That horrible dream kept coming back: there I was, a birthday girl at the local gas station purchasing the winning lottery ticket for the MegaMillion jackpot.

As a devout Christian, I condemn gambling and other greedy activities. However, this dreadful nightmare made me feel shamefully happy and put my virtues in danger.

So, on my birthday, I resolved to resist Evil and locked myself home. The dream did not return.

The same night, some sleazy socialite from Miami stole the lucky numbers from my dream and won the Mega Million jackpot.

Some people have no decency, no decency at all.

    Thanks, Neville. I just wish that I would be as productive as you are :-) ! Every new Drabble for me is like giving birth to a child.
