EntSun News/10761122
Dear Miss (Ms.) Manners: What would you do if you were sitting at the dinner table with your closet friends and family and you found out that you just won the giant jackpot? Please Miss Manners...Please let me know what I should do if I win.

SAN MATEO, Calif. - Dec. 18, 2018 - EntSun -- DEAR MISS (MS.) MANNERS: IF I GET A WINNING LOTTERY TICKET FOR CHRISTMAS, HOW DO YOU THINK I SHOULD  SHARE IT?
Both the Megamillions and the Powerball Jackpots are well over $250 Million dollars right now, and if one of your relatives gives you a lottery ticket for Christmas that winds up winning the jackpot, how do you think you should share it? Especially if you win when the winning numbers are announced at Christmas dinner?
1) Is there any established protocol?
2) Do I have to split it evenly with everyone there?
3) Do I have to sign a disclaimer?
Please Miss Manners, please let me know what to do.

DEAR MISS MANNERS...WHAT DO I DO IF UNCLE JOE GIVES ME A LOTTERY TICKET AND I WIN THE LOTTERY AT CHRISTMAS DINNER?

Dear Miss Manners:

I know that the hardest part of winning the lottery will be my guilt about how to share it with my friends and relatives.
*Will I have to give half of it to the person who gave me the ticket?
*What if I only give them a small percentage?
*Does everyone in my family deserve to get a piece of the pie?
*Is it okay to disconnect my phone and disappear if I win the big one?

(I know...everyone should have such problems like what to do with a winning lottery ticket, and now that the jackpots for both the Megamillions and the Powerball are well over $250 Million Dollars, what do I do if Santa Claus really does bring me a winning lottery ticket?

Please Miss Manners, what would you do if you were sitting at the dinner table with your closet friends and family and you found out that you just won the giant jackpot?
*Would you even tell anyone?
*Would you jump for joy?
*Would you tell your spouse immediately, or wait until later?.
*And if your Uncle Joe gave you that ticket, would you say, "Uncle Joe, can I talk to you for a minute?"

So, all of us should have such problems, and in the spirit of the season, if you don't want to cause any such dilemmas by giving someone you love a lottery ticket, you can give them a song about money called "Big Bucks."

"'Big Bucks' is a song about the hopes and dreams of making big money and the frustrations about not making big money." The song was co-written by Robert Barrows, President of an advertising agency called R.M. Barrows Advertising & Public Relations, in San Mateo California, and a musician named Gary Warren (currently in Sacramento, California.)

The song was released in 1999 to radio stations that played rap and hip-hop, and "Big Bucks" and another song on the CD, a satire about politics called "Run For Office," both got some airplay.

You can hear a FREE CLIP of "Big Bucks" at www.barrows.com/music.html and there is also a link on that page where you can download the song for 99 cents on iTunes.

"And, on your way to buy your lottery tickets, or in consolation if you don't win, at least you can treat yourself to a song called "Big Bucks," says Barrows.

(Let's see, 99 cents to download the song or 99 cents toward another lottery ticket? Decisions...decisions...decisions..)

SO, MISS MANNERS...Should I even consider giving a lottery ticket to someone, and what if they win? Will they feel obligated to share it with me?
*Do you think they should share it 50/50?
*And what if I win? Do you think I should share it 50/50 with the person who gave it to me?
*And what would you do if you won the lottery while you were sitting at the dinner table with your friends and family at Christmas?

DEAR SANTA...Please bring me a winning lottery ticket and please give me the guidance to know how to share it with my friends and family...(Oh, that's the other part of Christmas, not the Santa part, again,  what do I do if I win?)

AND, if you feel a little reluctant to give anyone a lottery ticket for Christmas, just in case they win and not you, at least you can give them an MP3 of a great song about money called "Big Bucks."

For more information about "Big Bucks," contact Robert Barrows at R.M. Barrows, Inc. Advertising & Public Relations at 650-344-4405.
And on your way to buy your lottery ticket...and to help treat that growing case of lottery fever...treat yourself to a Free Clip of "Big Bucks" at www.barrows.com/music.html, and if you win the lottery while you're still at the dinner table on Christmas, does Miss Manners have a cell phone number, too?
