I found my purse right where I had left it. (Perhaps I am lucky afterall) The ticket turned out to be a $4.00 winner! So, I hoofed it over to the local "Everything Store" up the street to cash in for my prize.
Then what? Buy more tickets, of course. This month is awesome, I have an excuse to play the lottery!
Turns out the two scratch-offs I bought were both winners as well. One for $1.00 and one for $5.00. I hope I am as lucky with the $1.00 left that I spent on the PowerBall. And don't tell, but I got an extra lottery ticket, a Hit 5 ticket. Both drawings are tonight, and you'll hear either way.
Here's to hoping I win more to pay for the textbooks I have to buy. What the hell happened since I was in my undergrad? Did books really cost $150.00 - $250.00 each back in the 1990's? I don't think so. But then again, I went to the #1 party school back then (although I have found no such reference on the world wide web), so maybe I just don't remember.
