Stop Touching Things

Now that I'm a millionaire...

It turns out that the humanitarian efforts put forth by Howktown have not gone unnoticed.  My concentrated effort to make sure that chocolate is recognized as SUPER. My new "Chocolate and French Fry" diet plan for depression. My reliance on STREET SMARTS, because history is just DUMB... it has paid off... FINIALLY!

I didn't even see this coming, but this morning I got the email.

Sheikh Mahmoud Alzammar made you a beneficiary in his WILL. He left the sum of Three Million, and twenty-five thousand British Pounds (£3, 025, 000) to you in the Codicil and last testament to his WILL. According to him, this money is to support your humanitarian/ medical help/ orphanage activities and to help the poor and the needy in our society.
I knew it! The Sheikh and  I go way back. Yeah back when Dave (that's what I call him for short) were hangin' on the outskirts of the Emmerites talking about what we'd like seen changed in the world, he really identified with my western sense of French Fry importance. I'm really not surprised that he remembered me, but to this extent.. I'm flabbergasted.

I decided I should probably get some better plates to eat my fries and chocolate on, so I started spending the inheritance already. I'm sure once my check clears for transaction fees of $200,000 (a small fee considering the 3M I'm  getting in return) I'll start seeing the checks rolling in and these plates will be covering my dinning room table.

I've just got this one for now... but rest assured. It's getting all presidential here in Howktown.
