I Win

Published by at 11:50 pm under Blog

Like a lot of people, whenever there’s a raffle or a draw of any type, I am oft heard bemoaning the fact that “I never win anything at these things“. And Tuesday night was no different.


As the final scores of the Father Ted Table Quiz were tabulated, we were just hoping to come in the top half of the 27 teams (we came 13th). The raffle began and we were all anxiously gripping our blue raffle tickets. Anto was convinced his two strips (11 to 15 and 16 to 20) would net him something great. It did not. I had no such confidence in my two (21 to 25 and 26 to 30).


In reverse order they drew out six tickets:


First one – yellow ticket…


Second – yellow ticket…


Third – yellow ticket…


Forth – yellow ticket…


Fifth – yellow ticket (at this point one table had won three prizes)…


The sixth ticket was drawn – at last, a blue ticket. There were cheers from all the blue tables. I yelped so loud with joy for the blue ticket that I didn’t even notice that ticket number 23 was called out. What? I won? Woohoo!


€75 voucher for Fitzers Restaurant – all mine. 😀

    Are you sure the draw wasn’t in the slightest bit rigged?

    @Lottie What? Go ‘way – it’s mine!

    @Anto And you cried little a little baby…that’s how I remember it anyway.

    @Chris The thought crossed my mind, but then I won and it was all ok again. 😀
