There are a million ways to almost win the lottery. We almost won it on Monday.
I spent 5 bucks on a MegaMillions ticket (it was up to 100 million) and, if you counted all of the numbers on all of the tickets, we’d have had a Megaball +3. Yeah, yeah, that’s only fifty bucks, but, hey. Fifty bucks. (As it turns out, the system itself decreed that we only won a dollar.)
I suppose, as ways to almost win the lottery, that’s better than standing in front of the guy in line who bought the winning ticket, standing behind the guy in line who bought the winning ticket, getting all of the Megaball numbers incremented up (or down) one, or (my favorite) getting all of the Megaball numbers for the wrong drawing.
I mean, sure, it’s pretty much a waste of money to buy a ticket or five every time the lottery gets over 100 million… but the daydreams are so very much better that way.
You can get your daydreams about paying off debts, paying off parents’ debts, paying off siblings’ debts, paying of besties’ debts, setting up college and/or retirement accounts out of the way and still have enough money left over to actually daydream about throwing money around rather than just having daydreams about sitting down at a desk with an accountant for 3 weeks straight. Which, as daydreams go, is not worth a dollar.
But Megamillions is up to $150. So the daydreams are going to be even better than last week’s.
So, in addition to buying a Megamillions ticket, we’ve got a chock-full-to-overflowing weekend. Friends have flown in from out of town and we’re playing poker tonight, tomorrow is errands and more errands followed by dinner and gaming at a friend’s, and Sunday is a family day spent celebrating the last quarter’s birthdays (note to self: pick up toys for the nephews and movie gift certs for the Mother-In-Law). That’s one of those weekends that makes you look forward to Monday because it’s less stressful, I tell you what.
So… what’s on your docket?
