“What a good time!
“This has made my day. It’s unbelievable!”
The hardworking man said it would be difficult to concentrate at work after discovering he’d won the 1st Prize.
“God I want to walk off the job right now and take the rest of the day off,” he declared.
“It’s going to be hard to concentrate. I might take a sickie tomorrow.
“It sure makes the day easier though.”
When we asked how he planned to use his prize, the tradesman said he had a few ideas.
“I think I will take my wife out for a nice dinner this weekend to celebrate,” he said.
“Then I’m going to buy myself a few new toys and put some on the mortgage.”
