Think of a time when you’ve won something. Tell what you won and how you won it.
I have won a few things in my life – and Easter egg basket, toiletries and other small things. What I am prompted to write about this time is the last time I ever won anything. It was actually before Christmas and we had gone to our local RSL club for dinner. They generally have raffles going there either to raise money for themselves or for other community groups. On this night, it was an RSL raffle with prizes including fruit boxes, meat trays, cash and alcohol. To the taunts of “you know you never win any of these things” ringing in my ears I went to purchase some tickets. Since it was a multi-draw raffle it went on for some time. Each time they got close to my numbers but not close enough. Each time the Garden Gnome rubbed it in a little more about me not winning anything. So I turned around and said to him “Okay, I’m putting it out the universe. I WILL win something tonight”. He laughed. He laughed even harder each time my number wasn’t called but I just kept repeating “I WILL win something”. I wasn’t worried about his laughter as I knew he was just having fun with me but I was not going to let him get away with it. It came to the last draw and he turned to me and said “I told you, you’d never…….” And then my number was called over the PA system.
A win has never felt so good.
So please share times you have won something. What was it? And how did you feel?
