One day before me and my cousins went off on our annual fishing trip we stopped at a drug store to buy a camera. Upon exiting the drug store there was a lucky lotto number machine. You know the type, pay your 25 cents and get your six lucky numbers. Well I shelled out and got 3,10 12 28 31 42. I started religiously playing those numbers in the Canadian 649 lotto. A few years later I was living in Edmonton Alberta working as a landscaper. I had just had a particularly tough day at work, got home tired, had a few drinks and wallowed in self pity at how my life sucked. I was living with a friend, he and I were aspiring musicians hoping to get our big break. That never happened either, at least not in music. Anyway my friend seeing me all depressed reminded me that it was Saturday and I hadn't yet bought my lucky lotto ticket. I just bellowed some drunken absurdity like "what's the F...en point! I never win anyway".
Well I'm sure you can guess. I did not buy my ticket that night but when I was looking through the paper the next day I saw the results. 3 10 12 28 31 42. It's a miracle I didn't kill myself right then and there!!!
2.3 million !!!
Well here I am years later with a solid job and a beautiful family. I learned over time that the self pity thing was pretty useless. Don't worry be happy.
I still play the 649
