Mega Millions

I am usually not a gambler, and when I do have the rare opportunity to gamble, I am very conservative. The other day when a coworker asked me for $2 to get into the Mega Millions Lottery, I didn't hesitate to hand over the cash. And it's amazing I even had any cash with me! We didn't win the Tuesday drawing, but I have since handed over another $2 to get in on the $207 million drawing for Friday.

I don't even know what the rules are. I just hand over my money and when I come to work the next day, I ask if we've won. I know the chances are slim, and that I have to share my winnings with at least six other people but can you imagine!?!? I would get over 15 million dollars! 

I decided a long time ago if I ever hit the lotto, the only people I will hand cash to will be my immediate family. That includes my mom and dad and sister, mother and father-in-law and my brother-in-law. The rest, I'm keeping, along with my job. Yeah, that's right, I'll work but only until I don't want to do what I do anymore. I'll probably always work, but maybe when I am rolling in dough, I can do something I want to do. Like volunteer, for Big Brothers Big Sisters, Last Chance Rescue and any other organizations that need me. You can always hand them cash, which is nice, but the money in addition to volunteering will always be priceless.

Keep your fingers crossed! The drawing is tonight!
