#atozchallenge, L is for Lottery…

Landon had just left for his 12-hour shift, so his call surprised Brittany.  “What’s wrong?” she whispered, not wanting to wake the month-old twins.  “Nothing, babe,” he assured her excitedly, asking if she could check Saturday’s lottery numbers online.  “The ticket was in my coat pocket.  I forgot about it until I saw the winner was sold at our Shell station.”

He read her the numbers on their ticket.   “My, God, Lan, they’re there.  Only one winner — $3.75 million!”  She started laughing.  “Come home!  Can you tell them you don’t feel well?”

“I don’t,” he joked.  “My heart’s pounding.  We’re freakin’ millionaires!”

  8. A classic answer: “I don’t.”

    Nope, he wouldn’t be lying at all if he told them he didn’t feel well.
