I read a news article recently that made me chuckle. Granted, it’s fairly easy to make me laugh, but the irony in this story is definitely comical. http://www.columbiatribune.com/news/2009/oct/03/admitted-embezzler-wins-lottery-drawing/
In a nutshell, a former radio executive in Kansas admitted he embezzled almost $88,000 from his employer in order to pay for his addiction to scratch off lottery tickets. (Hey, I didn’t make it up, I’m just repeating it… ) At a preliminary hearing recently he was notified he won a $96,000 lottery prize. The irony? The $96,000 winnings are going to pay back his employer so he won’t see a penny of it. You have to admit, that is laughable, yeah?
And in other news, I leave for Guatemala in just 5 days! Yay! I’m busy with last minute preparations and very excited. Many, many photos to follow when I return.
