You know how when someone knocks at the door...

...and you open it up to see a bunch of camera men...

...and  a slightly familiar looking person...

...holding a check for a gazillion dollars...

...and it's from Publisher's Clearing  House...

...and you cry and look ridiculous and accept the check even though you're having a serious bad hair day...


...and then you cash the check and get all excited...

...having so many numbers in your checking account, so...

...you book a trip to go to every cool place you've ever drooled over...

...so then you have to run out and buy new wardrobe...

...including sandals that don't hide your baby toe and make you look malformed with only four toes on your feet (don't say 'huh'?   If you have freakishly short baby toes you know EXACTLY what I'm talking about here...if you don't...well...ummm... never mind!)...

...and then you have to buy new luggage to pack all the stuff in...

...all the while trying to avoid media interviews and people wanting to borrow $10,000 bucks until payday?

You know how when that happens you don't post on your blog?

...

...

Well.

It, technically, didn't happen to me...

...but it might have...

...and if it would have...

...I wouldn't have been posting on my blog.

So, see.

This does make sense.

Right?

...

...

Ummmm... ...

...anyway.

...

...

I have to go now.

You're too funny. I know it's not jet lag since you didn't fly. Road lag? Is there such a thing? :)

Modern Day Disciple said...

Tee hee. ;)Love your mind...

Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

I was waiting for the "well, I opened my door and it was an aluminum siding salesman"... Or maybe that just happened to me?:@)

Jim said...

Makes sense to me, Jenny. I hope you do win that money some day. And soon enough that you will be young enough to enjoy spending it!

Been absent from the Saturday Centus for quite a while because we've been gone. Promise to return, I would like to this week but it might to wait some.

Still trying to recover from all that Texas humidity? (Imagine living with it, every day, 24/7, 365... and people wonder why I'm cranky)

Theresa said...

You are TOO funny! I was listening to every word, thinking OH HOW LUCKY:) Have a blessed evening, perhaps you'll win next time! HUGS!

Terra said...

Jenny, you are TOO cute! Love your post and now I am concerned a bit about your baby toes. Smile.

Jeanie said...

Why do we always win the big bucks when we are having a bad hair day?
BTW....when you do win can I "borrow" $10k until payday?

Ms Sparrow said...

Oh you dreamer, you. It's such fun to contemplate--but then there's the supper dishes to do and what to do with that hair! (I'd more concerned about being caught without my bra!)

Nezzy (Cow Patty Surprise) said...

Hey Miss Jenny, I hate to inform ya but I'm winnin' that bad baby!!! Heeehehehe!!!

There'd be no doubt that if I DID win, I'd be up to my knees in dirt or manure.

Cute post sweetie!

Enjoy your week my friend. :o)

Andy David said...

Dear Jenny,
LOL...you got me! I was thinking how jealous my wife would be when I told her you had won...she's into PCH too. I'm happy to see you still have that wicked sense of humor. There's no harm in dreaming!
The comments are funny too. Thanks for sharing.

Pondside said...

Well, when you win you can come up and hide our here, by the ponds, until the hoopla dies down! (and I know a really good hairdresser and EVERY shoe store in town)

myletterstoemily said...

is there still such a thing as
publisher's clearing house?

Stef said...

Ha! I hate it when they come and my hair is having a bad day. That is so frustrating. You would think if I was going to win a million/billion dollars and they wanted me to look suprised, they could at least give me 5 minutes to brush my hair...
So inconsiderate.

Vicki/Jake said...

Ya, I know you better than to think this really happened:) Wear flipflops and show that little piggy! You're such a goofus.. xoxo

Ames said...

There's a reason I never have my picture taken. It's because I am not a photogenic person. I hope I have a facial mask on when I answer the door. That way the entire world won't know I've won the the Publisher Clearing House Million dollar prize.

It's nice to dream isn't it.~Ames

pasqueflower said...

LOL! Still waiting for that knock. But I do enter sweepstakes---"You can't win if you don't enter."

My kids and grandkids know that when money is tight, their requests are often met, not with a "no," but with this answer-- "When I win the lottery."

Sue said...

That must have happened to me, too. I've been a little big out of the picture blog-wise myself, lately.

But I'm baaaack! (And I'm glad you are, too.)

=)

Wanda..... said...

Spring doings, chores and a few other surprises have cut into my blogging time too, Jenny! I sometimes have to read and run!

Judie said...

PCH and baby toes in the same post. That's what humidity does to you. Just be glad you don't have toes like mind--gnarled.

We have a friend who won the national lottery about 10 years ago. At first it made me want to run out and buy tickets when I heard that, but I don't frequennt out-of-the-way mom and pop convenience stores, so I don't have a chance. I use that money to buy toe nail polish instead.

Pat Tillett said...

I'll just say congratulations in advance, for when you do win....

Splendid Little Stars said...

ahahahahahaha!

I read what Ames said. I think it would be a good idea to keep a face mask AND a wig right by the front door just for occasions like these!

Nellie's Cozy place said...

Jenny,
You always crack me up. Hubby and I used to joke that one day we would win the publisher clearing house giveaway and be running up and down our driveway saying money, money money, like they do in their silly
commercials. lol

at least glad you know what you would do if you hit it big too!! lol

Have a good day and thanks as always for coming by............
appreciate your sweet comments,
and hope you had a good Mom's day too. Looks like you got to see your son..........will comment more on that later.
Blessings, Nellie
