No, this isn’t a story about some escort service owner who fucked me years ago and came back to assert that we start anew after all the time has passed – effectively eliminating her debt to me with the excuse that enough time has passed for her not to have to pay what she owes. Nor is it about the cit employee who once upon a time made reference to “the statue of libertations” (I’m not kidding about that). This is about an expiring lottery ticket which today at 5 PM, will no longer be redeemable for the 63 million dollars it’s worth!
Yup! You read that right. Somebody bought a lottery ticket…a 63 million dollar winner…and apparently lost it. Or died…or something. And if he or she doesn’t cash it in today (sorry to repeat myself), it’s a dead issue. What makes the story especially interesting for me lies in where this lottery ticket was purchased: Chatsworth, California.
Chatsworth, California as it turns out, is the porn capital of the world! It’s a suburb of LA where all the porn-producing companies have their studios and warehouses. And it just makes me wonder whether some porn bimbo isn’t the person who bought that lottery ticket and then absent-mindedly lost or misplaced it. Makes perfect sense to me. I figure anybody who excels at dropping her cell phone in the toilet on an almost daily basis (an escort specialty) would be the one to discard a 63 million dollar winner.
Of course, we’ll never know. Not everybody in Chatsworth is affiliated with the porn industry. But it just seems curious that something like that could happen where it did. But really…I shouldn’t cast aspersions. I discarded all of my baseball cards from 1955. And I had hundreds of them! So who am I to talk?
