Walking down the street, you encounter a folded piece of paper on the sidewalk. You pick it up and read it and immediately, your life has changed. Describe this experience.

I know that this is to be a flight of fancy, but really, what are the odds? I have had a few immediate random thoughts such as "LAURIE I AM NOT YOUR FATHER" as a spoof but then it hit me, that piece of folded paper would actually be so painful for me because I love my father and I would never want another one. My father passed 10 years ago and there isn't a day that goes by that I don't miss his voice, his presence and just him. So that rift on Star Wars kind of backfired on me.

What else could be on that folded piece of paper? The common fantasy of winning toms of money is a life changer, but gradually over time I have come to realize that over the top sums of money isn't what I want. I only ask to be comfortable and be able to provide a secondary education for my two children and plan for a retirement with my hubby.

Perhaps the piece of folded paper could say that Random Publishing accepted my book and is prepared to send me on a cross country book signing tour along with the requisite talk show appearances. That would be a nice life changer, meeting new people who would be curious to read what I had written and I would get to meet the talk show hosts that I enjoy watching such as Kelly Ripa and Michael Staham, Jimmy Fallon and my favorite, Craig Fergeson. It would definitely be a lot of fun.

I definitely wouldn't mind finding that last piece of folded paper.
