T13: Mega Millions Lotto Winnings
Tuesdays Mega Millions Lottery was up to a record $370 Million Dollars and I won!! No, I didn't win the whole thing but I have a winning ticket here for getting 2 White Balls and the Mega Ball numbers. The payout is a cool $10 bill that I can spend in whatever way that I wish. Here is my list of 13 possible ways to blow the cash.

1. Lunch. A Chicken McNugget Happy Meal and a Number Seven Chicken Club Value meal at Mickey Dee's comes out to exactly $10.00.

2. Gas. Ten bucks will give me about three gallons of the fossil fuel so I can keep my lawn mowed all season long.

3. Underpanties. I can drive on over to Walmart, fight the parking lot and the crazy Rollback specials and snag myself a three pack of Undies for $7.99. Pick up a candy bar and a Starbucks Frappachino while waiting in the checkout line for 30 minutes.

4. Kibbles and Bits. Treat the Basset Hounds to a week of colorful Play-Doh shaped Kibbles that they can stare at and play with vs. their usual fare of Old Roy Lamb and Rice meal.

5. Rent Three DVD's. I can entertain myself by renting Three DVD's of movies that I may or may not enjoy. Chances are I won't get them back to the video store in time and have to pay another $10 in late fees.

6. Lotto. I can buy 10 more Lotto tickets in hopes I could win something more substantial.

7. Debt. Pay off that $10 that I borrowed from my Mother 15 years ago.

8. Hair Care. I can go splurge on some Pantene Shampoo and Conditioner and put the cheapy Suave stuff aside for awhile.

9. Dollar Store. I can go to the Dollar Store and pretend I'm at the Chucky Cheese prize counter and pick up 10 different must have items to clutter my home.

10. Amazon.com There is quite a list of books to read accumulating over there in my wish list. I suppose I could go over there and buy one.

11. Cootie-Bugs: Squirt has been bugging me to buy her the game of Cootie-bugs for quite some time.

12. Eyebrows. The beauty parlor down the street charges $10 to wax and shape eyebrows. (Ouch!)

13. Tithe. I've concluded that $10 isn't really worth going out of my way to spend for anything. The best place for this unexpected little trickle would be to sneak it in the offering plate this Sunday and let God multiply it towards a better purpose.

    Congrats on your lottery win!!! Hey, $10 is better than not winning at all, right? I played $10 in tickets and somehow managed to not even hit one single number. I'm not even sure if that's statistically possible!
    Great, great list!!!! Happy TT- Jessica

    Congrats on the $10 buck win. Love that you could go to MCD's or tithe . . . very creative list. My TT (no 5) is up too - all about the writing life with a couple of photos thrown in for good measure. Have a great weekend!

    Fun list! $10 is better than nothing. :) I'd probably do #8, 10 or 13 with it.

    Happy T13. :)

    very good list but I have to pick the last one...give & u shall receive! =)

    Tithing is definitely the best thing, but all of those sound great! At least it's a better way to think about it than "only $10" - more like "it can buy me 13 different things ;)". Happy TT!

    Bushy eyebrows, dinners, games, versus starving kids getting food, schools in Africa getting books, a goat or medical supplies...... what a choice... congrats on the win and the fun you had spending it...

    I would so take the $10 and go/run to Starbucks and get me a white chocolate latte. YUM!

    Ooh, I like philanthropy, but Starbucks or Borders would have won if I had a spare $10.

    I'm up!

    Hi Margaret!
    For only $7.99 ( count not $10)
    you can live healthy, happy and longer life if you'll buy "Fit for Life" by Harvey and Marilyn Diamond and did their good advice.
    I'm sure!
    Good luck!

    I think your last thing is the best. It takes off all the pressure and serves a good purpose.

    my movie with Jula Roberts :(:(:(

    Up until #13 I was gonna vote for the lunch with peewee or the the Cootie-Bug game! But since you brought it up - I'm pretty sure #13 IS the way to go! LOL!
