        Maybe this is an odd question but as I was driving home today it popped into my head. Why do I want to win? Is it really for the money? Or because of some other lack in my life?

        We have all been lucky and unlucky in various ways. I've been lucky with the necessities of life but as far as personal satisfaction? Yikes! there's room for improvement, as I'm sure with all of you. Maybe I'm odd but for me, I would just be happy to win AT something, it doesn't have to be the lottery but since that is one of my main passions, I tend to focus on it more then other things at the moment.

        What about some of you folks? Is winning money the only objective? Or would just winning "at something" fill some sort of emptiness in your heart?

         

        Thanks to all. 

        To be honest about it, I'm in it to win it for the most part (95%) and to win at something the other 5%. I wouldn't be playing the lottery for any other reason but to win it! I don't think many play it for the fun of it and not think about winning it! But if you are one of those few who play the lottery just for the fun of it and hoping not to win it, you can just send me your money instead! I'll put the extra money to good use by buying more PB or MM tickets!

        Keep dreaming the impossible dream, it just may come true! Thumbs Up
