Day 47: Lose the lottery
October 19, 2010 § Leave a comment
I’m sure no one feels this is a surprise. As you might remember, on Day 45 I bought my first Powerball ticket. I’ll be honest, I was feeling a little cocky when I walked up to the scanner today at the local Jewel-Osco grocery store. After having won a free trip to New York on Friday, I thought Lady Luck and I might be a match made in Heaven. Wrong. The digital green lights read: THIS IS NOT A WINNING TICKET. SORRY. Shucks. I was hoping to have $46 million to spend in New York this December. Maybe next year.
