And no, I did NOT win the lottery. Again.

First of all, I want to make it perfectly clear that I do not ordinarily play the lottery.  After all, I have my standards.  And my standards usually start somewhere around the $100 million mark.

Second, North Carolina did not even have a lottery until about ten years ago.  North Carolina's whole take on the lottery was that God would smite them if they led folks into temptation (which in this instance would be gambling).  It wasn't as if God didn't have plenty of reasons to smite them PRIOR to 2000, what with the whole slavery-segregation-KKK stuff happening, not to mention that close relatives can still marry if they choose to do so.

But I am kinda bummed that I didn't win.
Because a hundred million after taxes could buy a lot of that liquor I've been begging for.

I never buy them unless the jackpot is over 100 million.

and since I've never been to Arizona or Missouri, I didn't win either.

Bummer.

I think the word "smite" is underused in conversation. Our big Lotto of 50 million is tonight.....wish me luck, sista!

Well...I was pretty excited when I heard someone from Missouri won....but then..it wasn't me and I didn't care anymore. But..maybe if I dig deep enough..I'll find that I'm related to that winner guy. Oh....and I got an email yesterday saying if I would just do a post about them, I could have free eye glasses. I thought of you.

My father doesn't play until the pot is enough to change one's life...he and I have very different opinions on what that number is!

Cases of Liquor! Brilliant. I better add that to my "lottery winning must have list".

My threshold is about $100. Or 16 jars of Nutella. Or 2 sale-priced Eddie Bauer sweaters (size XL TALL).
