It Could Have Been You.....

What would you do if, whilst finally doing the laundry that's been at the bottom of the basket for months, you pulled a jackpot-winning lottery ticket out of your jeans pocket... only to discover that it expired earlier this week? It's a possibility since an unclaimed 9.4 million quid disappeared from some punters grasp on Monday just gone.....

But before you think "What a stupid twat" think on this:-

The date of the winning draw was 6th July 2005, a Wednesday night. If you were the lucky winner that night you would have discovered that you can't take it down your local corner shop to redeem the winnings - no, instead you must either present the ticket to the lottery bosses in London or call them up and get them to come to you.... lets assume you take the first of those options.

So, in your excitement you decide you'll fuck work off tomorrow and jump on the very next train down from Doncaster, probably the last one of the day. After a sleepless night planning how you will spend your new riches Thursday morning finally arrives. Straight out the hotel door into rush hour London, you jump on the underground (or maybe a bus) thinking "I'm the luckiest cunt in the world", when all of a sudden.....


I wonder if anyone else has noticed that the day after the unclaimed ticket came good was the infamous 7/7. Adds a whole other twist to Alanis Whatsernames 'Ironic'....

Cheers m'dears!

Allow me to spell it out... The day after that particular lottery was the day of the bomb blasts in London... I am speculating that the lucky winner of the lottery may have been in London to register his / her win and ended up being a casualty.

Not a nice thought, I know, but it's just the way my brain works...

Are we working through a Binty retrospective here?

I knew this would happen. It's a tosser time warp. Beam me up Scotty.
