Power Up!


So, there’s this little game called the Powerball Lottery. You pick 6 numbers and pay two bucks to get a ticket with those numbers on it. Five white balls are drawn out of a drum with 69 balls and one red ball is drawn out of a drum with 26 red balls. If you get them all correct, you win. Easy, right? OK, I know you know how to play. Just wanted to make you aware that the prize is up to (and could be more than) $800 million dollars. $800. Million. Dollars. And the drawing is tomorrow (Saturday.)

I don’t really ever play the lottery. But, when the numbers get big like this, Mr. usually buys a ticket and we dream for just a tiny moment. We all know the odds are not in our favor. In fact, the odds are something like 292 million to one. There is a better chance of you becoming president. Or being crushed by a tipped over vending machine. Or dating a super model. Or being hit by a falling asteroid.

It’s OK, I’ll take those odds. After all, you gotta’ play to win…
