Smiling with joy,
laughing hard as you enjoy.
So hard tears began to flow,
holding the million dollar check from the lotto.
Grabbing your forehead,
falling back on the bed.
Rolling around on the cover,
your disposition hard too recover.
Jumping up and down,
hopping all around.
Finally sitting,
no more work after quitting.

Getting on the telephone,
telling good friends prone.
Jumping in your car,
driving over to the local bar.
Drinking a few to celebrate,
not realizing you have to calibrate.
Leaving the bar tipsy,
picking up a hitchiking gypsy.
Ending up on foot,
because you got the boot,
After doing a good deed,
the other person didn't heed.
Now you bleed.

Out on a lonely road,
you're left alone to carry the load.
Trying to thumb a ride,
you almost lose your hide.
After getting ran over,
you lay in the hospital trying to recover.

Finally getting home,
you find all your valubles gone.
You call the police in anger,
the officer almost shoots you as a stranger.
You call your jealous brother,
he comes over with your mean mother.
They nurse you back to health,
then walk away with part of your wealth.

If things aren't bad enough,
you develope a bad cough.
Laying around real sick,
you try to recover quick.
Again you call your mean mom,
she walks in with your jealous brother at arm.
They help you get better,
then hand you a lawsuit letter.
Your mean mother retired,
your jealous brother got fired.
They blamed it on you,
then decided to sue.

Emotions multiplied-
happiness, agony, misery and strife.
This is just life.

Grady, I think you covered all the emotions in this one. LOL Something on this order is probably what happens to those who win the Lotto.

Love and peace, Patty

It's the old "what can happen next" senerio. Great stuff. Brings to mind the old song, "Why's everybody always picking on me?"
