You Gotta Be In It To Win It

I wanted to be like the luckiest guy in Georgia; so I bought a lottery ticket. In Georgia.

Obviously, Georgia isn't any luckier a state than anywhere else in the country, but I figured if this guy could win more than once, my odds might be pretty good.

No luck. I went to the website to check on the winning numbers and as usual, I didn't have even one.

Who wins these things? I mean, I know people win because we hear about it on TV and read about it - especially in the local paper where it happened, but what the freak?? Why don't I ever win?

I should have better odds than most people because I can buy a lottery ticket in every state I travel through. Although, I don't do that. Perhaps I should because as an old lottery advertisement once said, You Gotta Be In It To Win It.

I'm going to get right on that and buy tickets at every place I stop. After all, what's a dollar when the chances of winning millions are just a scratch away??
