Well, Friday arrived with the news that three Power Ball tickets have been sold. Unfortunately, none of them were in my area. Not that I care about others winning but it is sure knowledge that I finished out of the money. Of course, I could have just looked at the numbers to understand I will not be loaded with money. It just seems easier to have the information that the winning tickets were sold somewhere else. Also, by not looking at the numbers the idea that there could sill be a million bucks for five matching numbers. I could use a million. It’s not a billion but certainly more than I will earn writing. Which brings us to this week’s JohnKu that talks about being disappointed. I think all of us want to avoid disappointment for as long as we can. I guess I better put on my big boy pants and look at the numbers and face the fact that a million isn’t going to be mine either. Also, maybe next time I should not buy a quick pick. Who’s to say the Powerball machine knows how to avoid quick picks. I’m just saying.

There’s a fevered pitch,
Before every big event. . .
Suckered every time.
