I figured I was a shoo-in to win the Mt. Madonna School 2008 Dream House Raffle. I just had that feeling in my gut: I’m going to buy one ticket, and they’re going to pull my number out of the hat when they choose the winner.
Boy, was I wrong. I lost, spectacularly. I got bupkis. Nothing. As in, zip, zero. Not even a phone call to say “Hey, Seb, we’re sorry – some guy up in Scotts Valley won. Better luck next time.”
And now, the effrontery – the dream house is being sold, just scant weeks after it was won. You can be sure I would have moved right on in and enjoyed the sea air, at least for a couple of years.
And to add insult to injury, somehow, I didn’t even end up with the listing for the 2008 Dream House. Sheesh. Guess I’ll have to go back to makin’ money the old-fashioned way: working. 🙁
