Who is the luckiest girl in the world? Me?

Yesterday I found a four leaf clover! I'll admit I had been looking for a while. I get superstitious about stuff like that. So I found that and also three pennies on heads. So what is a girl to do when she finds all those wonderful omens? Buy a lottery ticket, of course! I only had a dollar on me so I went to the gas station and bought the only $1 lotto ticket they sold. And then I won $2! So, I traded those dollars for two powerball tickets. The jackpot was up to $200 million dollars! The rest of the evening I made plans for all the money. I picked out charities, picked out a car, decided what job I would have, scolded my boyfriend for his suggestion I buy two cars and not have a job... No, I was going to be very smart about the money. That meant I just HAD to win. I would do good things and keep on living life and just be a bit more financially comfortable.
And so, in a very anti-climatic way, I discovered... of course... I did not win the big jackpot.

The lesson I learned?

A four leaf clover is only good for ONE lottery ticket. Don't blow it on the small one.

Haha. But I'm feeling alright. It was a long shot, sure, but I really believed I could win. However, I think it's really scary to have that kind of money. It can be a burden. So maybe it's for the better.

Good luck...

Your day was still better. I've always wanted to find a four leafer.

I still remember the luckiest day of my life. I think I was like twelve. I hope more of those come around.
