Lottery Ticket

Friday, August 29th, 2014

My son reminded me to get a lotto ticket while we were at the check-out counter. As I finished paying the cashier, he said, “I hope you win, because then you can quit your job, right?” I agreed that it would be great. He added, “And then I can quit third grade!”
