I know what you’re thinking right now.
I have some psychic abilities that I don’t usually talk about.
You are thinking…
That you already knew that PhilBillPaul is LUCKY…
Because he’s married to ME.
Hey, next time I share my psychic ability, please don’t be so slow to respond.
Okay, on to the REAL reason PhilBillPaul is so lucky. Remember in January when he missed this golden opportunity that might have changed our life?
He got a second chance this week and sent me an email along with the forwarded message.

Good Day ;
We have been waiting for you since to contact us for your Confirmable Bank Draft of $850,000 United States Dollars which my husband kept for but we did not hear from you since that time. Then I went to the bank to confirm if the draft has expired or getting near to expire and Mr. Franklin Eric the Director Bank of Africa told me that before the draft will get to your hand that it will expire. So I told him to cash the $850,000 USD UNITED STATES DOLLARS to cash payment to avoid losing this funds under expiration as I will be out of the country for a 3 Months Course and I will not come back till end of May 2009.
What you have to do now is to contact the FEDEX COURIER COMPANY as soon as possible to know when they will deliver your package to you because of the expiring date.For your information, I have paid for the delivering Charges and Insurance premium.
The only money you will send to the Courier Company to deliver your Consignment direct to your postal Address in your country is ($105.00 US) being Security Keeping Fee of the Courier Company so far.Again, don’t be deceived by anybody to pay any other money except $105.00 US Dollars. I would have paid that but they said no because they don’t know when you will contact them and in case of demurrage.You have to contact the FEDEX COURIER COMPANY now for the delivery of your Draft with this information bellow;
Contact Person: Dr. Jerry Mike
cell phone +229-9898-xxxx
Finally, make sure that you reconfirm your Postal address and Direct telephone number to them.

Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to be home on Thursday so he will have to work out a different delivery date.
Feel free to scroll back up and review the lines I highlighted in bold.
Because they are my very favorites lines.
Plus I love words and I always love to learn a new word. I’m the nerd who still does “Word Power” in Reader’s Digest every month. I don’t remember ever learning the word demurrage. I had to look it up.
1. the detention in port of a vessel by the shipowner, as in loading or unloading, beyond the time allowed or agreed upon.
2. the similar undue detention of a railroad car, truck, etc.
3. a charge for such undue detention.
In addition to the fact that as soon as Phil can arrange the package delivery and our family financial struggles will be over, I’ve added a new word to my vocabulary.
Oh, and don’t even try to make arrangements for the package delivery, I jumbled the codes so you cannot call the FedEx Courier Company and try to steal our box full of money.
Lucky and smart. That’s us.
Anybody else have a lucky week?
