Me and GAW – Together At Last

8 April, 2013

On Friday, I was discussing the Grand National with GAW and the fact that we had both drawn rubbish horses in the office sweep and we weren’t going to win. And the subject of not winning led us to discussing the lottery. She was buying a ticket for the Euromillions this week – it’s like the normal lottery but tickets are sold across Europe. Yes it has longer odds but it also has a bigger jackpot and more small prizes. I’ve never done the Euro, I said, but I do hear the news stories about £100million jackpots and thought I really should have a punt.

In fact I have been thinking for a while that I am missing a trick by not doing the lottery, Euro or otherwise. For the outlay of only two pounds, there is no an outside chance of being a multimillionaire. Someone has to win, and even though it’s millions to one against, every Hollywood schmaltzy film will tell you that the one is what matters, and these long shots do come in. But you’ve got to be in it to win it though and I’ve not bought a lottery ticket for years. I’ve not become a multimillionaire yet either – coincidence? I think not. So this was the week, I said, I would buy one. What’s the worst that can happen?

There are two Euromillions draws every week, and we both thought that £4 a week was a bit much to lose invest gamble. But hang on, if we form an alliance and share the costs, if we each bought a ticket but for one draw each, we are both in with a shout on both days for the same outlay. OK we will have to split the millions when we win but I can live with that. And so we decided that from next week we are forming a syndicate. An exclusive, two-person syndicate. Just us, no one else. Me and GAW – together at last. Okay, not romantically but it’s a nice feeling anyway.

Of course I won nothing on Friday, that goes without saying. But she texted me at 8am Saturday morning to say she had got two numbers and a star which paid her £5 (which she then lost on a horse in the National, but that’s another story). Hopefully she hasn’t used up all her luck on the lottery before we join forces. And if we do manage to match five numbers and two stars you will hear my cheers of celebration from the other side of the Atlantic.

  3. haha to your last comment!

    And this is awesome, nothing ventured, nothing gained. It’s an investment in a friendship, which could lead to more.. 😉

    • well we do seem to be alot friendlier lately but i put that down to the fact I’m not so busy at the mo so we have time to chat. Nothing’s gonna happen, however nice it would be if it did.
