I planned to buy five $1 scratch off tickets and hide them in random places. I put my twenty dollar bill into this lotto machine:
Then I saw this sign:
Problem #1: THIS MACHINE DOES NOT GIVE CHANGE. (Esta maquina no da cambio.)
Problem #2: I needed so much change. (Yo necessito mi dinero back.)
Well, that wasn't going to happen, so I had no choice but to buy so many lotto tickets. I attached each ticket to a note like this:
And I placed them in random places for random people to feel randomly kinded. I put them here:
And I threw one in here:
I tried again to be kind here at the bus stop where I struck out days ago:
And I even threw one in here:
Problem #4: If a gal like me walks into a public restroom, closes herself into a stall and starts taking cell phone pictures... it freaks people out. I think the sound of the tape dispenser just before the picture taking really threw that poor lady for a loop. (For future reference, I will turn off the clicky "chk-chk" sound next time I am using my camera in a public restroom for any reason. We really don't need anyone speculating...)
I did play and win big myself... two whole bucks back in my pocket.
Problem #5: When one accidentally and significantly overspends on lotto tickets, one may be insulted at such small winnings.
Well, there you have it. Day 14. I may be out $13 more than I planned... but, I feel just a little richer for it. I sincerely hope that some stranger wins big and that the story will remain that the kindness of an anonymous stranger led to some Average Joe becoming a very Rich Joe who is known more than anything else for being a very Generous Joe.
