The Big Prize, by Russell Conover

Robert was ecstatic when he learned he’d won the office’s raffle. Even better, the prize was a new car! His wheels were a bit aged, so this prize came at just the right time.

When he picked it up, though, his jaw dropped. The car had huge wings on both sides, and looked ready to blast into space. Befuddled, he asked the attendant.

“Indeed,” was the response. “This car can go to outer space as easily as to the store for milk. Enjoy!”

Robert’s smile was huge. “My trip to Pluto will finally happen!” he thought. “Think of the possibilities.”
