I’ll pretend to, anyway. Although this helps raise personal chill factor, it sometimes ends up having the opposite effect. Lottery fantasies, need I say more? No, but I will anyway or this would be a boring post. I had gone through this scenario many times before: “Ah, If I only won the lotto, everything would be so easy! Pay off my mortgage/loans, then what? I could get that [insert shit here] that I’ve always [reasonably] wanted.” What happens after that? Allocation. “How do I spread my winnings?” As if the feeling of winning the lottery isn’t awesome enough, you want to feel like a hero. So, make sure you leave a big money bag for each of your family members (well, not all of them) and close friends.

You must be careful with this, however. While it’s soothing to think about, when your fantasy reaches it’s peak reality will set in and hit you like a ton of bricks. You’ll be faced with the realization that you don’t even play the God damn lottery, how the hell are you going to win? After about 7 years of this I decided to start playing. One ticket, twice a week (Florida). If I’m going to get lucky, then well, that’s all I need.

Why are you still reading this? Go buy a lottery ticket before you forget again.
