On the way to work this morning Victoria suggested that we play the lottery. “Its $166 million today, seems like a good time.” Now understand, we don’t play the lottery to win, that’s just crazy talk. We play for entertainment value. When we were younger we would go out an drop a cool Washington on a ticket and then spend all night talking about our fantasy future. As we got older, and started to live that fantasy, we did this less often. Still, a couple times a year, the mood strikes us and we splurge.
Then Vick said something that pretty much sums it all up. “If we won, I wouldn’t change anything. Well, maybe spruce the boat up a bit with upgrades, and leave sooner, but everything else would stay the same.” That, I believe, is the surest sign that we’re on the right track. If we won the lottery today, we would just do more of what we’re doing, faster.
Let the good times roll.
