Almost Doesn't Count in the Lottery Either

I thought I won $300 in the lottery. I had three of the winning numbers, and one of them was the Powerball number. When I read about it online, it said "three numbers with powerball" and "three numbers without powerball" and gave the amounts. I misinterpreted the preposition and thought I won $100 with the power play that multiplied it by 3. No, it meant three numbers plus the powerball. So I got $7 for having two numbers and the powerball multiplied by the power play which equaled $21. I won $12 not long ago which I used to buy this ticket, so now I'll buy another one with this money. Maybe I'll win that $23 million I have plans for. I was so excited there for a little while.

Reminds me of myself and writing contests. I pay a fee, but never win the prize. If I did win, I would sink the money into other contests.

Joy, thanks so much for including my blog in your blog roll. I have done the same with yours, and will visit daily. Mahalo (Hawaiian for thanks) to Sylvia for pointing me in your direction.

I won five hundred once and that was very exciting! Don't you love that rush when you think you've won. Only to find that you didn't. It sucks.

We had a $20 million one last night. Still haven't checked the tickets. Do you have those occasional stories on those that won multi million dollar amounts and are now back on benefits? My priorities if I won millions - childrens' education, cut back on work, house renovation, animal charities (that's YOU, RSPCA), invest for kids' future, then perhaps a blogger reunion - you know who I'm talking about. But where would we meet?

Joy said...

Yes, we have those stories about lottery winners who become destitute, have bad family relationships, etc. My priorities are similar to yours: trust funds for grandchildren for education, money/investments for son and daughter, new house for me, travel, blogger reunions, and a foundation set up for scholarships or something.

I'd like to have reunions with different groups of bloggers in various places - Europe, NYC, New Orleans, Vancouver, and Australia. I plan on winning $23 million.

Keep playing! Can't win if you don't play! I have won around $25,000 over the years, biggest amounts were $2,800, $5,000 and $10,000, with lots of lesser prizes as well. But, of course, I've spent quite a lot on lotto over the years, too. The jackpot in our national lottery is a record $49 million for Wednesday night. I will be sure to have a few tickets on that draw!

Big hug!
