Why Is It...

when I buy a lottery ticket I always have expectations of winning?

I know the lottery is tax for people who can't do math - I know the odds of me winning any amount of money let alone the millions of dollars for the big jackpot are ridiculous. Yet every time I buy a ticket and subsequently check the numbers I am disappointed when I haven't won.

And usually the longer I wait to check the numbers the more disappointed I am - because I'm just sure that old ticket is a big winner and I have been silly letting it age on my desk.

"A dollar and a dream" = great marketing!
