I don’t usually play the lottery.
I do think about playing it, every time there is an add on the radio or on the telly telling me how much money I could get by just purchasing one little piece of paper, I decide I am going to do it. I mean, why wouldn’t it? Who doesn’t want to exchange €4 for €4 million! But then, the add finishes and I totally forget about it. I get on with my jobs and I don’t think about it again. I never remember to buy that little piece of paper that will make me rich in an instant.
But sometimes I do remember. May 27th was one of those days. I kept hearing on the radio that the jackpot was an estimated insane amount of millions and I thought: Hey, you totally deserve to be rich. You’d be so amazing at it! You could do so much good and stuff… (that is so, like, totally, how my brain talks to me, like). So I actually, purposely went into the shop and I bought a ticket. Two actually.
The thing is, you really need to know your lotto to play. I mean, there are so many kind of lottos out there : Lotto, Lotto Plus, EuroMillions, EuroMillions Plus… I have no idea what the Plus does but by Toutatis I am playing that too just in case! I am going to win it all!!!
I usually get quickpicks so I don’t have to decide make many decicions. I don’t have to chose a particular date or the street number where i grew up… everything is left to chance. Complete and utter randomness. It’s up to the Universe to make me rich beyond my wildest dreams. No pressure Universe!
The tickets from the 17th of May are still on my wallet. I haven’t checked them yet. I don’t want to be disappointed.
I dared to dream. I dared to think that I could win. But that is the game. That is what we all want – a quick buck in the shape of a million or two… or just few thousands… I am not all that greedy…
I dared to dream… the dream of free money… what a nice dream…
And I don’t want it to end…
