I'm 56 today.......Ask me anything

My younger brother & his family gave me some instant lottery tickets, $8 worth. End of the day, won $56. Is that an omen?

2. Makes sense... in dog tickets, those $8 were $56. Which makes you 392 today.

4. Of course

it's an omen. Omens, like gold, are where you find them. The question is, what does the omen portend?

9. Yes there was. I'm sorry you weren't here to enjoy it...........

it was from the bakery, a whipped cream cake, 3 layers, 2 layers chocolate, 1 layer yellow, whipped cream icing, with cherries on top, and the sides of the cake had slivers of white chocolate and slivers of milk chocolate on the icing.

This was a real bakery, individually owned since the 1950's.

Delish.

Answer carefully because some people think this is really important.
