I had a dream last night that my parents were trying to sell a house, so I came up with this great idea - we'd have a raffle.
I decided tickets would be $10 each, and we'd sell loads and we'd offload the house without having to deal with real estate agents or anything.
So the first person came and bought 10 tickets right away, and I was like "cool, see it's working"
and then no one else came.
I freaked out completely. I was like "oh my g-d what have I done, I'm forcing my parents to sell a whole house worth at least $180K for $100." So I sat there and cried, and woke up Y and told him to help me. Finally we decided that the best thing to do was to tell the lady who'd bought the tickets that someone else won, but she'd gotten the second prize - $100.
I woke up kinda freaked. I mean, what kind of stupid person would raffle off a house?! You'd have to realize that you'd have to sell some 20,000 tickets to make it a good deal. (though I suppose you could make the tickets $100 apiece and then you'd only need to sell 2000...)
Anyway, Yaakov always tells me to write down my dreams... so now you've all heard it... If you want to raffle off a house, you need to sell a LOT of tickets.
