Lucky Numbers

I have never been lucky with raffle contests and other games of chance.

But when it was announced last week that the biggest prize winning for the Philippine Lotto was up for grabs, I immediately dragged my ass to the nearest lotto booth to place my bet. No harm in trying, right?

Guess, what? I won!!!

I picked 5 out of the 6 winning numbers! 

I couldn’t believe my luck. Finally, karma has found its new home at The Deadbeat Club.

I screamed and jumped for joy like a high school chick who's been asked to the prom by the resident jock. 

So this is how it feels to be a winner. Raft3r just it the jackpot, baby!

Even before I could find out the details of my winning, I was already daydreaming of what I would do with the money.

I could finally pay off the balance of my car loan, take mom to Europe, get educational plans for nieces, buy the latest gadgets for myself, treat friends and family, invest, and do some charity deeds.


With my winnings, I am not even aspiring for paid blogging anymore. Plus, I can finally propose to my significant other. Things are indeed looking up.

Oh, and one more thing…

Happy April Fools’ Day, everyone!

Hahaha! You didn't fool me, I was expecting a catch. But it was intelligently written, those who don't know you would easily believe:)

I've never been lucky with numbers or in any raffle. I've never won even a pack of sweets.

I wonder when my luck will come.

Happy April Fool's, Raft3r!
