I came home just before lunch today to pick up my wallet. As I walked through the door, I heard the end of a message being left on my answering machine.
It was the health centre.
Insert groan here. I just about walked away from the machine, to let it drone on in my absence … when I heard the words:
“Free plane ticket”
My little “free-shit is good-shit” antenna went up, and I quickly commited the number to memory, skipped to my bedroom phone and dialed.
Turns out way back in the fall when I got my flu shot, I was entered into a draw for a return plane ticket on Kivalliq Air.
Six months later… it turns out I won!
So now I have to figure out what to do. Do I take a mini-vacation to Winnipeg this weekend (and postpone the garage sale I had planned?), or do I try and sell the ticket here.
I’m not really itching to be down south right now. I mean it would be nice, for sure. But I don’t *need* to go. And I don’t have the *NEED* to spend money either. I’ve got some big purchases in my near future.
But it could be nice to go on a little mini-vacation… except that I’ll be on permanent vacation in 2.5 weeks time.
I don’t know. What would YOU do?
