With the recent news of a winning Powerball ticket being sold in Lafayette Parish worth over $55 million, people are speculating about who might be the winner.

I have put together this handy-dandy list of things to do if you think your neighbor won the lottery.

    Make A Return

    Return EVERYTHING you have ever borrowed IMMEDIATELY! (Even if it was a cup of sugar – return the cup, and include a new 5-pound bag of Domino sugar!)  Maybe, if they will forgive your dereliction of neighborly duties, they will cut you a piece of the pie!

    Have Them Over

    Invite them over for your annual Good Friday fish fry/crawfish boil. Be sure to go through their trash prior to the event and find out what kind of beer they drink and then have plenty on hand for the party. Maybe, if they see that you are a good person, they will cut you a piece of the pie!

    We Have The Same Eyes!

    Ancestry.com; Facebook.com; 23andMe.com; Tinder.com – use EVERY possible avenue to prove a connection! Maybe, if they see that you are family, they will cut you a piece of the pie!

    Get On The Payroll

    Start cutting their grass for them, or washing their car, or cleaning their (soon to be REALLY fabulous) pool. Maybe, if they see that you are a good, conscientious worker, they will cut you a piece of the pie!

    Relate By Proxy

    Find out if they have any close relatives who are single, and then try to hook up with them. Maybe, if you are a good in-law, they will cut you a piece of the pie!

    Get Desperate

    Follow them to the grocery store and, with a basket full of groceries, try to be right in front of them at checkout. When the cashier gives the total, start frantically searching for your wallet, in hopes that your neighbor will take care of the bill! Maybe, if they see you "in need" often enough, they will cut you a piece of the pie!
