Bought two lottery tickets today.

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.

  1. We don't do lottery either, but I've done it this week. I think its okay as long as the person isn't overdoing it; not 100 dollars a week or something.

    I like that "hey, we could be millionares" aspect of it. That brief hope, however small. I think that's worth the small cost. Talking about what you would do, who you would help.

    I bought a ticket last week for the 900 million. I won 12 dollars, so there was a return on the investment, haha.

    1. A return on your investment, no matter how small, is always a plus. And I agree that $100 a week would be a problem but a few bucks is just fun money.

    1. Remember the show The Millionaire back when a million was worth a lot more than it is today. Still, I'd take it. LOL.
