Nothing Has Changed

I did not win all or even part of the $640-million Mega Millions jackpot.

That's a LOT of Money

But it was sure fun daydreaming about how I would spend all of that money.

One good thing about living in Virginia, by law there’s a certain percentage of profits that must got to K-12 public schools in Virginia.

The crazy-big jackpot generated about $22 million for the schools.

I don’t feel too bad about having spent $9.

Wanna know what’s sad, though?

You have to match all five of the numbers drawn plus the mega ball. So there are six numbers, total, per line.

For my $9, I bought a total of 54 numbers.

I checked our tickets last night. After comparing all of my nine tickets with 54 total numbers, I discovered that we only had ONE of the numbers.

The good news? I am still the same, old, modest me. Not poor, but not filthy rich by any stretch.

Which means I need to hit PUBLISH on this post and get to work.

Did any of you have better luck than me?

  1. Only one matching number? That’s pretty bad, but it at least it wasn’t as bad as the guy I heard about who was one off for all the numbers (if the winning numbers were 4, 13, 20, 27, 43, 31, his numbers were 5, 12, 21, 28, 44, 32). Do you know how frustrating that would be?!
