I won the lottery! Not

What, again? We didn’t win the big jackpot, and despite buying lottery tickets with the same numbers on and off for 35 years, we still haven’t gotten the millions of dollars that would set us up for the rest of our lives.

They say the lottery is a tax on the mathematically challenged, but I know enough math that I do understand the odds, so the less flattering description — that the lottery is a tax on stupidity — is more appropriate in my case.

On the other hand, I’ve never gambled to the point where I can’t pay the bills, so there’s that.
