My Saturday morning went south the moment I found out I had not become a multimillionaire overnight.
Oh, I knew a single Mega Millions lottery ticket wouldn’t give me a real chance at Friday night’s record-setting $654 million jackpot.
But I didn’t have just one ticket.
Last week, 20 of my fellow Addison Independent employees and I each threw $2 into an office pool. While one ticket offered only a 1-in-75-million chance of winning, we had 42.
It was all we could do not to clean out our desks Friday afternoon.
