggressive needs new digs.
