Saturday (ahem, not-so-morning) Breakfast Serial

Hi Guys. Sorry I'm late.

***********************

Jen was almost out the door when the thought hit her.

Nah. Couldn't be.

Could it?

I mean, she'd bought a ticket.

But, no. No way. Bonnie knew her numbers. She'd have looked, would've known.

Still . . . it wouldn't hurt to check. I mean, the ticket was right there in her wallet.

Apologizing to the person behind her, she turned her cart around and made her way back to the checkstand by the service desk where Bonnie was waiting, grinning, extending the little slip of red and white paper that held the winning numbers.

Feeling sheepish, she took the paper from her and glanced down. One quick look would tell her for sure.

She stared. Stunned.

No. She must be reading it wrong. Bonnie must've run her a new ticket for the next drawing or something.

She looked more closely. No. It said "Winning Numbers" and the date from last Saturday clear as day, right at the top.

She read the numbers again, her breath growing ragged.

"Honey, are you all right?" Bonnie looked up from the customer she was assisting. "You don't look soo good."

Jen didn't look up. She couldn't tear her gaze away from the slip of paper in her hand. "Oh. . . my . . . God."

I like this story. It's funny cuz I buy lottery tickets all the time. I keep hoping. The good news is that my state (TN) actually uses some of the money for TN residents to go to school.

Thanks again for the story so far
