“Seriously?” I laughed, pulling out the scratch-it lotto tickets.
I remember being mildly annoyed during birthdays past when I opened up my card to find lottery tickets. “How could my husband not know that I think this is a monumental waste of our money?” I would think to myself.
But yesterday was different.
Yesterday I realized this was his tradition – and five dollars spent in the name of tradition is five dollars well-spent in my book.
I smiled and chuckled and scratched my way to a $4.00 winning.
Grinning ear-to-ear he exclaimed, “Awesome! You can go buy four more tickets!”
One of these birthdays those $5.00 worth of tickets might get us somewhere.
For now, I have $4.00 in my pocket (sort-of) to blow as I wish.
Dear friends, have you ever bought a lotto ticket? And what do you think – should I go and buy four more?
