So I brought a lottery ticket today in hopes that it would indeed change my life?
I say that with a question because I think that it is something that people usually hope for when they play? (shoulder shrug)
So I am clearly just following the crowd (well trying too)
I have this thing that I rather wait until I am home and all settled in and then I bust out the lottery ticket and scratch away.
It’s been years it feels like since I last played but I think I’ve become delusion with I don’t know, everything, that I feel like I could actually win (who doesn’t?)
(I can definitely assure you that I am not an addict, I swear!)
It is just one of those things I don’t mind spending like 5 bucks on once in a while.
Just to get it out of my head and off my mind
I know they say that when you feel like playing those are the best times to play and have a better chance of winning but if that was the case wouldn’t we have all won something worth it every time?
lol NAHHHH, that makes way too much sense.
So anyways I got the ticket in a K Mart, I know like who still shops there? Is it even still a thing?
I only went in there to kill time (more like an hour and a half) while my car was getting an oil change and an inspection (…the struggle)
After walking through the store, seeing all these high ass prices for no reason, I finally made it back to civilization aka the main entrance/exit and saw the machine. It wasn’t the newer fancy ones that you can play the Power Ball on, but I ain’t picky
So I glance over the very slim pickings (they were literally like all out) and picked a $2.00 Monopoly ticket, I could of went more and got the $5.00 one but I didn’t feel the need to splurge.
So obviously being cheap I went with the $2.00 option, went outside. Sat on a bench
(I think it was for the bus) and debated for a few minutes if I wanted to collect my winnings now or wait for a surprise later.
I got antsy and scratched it there.
(I always scratch the regular numbers before revealing the winning numbers)
Scratched the first row, then the second, didn’t get the bonus so I scratch off the winning number of 5 and 7.
I looked over my ticked about 3 times (I don’t know why, it was literally like 10 numbers total) and didn’t win a god damn thing.
Was I surprised? Nope, not at all
At least it was only 2 bucks!
As the groundhog from PA says: “Keep on Scratching!”
