The best-won wins of Val Thevictorian always go awry.
Oh, dear...remember way back on...um...WEDNESDAY, when Val had the good fortune to win $500? You may not have noticed, unless you scrolled back up to see the update on the story about my $200 win on Monday.
So there I was, pretty happy about my recent good fortune, thinking that my good deeds have put out some good karma to the universe...when actually, it was just foreshadowing from Even Steven.
On Thursday, the very day I cashed in my $500 winner, I picked up the mail and saw three insurance bills: $193, $190, and $99. That adds up to $482 for ORV (off road vehicle) insurance.
"Oh, dear," I thought. Or something similar. "There goes my big win to pay for the insurance on Hick's Gator, Scout, and Kawasaki."
And then Hick came home, and as I was telling him about the insurance bills, I noticed that the thermostat was set on COOL to hold at 73, and yet the temperature inside the house was 74. So the repairman came Friday and found that the fan motor had burned out, to the fee of $453.
Looks like I'm due for another big win before the month is over...
If Even Steven is really a fair kind of guy, you know.
Otherwise, I have to think that the insurance bills are a regular occurrence, just with questionable timing this year. And that Even Steven was generous enough to give me $247 profit off my two big wins.
The thing about Even Steven is...he's EVEN. So something else is about ready to break.
