Since I’m (DeAnna) teaching Kindergarten now, I get to enjoy a 4 days a week schedule with Wednesdays off. This morning while grocery shopping, I selected our preferred powdered milk package and was stopped by a person stocking the shelves. I thought she asked me what I was searching for, so I promptly responded for the item I was having difficulties finding. She told me no and said, “le lait” (the milk). I said that I already had le lait. She took the package of milk out of my hand and started to peel tape off the back of it. She scratched a little scratcher area and said, “Gagner!” I knew that gagner means winner, but I was very confused about the whole thing. A person with me was very excited and started clapping. The lady went to the back of the store and returned with a little metal box that has a selection of geometry tools in it. I gladly accepted and left the store with my cadeau (gift). As I looked at the store leaving I saw a large sign in the window advertising that during the month of September the Bridel milk brand is having a game of scratch to win. It makes me laugh to think I won a prize while purchasing powdered milk.
Way to go DeAnna. You’ve always been a winner!
From childhood school carnival prize winning to being crowned Leeton Fair Queen to a scratch-off package of powdered milk…you have a knack for being at the right place at the right time! Love, Mom
