Please Let Me Win The Lottery

The next lottery 649 draw is for $3,000,000. This isn't a huge sum by today's standards but it would do nicely. I'm thinking I could pay off my credit cards and still have some left over. Maybe I could even squeeze in a trip to Paris. 

But this isn't the lottery I'm talking about. I'm thinking more of the $30,000,000.00 type that would go a long long way. It often happens that really stupid people win these prizes -

"This won't change me. I'm keeping my job at the factory and might take the family to Disneyland for a little holiday, or buy a van".

There really should be a lottery blacklist. If you don't know how to use the money, you can't buy a ticket. Maybe some sort of IQ test to be filled out before you can spend your $2.00 to win -

If you win $30,000,000.00+ will you:

a). Share it with all your friends, family, acquaintances, and make a lot of people happy

b). Keep your day job and save it for emergencies

c). Reinvest it all in more lottery tickets 

d). Don't know

OK. I admit I made it too hard. 

I'd be a great rich person. Ask anyone.

I'd share the win with all kinds of people. A gift out of the blue would be exciting don't you think? Imagine if you received $100,000 from someone you met once in line at a grocery store. Wouldn't that be great? Or, if a Google or Twitter pal sent you $50,000 for no reason. Bill Gates should have thought of this. And wouldn't it be a boost to the economy? Hey, maybe I should run in the Federal elections. I have a new ticket to run on - The Lottery Ticket. Well, I'll worry about that when I win. 

The thing is, they never choose my numbers. Never. Why is that? It doesn't seem right to me. I'll try again anyway - not for me you understand, for everyone else. If I win a biggie, a lot of you will be hearing from me. Anyone leaving a snotty comment, however, will be out of luck.

By the way, I see that the chances of getting 6 out of 6 numbers is 1 in 13,983,816.  Seems reasonable. Maybe I'll buy two this week.


  1. My favourite way to drift off to sleep, is running through my shopping list of how I'm going to spend that £100 million I'll wake up in the morning to find I've won..

    In reality, it's unlikely - but in my dreams (ahhhhhhhhhhh)..!

  2. We think you're on to something! So nice of you to visit! Please come by anytime!

  3. I'll let you both know if I win!
