So You Won the Mega Millions
Last week we were all going through our minds just what we would do with 640 million bucks if we would win the Mega Millions drawing. I’d buy the house I have been looking at in Clearwater, Florida and then I would buy the adjoining beach. Oh, what the heck, let’s just buy the whole place. Dorsey, Florida replaces Clearwater Beach. It’s got a nice ring to it doesn’t it? It’s funny how people won’t buy a lottery ticket to win a “measly” 3 million bucks but they will spend big for the 640 million dollar jackpot. Even though your chances are better going after the smaller jackpot. I am just as guilty. I bought 5 tickets to win big last week and had a combined total of two numbers come up from all 5 games. How bad is that? When I was buying my tickets at the Shell Convenience store at 24th and State I asked the clerk if he was a little busy with lottery ticket sales. He responded that he had just started working at 5 that afternoon but had already sold over $1200 worth of tickets. It was 6:15pm when I asked him. Not a bad take for a 75 minute time period. I took my tickets thinking I actually had a chance to win it all. It was not to be. Gee, I guess I could have claimed I had won and gone on national TV like that woman did in Maryland. I could have said I bought my ticket in Red Bud, Illinois. That would have caused quite a stir in Q-town. The woman in Maryland turned out to be a hoax. If she tries it again, I hope she wears a different hat. The one she had on was not too flattering to say the least.
