Idaho Pick 3. Tonight. Those Double 2's have been absent for so long, so I started playing 'em a couple weeks ago. I played 225 SEVERAL TIMES only a week ago.
So today it occurred to me: Hey, wouldn't it be weird if the Double 2's happened and it was a Date Match, 225?
But I never bought the ticket. I thought that would be JUST SILLY. SILLY, SILLY, a bit too coincidental. Ha.
Exact Date Match happens how often... twice a year, maybe?
So there goes my money. I'm betting someone else was smart enough to stare Coincidence in the face and laugh, all the way to the bank. Good for them.
