Well, the big lottery drawing has come and gone, and once again, I didn’t win. That’s OK. Someone from our state did have the winning numbers, and will split the huge jackpot with 2 others. That makes it about 213 million bucks each. Not a bad haul.
I do play the lottery every week. I know my chances of winning aren’t even slim, but if I don’t buy a ticket, my chances are zero, zip, nada. What the heck. Besides, I feel destined to win someday. Probably the day before I get hit by an asteroid. But I’ll be a winner!
I do get a kick out of people that tell me they don’t buy lottery tickets until the jackpot gets over 100 million dollars. Sure I understand that–I mean why bother with a measly 12 million? You can’t even buy a large executive jet with that. Save that dollar for the really big bucks. I’m not making this up–I actually know people who tell me they won’t buy a ticket until the jackpot is over 100 million. If you don’t want to buy a ticket, just don’t buy one. But really–you’ll take a chance on 100 million but not on 12 million? Tell you what: When I win my 12 million (an I KNOW I will–it’s my destiny), I’ll buy you a lottery ticket every time the jackpot gets to 100 million. On me!
