I Won! I Won! I Won!


I won!  I won!  I won the 649 Lottery!

Well, that is not entirely accurate.  I won $110.90 of the five-million-dollar prize.  To be precise, I won 0.00002218 % of the five-million jackpot.  I had four out of the six winning numbers.

Being the anal-retentive guy I am, I keep track of the money I spend on lottery tickets.  From January 1st to June 30th, I spent $218.00 on tickets.  That is about $36.00 per month.

On July 1st, I won $110.90.  Should I rejoice?  I am still out $107.10 (218 – 110.90).  Are lottery tickets a good investment?

Lottery tickets buy the hope of winning lots of money.  Lots and lots of money.  Although lots and lots of money cannot buy happiness, it can be one helluva down payment.
