Tonight is not my night (if the ticket I lost won)

 

Stopped at a service plaza on my way from Maryland to Pittsburgh....hit the ladies, bought a ticket, then hit Starbucks for a hot cup of wake-me-up. That was why I stopped, too <snip> stubborn and cheap to sleep over when home is just 4 hrs away...Ha!

 

Well get to my car and boom....can't find the ticket. Went back twice to look for it, but it was a little breezy so I am sure it is gone with the wind.Bash

 

So if the powerball is 19, and the winning ticket was bought at the Midway service plaza...then just know I will be in bed with the bubble guts for the near foreseeable future.ConfusedConfusedPukePuke

If that ticket did not win....then Wednesday had better be my day for all the sleep lost tonight.Banana

          I waited until the results were posted....

          Slept very well 

           

          Congrats to the winners.....it was not my time but it certainly was yours.

          I hope this next one rolls into Thanksgiving....it should be a good deal close to a billion by then.

            Buying another ticket would have done nothing to ease the feeling of having lost the possible winner. 

            IF the lost ticket had won....it would be by far the most painful experience of my life to date. I could not claim it, I could not even confirm that it was the ticket that I had bought other than knowing the powerball matched, a  clerk at the service plaza saw me buy it from the maching and this other one very pleasant gentleman whom I shared my story with as I was looking for the darn thing. 

            Even with the video evidence, I would never be allowed to claim the prize because the physical ticket is needed.

              As soon as I get my tickets I put them in my wallet.
