Usually these letters all go in the spam folder, but somehow this one made it into my inbox. When I saw it I yelled, "Oh my word!! I just won $5,000,000!!!!!"
Austin, who was sitting across from me jerked up and his eyes got all big. "REALLY?!"
So I read him this letter:

He said, "That's not our normal budget! We can invest in a house and sell it for more!
I didn't know Margaret was a millionaire!"
He is explaining it to Nicole right now and just said, "She has this widow business and she is passing it onto us. We'll just make money, money, money."
Nicole said, "So...you really believe this?" And he said, "OF COURSE I DO!! This is five MILLION dollars!!!"
