Khan poses with Housemate's lottery winnings

Many working class people fantasize about what to do when they win the lottery but a fantasy for many became today a reality for my housemate who won $10 in the lotto.

A week or two ago Housemate purchased  what he described as a “222 ticket” who has since misplaced the ticket and receipt.

“I bought some of that fake orange juice,” he says. “You know, that stuff you hate. What do you call it. Ah, SunnyD!”

The SunnyD, according to Housemate, came to “$3 and some change” which leaves approximately $6.50 in change.

He asked me to use the $5 bill to buy some “beverages” a word we use to describe those 12 packs of Coke you can get. I, however, have no intention of going out to buy anything. I’m feeling lazy so the $5 will just have to sit in his wallet for a bit longer.

As for the change, he has “no idea” as to how he’ll spend it.

I am a resident of Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada who has blogged here for 20 years. I like to share my thoughts and feelings on my own online space. From 1998 until 2017 I worked as a journalist and I hope to use this website as an archive for all of my stories.
