Paper Roses Cost me about 50 cents each.
Instant Scratch off Lotto tickets – 1.00 each
So I Bartered about 4.50 to Get This 350.00 Apple iPad Mini.
In a Restaurant.
Our Brunette waitress was smiling and happy and
getting us all kinds of Extra stuff from the kitchen.
A clean soup spoon.
More Ketchup.  (My Dad puts ketchup on his string beans)
Extra Napkins.
So I smiled and Thanked her
and Gave her a LOTTO ticket.
Then While she watched
I made her a Red Paper Rose
Then another LOTTO ticket.
Then a Yellow Rose.
A 3rd Lotto ticket
and a Purple Rose.
This Girl Was Skipping
and dancing.
The end of the meal
comes and Sue
brings over some
Raffle Tickets.
Sue says, “The Restaurant
chain is celebrating it’s
20th Anniversary.  You’ve
Been SO Great here are
10 Chances to win a
Free Drink or a meal
or even a Computer.”
My Dad is 96 and says,
“What’s the holdup?
Let’s go.”
I am scratching madly away
and say, “Just a minute.”
3 Scratch-Cards in and The
spoon I am Scratching cards
with Uncovers the words…
GRAND PRIZE
WINNER
And Darn if I didn’t win
an Apple iPod Mini.
I – I put the rest of the
scratch-offs in my pocket
so Sue didn’t get into
trouble for giving me
10 Cards.
II – Then we had to wait
for the manager.
III – I signed about 10
pages of FORMS.
IV – The manager is
muttering, “I can’t
believe it.  2nd day
of the Promotion
and our only Grand
Prize is gone.”
Turns out they
issued ONE Apple
Mini to each Restaurant
and I GOT IT.
Thanks,
Glenn
