lotto

i know it's silly & fruitless, but i often daydream about winning the lottery. i rarely buy a ticket & i almost never go to the casino, but i just can't seem to help myself. oh, how satisfying it would be! first i'd pay off all my bills (private college loans! grad school!), then quit my job, pay off a friend's school debt (we have a pact if either of us wins), take care of my parents & do a bit of traveling (a couple months?). i would be one of the few well-adjusted powerball millionaires. unlike those who succumbed to the lottery curse, i'd live the rest of my life on $50-60k per annum with a few splurges here & there.

yep, i've got it all planned out. but first i 'spose i have to buy a ticket.

I think the best part about buying the lotto tix are the lovely fantasies that come with...it's like a little mental vacation.

In case you do win, one of my old profs specializes in helping winners make a life plan with the winnings.

sb-i hope one day i have reason to ask your prof's name!
des-i only have one pact. i figured if i made too many and actually won, i wouldn't have any money left after i gave it away!

I feel like I think about this once or twice a week as well. Ah, to dream.
