Waking Up To Reality

He dreamt of winning the super lotto 50 million. After all the pain he had been through, the world and the hard labor sucked the life right out of him .

He felt he deserved more than what life had given him. Tom needed a vacation .

Without sounding too excited "Pardon me," said Tom T. Urkee..." "...can you tell me what this number is?"

The lady behind the till obliged "Would you like to verify your ticket? "

He had to make sure that it wasn't a mistake because he couldn't believe his numbers matched . The lady looked at him amazed his numbers were the same . 03, 07, 11, 15, 27,43.

Then the sound of his alarm clock went off
