I know, I know...the lottery is nothing more than a tax on the foolish, which is why I haven't bought a ticket in years and years. People who are better than me at math say that I am 250 times more likely to get hit by an asteroid than I am to hit the jackpot. Still, come on, half-a-billion dollars? What can I say--I guess I've found the number that piques my interest.
Besides, buying a ticket for the Mega Millions jackpot isn't the dumbest thing I've ever done. In fact, it's not even the dumbest thing I've done today. Originally, I'd planned to post a litany of the really, truly, exquisitely dumb things I have done, but on reflection, losing tonight's drawing should provide sufficient humility for one day. I'll tell you about the other dumb things later. Unless I get hit by an asteroid tonight.
