111. Sometimes it pays to be a loser

When Joanna bought her first car she thought that the first thing she’d do would be to take a lottery ticket using numbers based on the car registration.

So she did that, and…

SHE WON!
SHE WON!
SHE WON!

When John bought his first car he thought that the first thing he’d do would be to take a lottery ticket using numbers based on the car registration.

He did that, and it was a complete waste of money.

When Kitty bought her first car she thought that the first thing she’d do would be to take a lottery ticket using numbers based on the car registration.

In the end she didn’t do it because her friend Joanna had done it and won, and the chances of it happening twice were pretty remote.

Had Kitty taken a ticket and won, (according to the writer of this story) her husband would’ve run off with a younger woman, her daughter would’ve died from a drug overdose, her eldest son would’ve committed suicide, her younger son would be in prison for murder, and Kitty herself would have died in a private plane crash off the coast of Martha’s Vineyard.

Kitty has no idea how lucky she is to have been a lottery loser.

I delight in having my dull life coloured by your intelligent perceptions, your wit, and your vivacity.
