Well, I Had One Number on the Powerball Last Night
I very rarely buy lottery tickets, mostly because I rarely have cash on me and, when I do, I try to hold onto it as long as possible. However, the jackpot on the Powerball has reached a high enough number where I felt investing the $2 I won on a scratch off (a Christmas present) wouldn't hurt.
Predictably, I didn't win anything. I checked the numbers earlier today and I had one (the number 18).
The ironic part of it though (which is also a bit sad) is having one number drawn is officially the closest I've ever come to winning the jackpot. Up until this point, I don't remember ever purchasing a lotto that even had that many numbers drawn.
In other words, you would be wise not to ask me to pick lottery numbers for you.
