I won R23 in the lottery and decided to give my partner Andre a call and let him know we’ve won the lottery. This is how the call went.
Me: Hi there
Me: Guess what?
Me: You’ll never believe what happened to me today
Me: You know I always play the lottery
Me: I was tidying up my handbag and there’s all these tickets lying around so I took them to the SPAR after work and checked the numbers
Me: and guess what
Andre: did we win
Me: YES (shouting)
Andre: *giggles* (I swear I heard him nervously giggle) we won?
Me: YES. WE WON THE LOTTERY
Andre: really? (now he’s excited) How much did we win?
Andre: a couple of million?
Me: not so much
Andre: a couple of hundred thousand
Andre: R23 000?
Me: no. R23
Me: are you there?
Andre: I don’t understand?
Me: we won the lottery. Aren’t you excited!?
Andre: we won R23?
Me: YES. Aren’t you excited
Andre: R23. Are you sure?
Andre: that’s not winning the lottery
Me: we won R23. That’s a win
Andre: *nervously laughing* no it’s not.
Me: a win is a win
Andre: not R23
Me: don’t be negative
Andre: I thought you we going to tell me we won millions
Me: I did say we won the lottery
Andre: R23 is not winning the lottery
Me: We DID win the lottery. I just didn’t say we won with 6 numbers
Andre: ok (laughs)
Me: how did you feel when I told you we won the lottery?
Me: I know. I could hear it in your voice. Now remember that feeling every time we play the lottery and we might win!
The conversation carried on but that was the best part. Today I learnt that dreaming is good and having BHAG are great.
