That's one HUNDRED bucks, baby! $90.00 profit - not bad!
The numbers have to add up to either 7, 11 or 21. I won on all six sections.
So, today I decided to buy $10.00 more with part of my winnings. I brought them home and let The Bean scratch off a few. It's illegal, but if no one sees, what the heck. :) He scratched off one and said 2 + 8 +1 "That's 11" he said. "Well, scratch it off, what did you win?" I asked
He scratched it off and was very, very quiet. He just sat there holding it. Finally he handed it to me.
We looked at each other, counting on our fingers to make sure that 2 + 8 + 1 = 11.
Homeschoooling at it's best.
2 + 8 + 1 = 11
It does! It does!
We were in disbelief. It couldn't be. Then........we believed it. We won! We won! In my mind I was on the phone calling my Mom, calling my Dad, calling The Breadman. Woo-hoo! Twenty One GRAND, Baby!
As I cleaned up the scratch off silver stuff on the rest of the card so we could go get our TWENTY ONE THOUSAND DOLLARS, I scratched off a "2".
2 + 8 + 12 = We didn't win twenty one grand.
Poor kid got all embarrassed thinking I was mad at him. Or disappointed. Heck, we only "thought" we had struck it rich for about thirty seconds.
But, they sure were thirty SWEET seconds!
**We did "win" $15.00, so I guess we'll try it again.**
