Today's My Lucky Day

So, last night my friend, Donna, called to tell me Nordstrom Rack was opening and did we want to go.  That they would be raffling off $100 gift certificates.  The only drawback was that we needed to be at/near the Mall by 8:00 a.m.  Whatev . . .  I said, "Sure."

I set my alarm so I could wake up by 6:00 to pick her up by 7:30.  When we arrived, there was already a line, but they were offering breakfast snacks and coffee, so we had stamina for the wait.

Neither of us won on the first round.  Nor the big prize of $1,000.  But on the final round, they called my name.

Well, if Donna hadn't dragged me there, I never would have won.  So I split the gift card with her.  A few minutes later the doors opened and we shopped 'til we dropped -- $90 that is.

After that, the obligatory stop at Starbucks, then home.  All done by 10:00 a.m.

Oh, yeah, bought a PowerBall ticket, too.  

Hope your day is as lucky.
