Each week we will bring you a refreshing escape where your mind can wander in a thoughtful story as you visit wonders yet to be considered. At the end of every show, we will leave you with a quality question to ponder. This week's host is Katie M. Reid with a original story she wrote called, Lottie wins the Lottery. Take a beat, take a breath, and listen in!
Lottie wins the Lottery
Lottie was late again. She grabbed her coffee from the formica-counter top and hurried down the stairs of her tri-level home, willing the steaming beverage, with two creamers and one sugar, not to escape its barrier.
She stepped over stray toys and an overstuffed school backpack. She had trained herself to avoid eye contact with the cobwebs and dust that collected in the corners of the stairs.
Lottie headed back up the stairs to retrieve her binder for work. The one she had put down in order to stir her coffee. The coffee which she was eyeing like a hawk, so she didn’t spill on her blazer.
Why didn’t I listen to my mother-in-law when she tried to talk us out of a tri-level. So many stairs! I mean my calves look pretty good but, even though I hate to admit it, she was right. How will this set-up be practical in retirement?
