That Won’t Happen Unless I Win the Lottery

Comments (4)

You know the phrase – it’s said with some disdain, frustration, disappointment, or dejection.

Well – it happens. My partner Heidi Roizen’s assistant (Mary Bush’s) father-in-law Chuck Bush just won the $44m California Saturday jackpot ($17m lump sump payment after taxes.) I’ve never met Chuck, but Mary is awesome and my understanding is that Chuck is too. So – good people do win these things.

The next time someone groans out this phrase, tell them to be optimistic – it could happen (of course, you have to “suit up, show up, and play the game” also, but that’s a different metaphor.)

    i prefer the related phrase “buying a ticket does not materially increase your chances of winning”.

    though at the end of the day, given the plethora of progressive taxes, i don’t have any problem with a regressive one now and then.

    doody!
