Flesh coloured ticket
Tide of optimism high
Lucky numbers? – No!
Joining Bluedaisyz Weekly Photo Challenge: NUMBERS
Ronovan’s weekly Haiku Challenge: TIDE and FLESH
Whilst Vashti and Eddie have gone for darker themes which reminds me of the refugee crisis in the Mediterranean. Here is a link to a quite brilliant, if harrowing, BBC Radio 4 Drama on the subject: ‘Our Sea’.
It is unusual for me to buy a lottery ticket, but I had found two one pound coins down the back of the sofa. I could not resist the potential clichéd story that was running in my mind, inside me is a drama queen just itching to have her day! So off I went a bought a Lucky Dip Lottto ticket for last Saturday.
I had forgotten all about it until Matt Baker, on the One Show (BBC 1 magazine programme) announced last night that there was an unclaimed ticket out there with a huge prize attached to it. The ‘tide of optimism’ was high – well why not enjoy the fantasy of how to spend a vast fortune, for just a few minutes – oh the good I could do with that money ….. the eco-house I could build ….. ….. the gifts I could lavish on family and friends……..the zoom lens I could buy ….. you know the sort of thing……
I went to the website to check the numbers.
Well obviously I didn’t win, not even one number matched, and I was just screwing up the ticket to put in the recycling bin when inspiration struck of how to combine the Haiku and Photo challenge this week – see, every cloud……!
Next week photo prompt is: SHADOW (I’m looking forward to that one)
