Before I even got out of bed this morning, the radio stated there were no Powerball jackpot winners in my state. Oh well, it was a nice fantasy for a few days but time to move on with life. The tickets I bought for Saturday’s drawing are still (I think) in the pocket of the jacket I was wearing on Sat, & since I bought them when I was in another state there’s none of that “local ticket wins $1 million” buzz. On the rare times I do buy tickets, I’m real bad about checking them once I know I didn’t win the jackpot. Maybe that’s because today was typical; I did check them & I didn’t have a single # across my $12 [del]investment[/Del] donation to senior citizens.
Do you bother to check your tix if you know you didn’t get the big prize? Right away or, meh, whenever you get around to it?
