In moments like this, I was taught to pray to St. Jude, and make a promise to donate some money to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital.
I prayed as hard as I could, and I promised to donate $1,000,000 if I win the jackpot.
The next day I read the news. On the front page, it showed my neighbour holding up the cheque for $70M. “I overheard my neighbour praying to St. Jude and offering $1,000,000. So, I bought a ticket and prayed, offering $1,000,001.”
