… a blue-haired woman appeared on the other side of the glass. Dolly Pearson, a professional busybody and all-around snoopster. Everyone within a two-mile radius of our street called her Snoop Dolly Dog.
The lottery office had an armed police officer, and video cameras on the walls. Three employees worked on the other side of what appeared to be bullet-proof glass. The lottery was serious business.
A pen sat next to a notepad to his right. A coffee mug on top of a coaster. Lots of elbow room for working on his laptop. He was organized. He was clean. Adam was not a normal man.
This has been amazing with a capital A and a zing!
I’m President of the Frozen Buns Club… I think it should be illegal to be outside when the temperature is lower than your age.
Rich Amooi is a recent discovery for me, this is only my third time reading his work and all three have been a delight. His stories are a pleasure to read, easy to follow, and thoughtfully detailed with cleverly amusing observations, relevant issues, and likable and endearing yet imperfect characters. Dying to Meet You was a light yet observant and perceptively written tale with a quirky and interesting cast of players.
Liz was a recognizable character to most of us, she was a career teacher, honest, prideful and stubborn, and rigidly set in her routines – she had been eating the same salad for eight years. She made plans and stuck to them, as she didn’t like surprises. Then she hit the motherload with an astronomical mind-blowing lottery win but soon after learns she may have only months to live without a difficult to find bone marrow match. Advised by her doctor to make a bucket list and do some good with her remaining time, she promptly sets off to do just that. I enjoyed her travel adventure; her bucket list was similar to my own. I confess to coveting her first class accommodations and personal jet, as well as the hunky sweet pilot and fun first officer. I adored this story and was stoked that Liz generously used her winnings to assist others along the way in the most meaningful and sincere manner she could.
