Fickle Flying Finger of Fate…*
I’m still waiting..
Folks, there will not be an article today on Tech–for Everyone.. and it is quite possible that I may never write another article ever again. I may just retire.
Now before you go getting all ‘het up’, and cross with me, I want you to ask yourself if maybe you wouldn’t retire too.. if you were me. Understand, I’m rich now. See? This e-mail from Mrs. Anderson proves it:
BRITISH NATIONAL LOTTERY LONDON, UK.
PRICE AWARD DEPARTMENT.
We the Board and Management of the British National Lottery happily announce to you the draw (#251) of the British National Lottery.. claim a total sum of £1,000,000 (ONE
MILLION POUNDS) in cash credited…
I am not exactly sure how much real money a million “pounds” works out to be.. but I’m thinking it is a pretty good sum, and I’m hoping it is enough to buy myself a tropical island somewhere in the Pacific.. Because I think that would be pretty neat. Me. Palm trees. Sandy beaches. Sunshine.
I have sent my vital information, and winning reference number to Mr.Hillary Martins (The Foreign Service Manager) as the e-mail instructed me to do.. and now I am simply waiting for them to deposit the money into my account.
Once that happens, I’m pretty sure I’ll be out of here.. because that’s gotta be a lot of money.
In fact, I think it’s enough money that I’m willing to overlook the “PRICE AWARD”. (I know they meant “prize”. They’re probably just as excited and happy as I am..) I’ve never been a millionaire before.. this is so cool!

Y’all enjoy your weekend, ya’ hear? And, please, let’s be safe out there — exercise some paranoid common sense when surfing the web!
