The lottery sure gave me an education

Bingo! We are on our way. We have a 22.

By the time the numbers of 10 and 13 followed, we knew our fortunes had taken a turn for the worst. Of the 30 numbers we played in our five games, we matched just one, the first one, 22.

Yep, that’s quite an education.

Turns out, someone in Florida won the jackpot, and I’ve stopped thinking about beach houses in Hawaii, if only for a few minutes.

Still, we spent 10 bucks on the chance to win $590 million. It provided us a few minutes of fun and the chance to dream about the future. And, that’s not such a bad thing.
