    You use that word a lot. I do not think it means what you think it means.

    You were right. Carpooling. And TWO accidents causing delays. Bummer that I missed you.

    G'night, BF! Sweet dreams.

    Hah, that's funny, I've had Princess Bride on the mind all day, and then folks here go and watch it.

    Night, BF.

    Isn't it funny when things like that happen? Happens to me a lot and yet I'm still shocked when it occurs. Like, "I was JUST thinking about that!"

    You're doing it wrong, Bos. If you've been thinking about the lottery, then someone else around you should win it. You need to think about someone close to you winning the lottery.

    And then buy a ticket.

    Why would I waste a perfectly good dollar?


    Actually, I have considered playing. I figure some day I will buy just one ticket. Either I win, or I don't. That's as far as I am willing to go when it comes to the lottery.

    And it kind of needs to be a dollar I've found on the street, not something I had to earn.

    Only times I've played are when people buy me scratchoffs or that time a while ago when the lottery was a few billion. Figured there wasn't much harm in trying with the cash that high. I'm not willing to just throw my money away on a gamble otherwise.

    Any time the jackpot is over $50 Million, I buy a ticket and w few days of dreaming.

    As a retirement plan, it seems more likely than depending on Social Security and Medicare.

    I won money, sheepy! Last time I got a scratch-off (I only buy them about once a year, and only the dollar ones) I won $3! It was awesome!

    ... And how much had you spent on them, prior to that?
