A normal Sunday morning, Tom Wilson, sat reading the Sunday newspaper at the breakfast table. The market dropped another 750 points this week. The auto manufacturers were operating at 30 per cent of capacity and talking
shutdown. Another bank failure story. Sarah, his wife was cooking breakfast in the kitchen and the two young kids were still in bed. He turned to the second page and glanced down to the lower left hand section of the page and suddenly sat back, set his coffee mug down on the edge of the table and grabbed the paper with both hands. Unfortunately he displaced the coffee mug dumping the hot coffee into his lap, scalding his private parts. He leaped up, turning his chair over and yelled, “Damn that burns”! Sarah came in from the kitchen and said, “My God! You have ruined your pants, What happened?”
“The pants are the least of my worries. I gotta get out of them.”
A few minutes later Sarah had cleaned up the mess and poured a new cup of coffee, which she was careful to place further from the edge of the table. Tom returned to the breakfast nook after a shower, wearing clean pants
and grabbed the paper. “Look at these numbers. They are yours and
my birth dates.”
“Those are the numbers I played. If this is right, I won the lottery.”
“Wow! That’s nice, how much did you win?”
“Two hundred and twenty million dollars, I think. I better check the Internet” He turned on the Mac computer and hit Safari then lottery.
Winning numbers 2, 11, 46, 12, 22, 47
One winning ticket sold in Oklahoma City, Ok.
Sarah sat down at the table, looked at Tom
with a skeptical expression, and said, “Tom, are
you sure about this?”
“Well that’s what the internet says.”
