So last night I got a call from someone who told me they wanted to win the lottery. Okay, it was a little more complicated than that; she is a former student of the ‘religion’ I’ve been developing off and on for several years now. One of the things one can learn is … well… effectively how to bend reality to one’s desire. It’s fairly complicated, and the complexity is revealed in layers, but it is not necessarily difficult. Anyway, she called me because she was trying to realize for herself that she really did want to win the lottery (most people, for one reason or another, do not want to win the lottery; she has always wanted to be a self-reliant person who worked for what she got) … by talking to me about it. Which had the effect, intended or not, of my own desire for her to succeed, and yes, perhaps her own.
Anyway, today I got this email from her (name removed):

So I won the lottery last night.
Only I forgot to specify that I wanted to win the jackpot rather than
a couple of bucks. *laugh*
