I can't remember the last time I bought a lottery ticket. But with the payout at a billion dollars and no line at the gas station-convenience store, I couldn't resist a $4 "investment'' or probably a waste of money.
The good girl and I were discussing lump sum payment vs. annual payout. She said lump sum payment as most people do. But I read that for tax purposes the annual payout is a better option. By the way, I think if you get all but one number, you get a million. Hey, I'm not greedy. I'll take the million.
Instead of picking numbers, I took the ones the machine spit out.
And now I wait to see if there's a winner.
