    A promise I hope to keep

    I was at the grocery store this evening. As I approached the cashier, she asked, "How are you doing?"

    Typical reply, "Great, how about you?"

    "I am going good", she said.

    But I could tell, that she really didn't mean it. As we talked more, it came out that a previous customer yelled at her loud enough that the whole store heard her. I tried to cheer her up a bit.

    On the way out, I saw the Powerball machine. I bought a ticket and went back and told her that if I win (154 million, I get after taxes and such about 35 million) I would give her a million dollars. Her eyes lit up, but somehow I don't think that she has high expectations, just based on the odds.

    So I thought, while I am giving away money, I might as well give some to DC as well. So if I win the big one, I will give Bumper $100,000 or enough to run DC for 10 years (whichever is greater) and I will choose one person at random and buy him any gun he wants...that he can legally get.

    I will keep you posted as to whether I win or not.

    That's mighty generous of you...
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    If he runs off to Hawaii he won't be able to pack heat, think thats off the list. Mighty generous of ya though exactly.

    Here is my ticket



    Here are the winning numbers



    Sorry guys. But the good news is the jackpot is up to $176 million. I will keep playing. Since I am no longer obligated to that cute little grocery checker, I can now give Sixto that million and learn why I got flipped off.
