well, I I threw caution to the wind and bought a Powerball ticket this evening. Woth only an hour and a half to spare. The grocery store I usually shop at had posted in "out of order" sign on the machine. Seems that it had been overwhelmed I guess. So I went to the nearby drugstore, and it also had an out-of-order sign. I began to think this was a sign from above. Don't waste your money. You shouldn't be gambling anyway.
But I couldn't resist. One of the store clerks came over and helped me buy a ticket. She said the machine has been acting up but the worst that would happen would be that they would have to refund my money. So I gave her my $2 and I bought a quick pick. Now I have my numbers. I promised the clerk i would share of I win.
The thing about the lottery is it is like buying a dream. It is giving yourself a chance to fantasize what it would be like if I have all the money I ever needed. I doubt that I would win but you never know! So at least for the next hour until the actual drawing, I will be dreaming about what life would be like with more money than I can even imagine having. I like to think I will be benevolent and generous. I'm not sure exactly what I would do but I'm sure a lot of people would have some very good ideas.
Anyway the deed is done and I wait. Fantasies are flowing through my head. I have to think that I probably would keep it under wraps for a while. It would be is wickedly fun to be fantastically wealthy and have no one know it.
So here we go. Shouldn't be long. And in the meantime happy dreaming! Got your numbers?
