OK, I admit it, I buy lottery tickets twice a week. I get one Cash Five ticket with the same numbers every time. I get three Lotto numbers, one of which is the same number every time and the other two are quick picks. Why do I play? I thought of quitting but if I did and my numbers came up I would be very, very disappointed and depressed, so I keep on buying them.
Last night, I almost won. Now, from what they tell me, almost is not good enough. I started to take notice when I checked the winning numbers on the official web site and the first two were matches on my first line of numbers. Now comes the almost amazing part, the last four numbers were only one off. What are the chances of that?!? Maybe I ought to frame that ticket. If you do the math, the chances of that happening is about the same as getting them all right. Well, I guess the chance of getting any six numbers would be the same as getting any other six numbers, but the chance of getting my six numbers seems to be impossible. Anyway, I am too old to spend all that money, right? WRONG!!! Now, you have a great day, you hear?
