I did it, I broke down and bought $20 worth of Powerball lotto tickets last night. I’ve caught myself drifting off into a vivid daydream while working around the farm since the missed jackpot drawing Saturday. I find myself planning for all the things I would buy, the people and horses I would help, and the places I would go if I won the jackpot.
The only issue is this is the first time I’ve bought a ticket even though I’ve been daydreaming for years. I guess the realization of “you have to play to win” sunk in. So in the event that I do win, the next Fab Freebie will be incredible!
