Tragic: Instant Winner In Waiting

I have been neglecting the blog and now this stuff is building up. I have several characters to add to this wonderful game. Today's installment is "The Instant Winner In Waiting." He is that guy at work who is all hung up on winning the lottery. He can't believe that anyone would not give him their hard-earned dollars so he can take it on his monthly trip to Idaho to buy those glorious tickets.

Can you picture it. You and your co-workers huddled at a podium on CNN talking about how you have 11 freckles on your nose and how there are 9 people in your family (counting the pet fish) and on and on until you couldn't even open your eyes without those winning numbers bombarding you and bombarding you? The Instant Winner can picture that. He dreams about it every night. He has already decided what to buy and where to travel, now he need only do one more thing: WIN.

Hey! You're not getting paid to daydream, Instant Winner In Waiting! Get that dolly moving! Load those trucks!

The Instant Winner actually holds a lot of sway with people because he talks about what all people like to talk about: What are we going to do with all of that money once it is given to us? We're in it to win it.

The saddest part of all is that I have so many bouts of outragously BAD luck that a small voice tells me I'm due for something like a lottery win. Either that or cancer.
